When it comes to summer footwear, the flip-flop certainly reigns supreme among both men and women. A popular style that dates back to ancient Egypt, they’re comfortable, affordable and can be worn with just about anything.

That’s not to say that all flip-flops were created equal - some styles are too thin and wear down over time. Others are too hard and cut into your skin, leaving behind painful blisters along the straps.

According to Amazon reviewers, one brand has managed to create the perfect balance of comfort and durability, and with more than 5,000 reviews to back them up, there’s no doubt that Havaianas maintain the current top flip-flop spot.

What are they?

Since their launch in 1962, shoppers have fallen for Brazil’s best-known sandals brand Havaianas. Their iconic rubber flip-flops feature a plush, marshmallow-like textured sole that feels great under feet and provides extreme comfort.

Available in a rainbow of colours, the flip-flops currently sit among Amazon's list of best-selling flip-flops, with multiple styles to choose from. The Havaianas Women's Slim Flip Flop is an update on their classic Havaianas Women's Top Sandal Flip Flop, and feature a thinner foot strap for a more delicate look.

Why shoppers love them

These sandals have earned a solid 4.2 star rating on 5,600 customer reviews, all thanks to their affordable price point and ultra-comfortable fit.

“Havianas are my absolute favourite flip-flops,” revealed one reviewer. “They are comfy - I have never got a blister - and I can trust them not to fall apart. I wear them everyday and they are great for short walks. As with most flip-flops they are flat, so not arch support, but they are comfortable enough to wear walking around all day.”

“I have owned a few pairs of these in my lifetime and they are my favourite,” added another. “If you like slim, comfortable flip-flops I recommend buying these. No issues whatsoever.”

As expected, these flip-flops are not intended to replace supportive footwear, but they are an ideal pick for warm weather. Since they’re completely waterproof, they also make a great choice for beach and pool days.

The verdict

If you’re on the hunt for durable flip-flops that stand the test of time, Havaianas are a standout choice - one reviewer even revealed that their pair has lasted more than 13 years!

Currently, you’ll find the best size selection on Amazon in their classic colours like black, navy, and gold, but if you check back often you’ll surely be able to find your new favourites.
