What screams summer more than flip-flops?  My favorites: Cobian Nia's. The arch support makes them comfortable enough to actually walk for miles (which I have) and finishes in metallic gold, metallic silver and black patent make them look a bit more like a sandal than a flop. Which brand do you like?

FYI: Those are not Cobian Nia flip-flops hanging out of that van; I just liked the image (via

but I have never used that website.  You can also try beach surf shops.
