An Ode to the Polarizing Flip-Flop

The shoe with the greatest range of styles.

stylish flip flops
The flip-flops of 20 years ago, even 10, are not the same flip-flops of today. As of late, flip-flops can’t really be defined since their range has grown so exponentially. You still have the classic rubber versions perfect for beach vacations and college community bathrooms. However, in recent years, flip-flops have reached elite status in the fashion industry—who would have thought?—with designers like Tibi and Simon Miller giving them their seal of approval. While we at Coveteur have already established that this is a very polarizing trend, especially when it involves a high heel, we’ll let you decide for yourself.

The style options are endless. Search the internet, and you’ll find sleek options in leather, platform throwbacks, rubber classics, and even a few furry versions. While the rubber ones are always a great option for the beach, the upscale, quirky options pair well with boxy trousers and feminine dresses. More casual renditions work with casual shorts, denim cutoffs, and biker shorts—basically anything in your WFH wardrobe repertoire. Wherever you fall on the spectrum of approval, we have rounded up 12 styles that cater to all.
