Summer Kicks

Your guide to men's flip-flops

It's day 2 of summer. Time to lose emasculating mandals and tree-hugging Tevas in favor of these stylish, comfortable flip-flops.

The Basics
Rainbow leather flip-flops famously mold to your feet as you wear them. If you're cruelty-free, Havaianas are made with rubber and just as comfortable. 
Havaianas $17, Rainbows $46 at sandalsuperstore.com  (888-760-4236)

Sporty
OluKai's Kula leather sandals with laser etched designs have a special anatomical footbed shape that will hold up for a pickup soccer game. Tretorn flip-flops look like skeletal Converse sneakers, and also get the job done at gametime.
OluKai Kula $90, Tretorn $55 at zappos.com (800-927-7671)

Dress
Yes, dress. Paul Smith's camel-colored leather Swami sandals are sharp enough to wear with a linen suit. Go preppy with Ralph Lauren's Quintine flip-flops featuring madras plaid padded insoles.
Paul Smith Swami sandals $185 at Barneys New York, 9570 Wilshire Blvd (310-276-4400). Ralph Lauren Quintines $250 at saksfifthavenue.com (877-551-7257).
