L.A. gals have quite the collection of sandals. From strappy gladiators and colorful wedges to the beaded and minimalist, nothing beats a breezy, versatile stepper when temps skyrocket and cloying socks are the farthest things from our checked-out minds. But, we noticed a gap in our current arsenal of summer footwear: When it comes to flip-flops that we can wear by the ocean — and beyond — it's slim pickings. So, we went on a hunt for the best slip-ons (no tacky mass-markets here!) with a little something-something that take it to that next level, while still remaining super comfy. Check out our roundup, get those toes painted, and step happy.
