My new Sanuk flippies were a gift from my sweet mom, who went to the local surf shop to buy them for me after my silver Havaianas flip-flops were stolen from the beach near the home of my parents. (Beach-goers leave their shoes by the dunes before walking onto the beach, but my pair apparently caught the eyes of a shoe thief.) Mom wanted to replace them and picked the only silver pair the shop had in my size — and it is a definite upgrade. I love the simple style and comfort of Havaianas, but these Sanuks — made from recycled yoga mats! — are pillowy and feel dreamy on my feet.
