What are the most comfortable flip flops, do you think?

by on Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Because I drink a lot of Diet Coke, I’ve amassed Coke Points! And do you know what you get to do with Coke Points (if you save them like crazy)? You get presents! I’ve finally picked my gift, which is a $50 gift card to Nike.com. I wish it worked for in-store, too. But oh well. Although I need a new pair of sneakers, after reading the comments and reviews for the different Nike sandals, I’m sold on trying a pair of those. I can get sneakers another time.And I’m not picky about what kind of sneakers I get – but with sandals it’s so hard to find a pair that is truly comfortable. It looks like Nike might actually make the most comfortable sandals for women around. So I really have to take the chance on one. But…which one??! Ah, it’s driving me crazy. Since I’m indecisive, I want some help picking so I know what the best flip flops here really are.

So, let’s talk Nike sandals. Once I have an even more comfortable pair I’ll get out more – I hope! Walking Shopdog, etc. Comfort in flip flops is soooo important, yanno?

Celebrate life everyday! Everyday is a holiday.

Today we’re celebrating finding super comfortable flip flops, because blisters are annoying and give you an excuse to stop being active. (And we’re also celebrating that I’m going to be proactive and use my Coke Reward points!)

My personal picks for nike sandals for women / Click to enlarge!

Nike Comfort Women’s Thong Flip Flops $28.00

These look the prettiest to me. But some of the reviews on Zappos.com say that they run narrow (uh oh, not good for me) and maybe you should order one size larger. The good news is that the reviews on Nike.com and Zappos.com both RAVE about how comfortable they are. People say they love them that they’ve bought them in tones of colors and stuff. Well, I don’t know that I would ever go that crazy for one item, but that does show some pretty good evidence that people love these sandals.  There are 45 positive reviews on the Nike website – seriously! Sadly, a lot of sizes and colors are sold out. So I could only get:

But isn't balck so BORING and bulky?

"The Nike Comfort Women's Thong offers your foot the cushioned fit it deserves." But isn't balck so BORING and bulky?

I think these are so cute, but if I get brown sandals will I feel weird wearing black capri's? I love black capri's. Rawr.

If I could buy them on Amazon I could get the Yellow/Blue Sandals in any size. Women’s Nike Comfort Thong (White-Italy/Blue).

Fun and bright, but not available in my size on the site. But they ARE on Amazon.

Amazon also has the pink ones in three popular sizes. Women’s Nike Comfort Thong (Black-White-Vivid/Pink).

See, if I could use my giftcard on Amazon I'd snatch these up!

Nike Benassi JDI Women’s Sandal $20.00

So, the reviews for these sandals are JUST as great. And the black/pink combo is available in my size, and in stock. But I don’t love GIANT logos, which this has. And are these slides better than flip flops? One of the Zappos reviewers say these are “more substantial than flip flops”.

There is also black. (These are also available at Zappos in black – or blue – or gray. Every review gives it five full stars!)

Nike Celso Women’s Thong Flip Flops $22.00

While these are pretty basic, they also have amazing reviews about how they’re like sneakers but in sandal form. Update: On Nike.com they’re sold out in almost every size, so I have to eliminate these.

Nike Solarsoft Women’s Thong Flip Flops $22.00

My options are the pink or the white with the orange base. They look cool, although they’re really freaking basic. If I get something like this, I can buy two pairs and give one to my Mom. All of the reviews on Nike.com are raves about how comfortable they are.

"Wtih a cushioned fit and casual style, the Nike Solarsoft Women's Thong gives you the warm-weather spirit and comfort you're after."

What are the most comfortable flip flops out of this bunch, do you think? COMFORT IS KING.

Your daily challenge from the She’s Smart blog:

Tell me which of these flip flops you think I should get! And include which color. And for yourself, consider if you have a truly pair of comfortable flip flops for running around this summer. If you don’t, consider buying a new pair. Some of these are just $20.00 and seem really durable. If you already have a good pair, recommend the brand to me! And go run around in them, buddy!
