Flip-flops are the essence of summer, the beach accessory as quintessential as your summer playlist. Flip-flops are as summer as the bright towel that seals your spot on the playa. They’re jumping with your mates into the water, your footprint on the midnight shore or the vibration of the plane on the runway.

Wear flip-flops and you ride the waves rather than chase the dollar. You buck the trend. Go your own way. Live the maverick life.
