PROS

The canoe-lash whipstitching and octopus-inspired laser-etched artwork make these sandals look elegant and refined. The hand-sewn leather toe post makes sure that the skin between the big toe and the index toe never chafes, so you won't have to worry about calluses/blisters.

CONS

The flip-flops are not moisture-resistant. 

OUR VERDICT

OLUKAI Men's MEA Ola Sandals will let you walk anywhere with poise and comfort. These things are equally versatile, practical, and elegant. In other words, these are easily the best flip-flops for men on the list. They're definitely the most comfortable stylish sandals within this group.

OLUKAI MEA Ola

Poise and Comfort

The OLUKAI Men's MEA Ola Sandals are not cheap, but the price makes sense considering everything that these flip-flops have to offer. First (not necessarily foremost though), these things do not look nearly as basic/boring/uninspired as most flip-flops. The canoe-lash whipstitching and octopus-inspired laser-etched artwork make these things look elegant and refined.

At the same time, these sandals are equally practical. The hand-sewn leather toe post makes sure that the skin between the big toe and the index toe never chafes, so you won't have to worry about calluses/blisters. Plus, the post is as durable as they come.

Meanwhile, the full-grain leather straps with soft microfiber lining makes the flip-flops resistant to everyday wear and tear. The only issue with its leather base is that the model's not moisture-resistant.

On the bright side, the compression-molded EVA midsole wrapped in full-grain leather brings anatomically correct contouring to deliver personalized fit and sustained comfort over time.

Apart from that, the full-grain leather wrapped outsole with non-marking rubber traction pods give you improved grip and flexibility, making the sandals especially versatile.

Bottom line, the OLUKAI Men's MEA Ola Sandals will let you walk anywhere with poise and comfort. These things are equally versatile, practical, and elegant. In other words, these are easily the best flip-flops for men on the list.

Volcom Recliner

Enjoy the Walk/Ride

Volcom Men's Recliner Leather Sandals will let your feet relax and pretty much enjoy the ride.

First things first, the RCF™ molded polyurethane footbed is pleasant to the touch, soft, and especially comfortable. The footbed brings exceptional cushioning, so you won't be feeling the ground at all.

At the same time, the non-scuff molded TPR outsole will let you walk any ground and tackle any terrain.

The outsole offers superior traction and balance, meaning you shouldn't face any challenges walking on pebbles and slippery floors.

The leather straps and faux pigskin lining make these sandals pretty rugged and plenty durable.

The only issue here is that the aforementioned lining is not sweat-resistant, so you might experience minor discomfort in that area when the weather gets scorching hot.

On the flip side (pardon the pun), the meta logo pin adds character to these flip-flops and makes the otherwise boring profile relatively interesting.

Last but not least, the available sizes range from 6 to 13 M, so you'll definitely find a fitting pair.

To sum up, Volcom Men's Recliner Leather Sandals bring a great deal of comfort to the proverbial equation. You'll be able to wear these things pretty much anywhere you go.

REEF Rover

Water-Friendly Flip-Flops

The Reef Men's Rover Flip Flops are pretty awesome. First off, the price is as affordable as they come considering how good these things are.

Incorporating air mesh lining and this contoured injection-molded EVA footbed, these sandals are soft and comfortable. At the same time, the synthetic nubuck upper makes these things water-friendly.

Outfitted with anatomical arch support, these flip-flops offer fantastic grip and fit to keep you on your feet throughout the day without any discomfort.

Meanwhile, there's also the rubber outsole featuring Swellular™ technology with a tread pattern that mimics the oceans' lines for excellent grip and traction.

As far as we're concerned, there's not much to complain about here. Sure, these sandals do not look all that elegant, but these are sports and beach shoes. In other words, these things weren't designed to challenge casual footwear.

Our only problem with these flip-flops is that the part that goes between the toes wears out relatively quickly.

Setting that aside, Reef Men's Rover Flip Flops are the best sandals for sports and the beach. The compression-molded triple-density construction makes these things sturdy and durable enough to withstand major everyday abuse. These lightweight flip-flops will let you walk long distances with comfort and confidence.

Sperry Havasu

Excellent Traction

Sperry Havasu Men's Sandals do not trail behind their competition within the same price range. In fact, these sandals boast major advantages compared to most other flip-flops.

The leather upper is stain- and water-resistant, providing durable and lasting wear. Plus, there's also the reinforced stitching that makes these flip-flops particularly sturdy and durable.

Incorporating EVA foam, the midsole is soft and plush, making the feet feel especially comfortable.

Meanwhile, the molded Wave-Siping™ rubber outsole works wonders dispersing water under the feet to reduce slippage.

Flip-flops seldom look particularly elegant but, as far as we're concerned, these things look as attractive as sandals go.

Even though flip-flops are not even remotely complicated footwear-wise, there are no perfect flip-flops.

Having said that, we don't have any major issues with these things. The available sizes range from 8 to 13 M, meaning that people with smaller and larger feet might have issues finding the perfect sandals.

Other than that though, the Sperry Havasu Men's Sandals are pretty awesome. They're available in different color schemes. The sandals are really comfortable and surprisingly reliable. Plus, these things offer excellent traction on wet decks.

MAIITRIP Soft

Ridiculous Value

The MAIITRIP Men's Soft Comfort Flip Flops are ridiculously cheap.

The sandals are available in every size between 7 and 13 M. At the same time, these things are available in different color schemes (the straps change, the sole remains the same black color).

As the name suggests, these flip-flops are especially comfortable. The dual-density EVA midsole brings solid cushioning and sustained comfort over time.

Meanwhile, the non-slip rubber outsole delivers the necessary traction and stability to tackle any and all surfaces and terrains.

The sandals' ergonomic design keeps you comfortable walking indoors as well as outdoors. The thick cushion footbeds, on the other hand, bring big-time shock-absorbing performance.

The upper remains dry and breathable no matter what. The quick-dry flyknit material flushes out water and/or sweat as fast as possible, offering outstanding air permeability and fast-drying performance to keep things cool and dry down there (in the feet area).

The only thing that gives away the price is this noticeable chemical smell that, fortunately, goes away fairly quickly, so we wouldn't worry too much about that.

In short, as far as the price-performance ratio is concerned, MAIITRIP Men's Soft Comfort Flip Flops pretty much epitomize value.

Review of MAIITRIP Soft Comfort Flip Flops

 

What are Flip-Flops for Men?

Sometimes, you're able to balance comfort and style. More often than not though, sacrifices have to be made. We're not saying that you have to compromise comfort and suffer the worst pain imaginable and vice versa.

We are, however, saying that sometimes minor fashion sacrifices will let you walk with so much comfort that you will forget about these small-time sacrifices minutes after making them.

As far as we're concerned, that's where flip-flops land on the comfort-style spectrum. Some flip-flops for men look attractive and even sometimes elegant.

Even the most elegant sandals don't look that great compared to high-end shoes though. At the same time, you won't feel particularly comfortable in these shoes come summertime and you definitely won't feel all too comfortable at the beach in shoes like that.

Flip-flops, however, are equally comfortable to put on and take off. You can wear them pretty much anywhere you want come summer (bar formal gatherings and certain scenes/occasions). Plus, these sandals are usually much cheaper compared to mid-range casual and formal footwear.

Come winter though, you'll definitely want to toss these flip-flops away and acquire high-quality winter boots and maybe even hunting boots/hiking boots, depending on where your preferred hobbies/activities lie.
