13 pairs of flatform flip flops we love

These leather sandals are the shoes of the summer.

Remember flip flops? They’re back and better than ever.

It’s lucky summer is coming up, because we’ve grown used to living without shoes. Like everyone, we’ve been barefoot permanently as we work from home and we’re not mad about it – but the idea of wearing boots again doesn’t fill us with joy.

Fortunately this summer’s sandals of choice are trusty flip flops, but not as you know them. We’re ditching flimsy pairs for hardwearing leather with a flatform, keeping our toes comfy as we brace ourselves for our social lives making their long-awaited return.

These sandals are like walking on air, making them perfect for summer fun. Whether you’re meeting friends in the park, going for coffee or heading to the beach (we wish!), flatform flip flops make for the perfect choice.

Did we mention they’re also super chic? Influencers Monikh Dale, Karen Blanchard and Lucy Williams count themselves as fans, and as some of the most stylish women on the app, they’ve had us convinced for some time.

Jacquemas, Stella McCartney and many more designers introduced us to the updated sandals last year, and the high street has caught on. We’ve found 13 pairs from Zara, Mango, Arket and more, starting from just £27.99 to help you get the look.
