Flip Flops For 2011

There seems to be some debate over what a flip flop sandal actually is.  For me, flip-flops are flat thong sandals, and are usually casual.  Their defining characteristic is that they have no ankle straps or anything to hold them on at the back of the foot; they only have the thong at the front, so when you walk you get the flip-flop sound.

Some people call them thongs or thong sandals, flip-flops or beach shoes.  But whatever you want to call them, these top picks in women’s flip-flops will keep you comfortable and stylish until autumn comes!
