Step Aside, Flip-Flops: Make Way For These 11 So-Awesome Flat Sandals

We love summer as much as the next gal (maybe even a little more), but there's one thing that drives us bonkers about the season — that echoing slap-slap-slap of flip-flops hitting concrete. Sure, it's a pet peeve, and we get that they're comfy/convenient/whatevs, but seriously, there are thousands of flat sandals out there that are chic, comfy, and way more versatile than the ubiquitous rubber slip-ons.
To prove it, we've rounded up some pretty awesome options, ranging from lust-worthy designer finds to dirt-cheap essentials. Need more convincing? You can wear these pairs anywhere: work, weekends, nights out, Sunday brunches, summer weddings, the list goes on. Click on through to see them all, and get ready for some sound-effect-free strolling.
