With summer coming to a grinding halt, and fall just around the corner, we can start to expect our feet to be getting cold. But, before the dreaded dreary weather is upon us, we should try to get the most out of the best shoe of all— the flip flop. After all, there is nothing more convenient than slipping on a cute pair of floppers and walking right out the door. And, although it is mid-August, we still have a month or so left of the warm weather, so here are some cute shoe options that will help you breeze through what is left of summer.
It is a more expensive option, but worth it in the long run. Spending some extra cash on a pair of designer/premium dsigner flip flops pretty much guarantees you will have the shoe for a LONG time. Look for the Tory Burch enamel logo flip flip is cute, simple and rubber, which makes it perfect for any day when you might run into something that will get your feet wet (like, maybe a pool or a summer shower). For a more dressy option, check out Diane Von Furstenberg’s love knot flip flops. Available in a whole slew of different fun and bright colors, this shoe can dress up a pair of jeans or a cute summer dress with its leather footbed.
Thank you, Cameron Diaz, for pointing out Havianas to the US. Ever since she stated that they were her summer staple, the brand has spread like wildfire (they are so popular that the Oscars include special models in their nominees’ swag bags). From fit to slim, limited edition to the make your own, Haviana has a shoe for every foot– whether it is male, female or child. They have a wide variety of colors, patterns and embellishments, and several different fit options, making a Haviana store flip flop heaven.
Head to the Tanger Outlet in Deer Park or Riverhead and find great deals on everything under the sun, including flip flops. Look in stores like Juicy and BCBG, Gap and Old Navy, even Famous Footwear. You might even be so lucky as to snag a pair of Prada flip flops in Off Saks. With summer stock heading out and fall stock moving in, now is the perfect time to find great prices on nice, high quality, flip flops. So stock up for next summer and your feet will be well on their way to looking, and keeping, cool in 2012!
A tip for the season change: Keep in mind that you do not have to cease wearing flip flops as soon as the weather starts to cool off… ditch your shorts for jeans, but keep those thongs on your feet! Flip flops are definately a shoe that you can wear on a nice fall day. Also keep your eyes open for great deals on summer shoes as the fall season begins, and look for flip flops that can translate well into the new season.
