Flip flop season is here so, whether you like it or not, it is time to show your toes and give your feet a comfortable ride for the warm sunny days ahead.
At Hardcloud, we've an extensive range of flip flops and sandals for you to choose from. Whether you prefer a leather sandal to smarten up your look or a regular flip flop for the beach or the pool, we've pretty much got you covered.
Lets deal with the men first:
Reef leather sandals
Reef are renowned for producing good quality sandals and flip flops that last. From their leather and leather-look range, we've selected the best styles for you to parade up and down the beach in or to wear to your favourite bar in the evening.
The Skinny SL leather sandal is an old favourite style, with a slim strap and classic Reef branding imprinted on the footbed, whereas the J-Bay III leather sandal has a bit more to it – arch support and an anatomical shape.
Named after pro-surfer Mick Fanning, this style has featured in the range for a reasonable amount of time which is testament to it's popularity. Once you try on a pair, you will realise that it is well worth the price tag.
The Reef Fanning sandal (we prefer to call it a sandal as it is so much more than a regular flip flop) comes in many different colours and prints. The wide strap provides good support, as does the arch support. Turn it over, and you may get a pop of bright colour (depending on which print you choose), but you will also find the bottle opener in the sole – the trademark feature of the Fanning.
Sanuk Flip Flops
Sanuk footwear prides itself on being one of the most comfortable brands on the surf lifestyle market. From the traditional Beer Cozy flip flops to the premium Party Wave Compass flip flops, there are plenty of styles to choose from.
Add some funk to your step with the new Beer Cozy Light Funk flip flops. The printed custom strap adds some colour to your footwear and is comfortable across the top of the foot.
The Party Wave Compass flip flops are the most lightweight style that Sanuk have to offer. The footstrap is made from nylon mesh and has a soft neoprene lining: heaven in a flip flop.
Volcom, Quiksilver, Billabong and Rip Curl Flip Flops
Don't forget to check the range from these major players. Quiksilver's most popular style has to be the Monkey Abyss – the frayed footstrap epitomises the relaxed surf lifestyle. Volcom have some comfy styles as do Rip Curl and Billabong.
