But, as grown-ups who don't spend most of our existence at the beach, we really don't have any business flopping around in them. Still, we appreciate the thong's slip-on-slip-off appeal. And, that's where the slide comes in.
The backless sandal is one of the biggest trends of the season, instantly making any outfit you wear feel more current yet incredibly convenient, too. So, to keep you gliding around in the cool-kid shoe of choice this summer, we've zeroed in on the 26 buys you'll definitely flip for — without the accompanying flop, that is.
