    I have some flip flops from LLBean. They are comfortable, but I got calluses on the bottom of my feet, right at the pressure point of my foot, from wearing them! :eek:

    Do all flip flops cause this, or are there some that do not?

    have you tried the flip flops from JCrew ? I think I've got about 15 pairs ( I add a pair or two each year). they are truly the most comfortable flip flops ever. This year I might try the Crocs Crocband Flip. I asked about them in another thread and they got really positive reviews. ( can't go wrong if it's Crocs!) :cool1:
    But the JCrew flip flops have never given me trouble at all and I've worn them for years. (and worn them to Disney twice and didn't have any issues) Plus you can get them in a ton of really nice colors and patterns....they'll go with everything .:cool1:

    I love Nike Celsos. They come in a variety of colors, are lightweight and very comfy.

    Teva Mush. I swear by them. They feel like you're walking on air.

    A vote for Crocs Capris. They have good heel cushioning. I can no longer wear regular flip flops but I never have a problem with the Crocs kind (with the molded foot-bed). A plus is that the Capris have a suede or cloth strap so they don't have a very Croc-ish plastic-ey look.:goodvibes

    (- I loved Athens too! Capri seems to be the closest - the one piece ABF look too flimsy)

    I second these. I love them! I've worn them all day walking around Disney and my feet never hurt me.

    I thrid J Crew flip flops. They've been on over 5 Disney trips with me and I've never had any foot issues. Also, no breaking in period where you get blisters, etc. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

    These are the ones I normally wear. They do have plain ones too.

    I don't like to wear any of the foam type flips as they irritate my feet. It's almost like they suck the moisture out of them. I have some Speedo ones that kind of are okay, but they're still not great.

    I do like Crocs though. I just bought a pair last night.....Florence.
    I went through crocs online store. $26.99 total including shipping if you use that code that gets you 10% off plus free shipping

    Im a flip flop girl !! I wear them everyday even to work (I just try to keep my feet under my desk) I own dozens of different flip flops of all kinds. Hands down the Teva Mush flip flops are the best (J Crew is a close second). For some reason the Croc flip flops kill my feet. I guess everyone is different.

    Teva Mush. I bought my pair, then went back and bought 3 more pairs so each of us girls could have one.

    I have both tevas and Nike Celsos and must say the Celsos are just more comfortable then the Tevas..... but it is close.:goodvibes

    I have a pair of Privo flip flops that I LOVE. I'm pretty sure I got them at 6pm.com.

    Teva Mush! I heard about them last year from a shoe for the parks thread and ordered some pairs. Definitely the most comfortable flip flops ever!
