We asked the BuzzFeed Community for their favorite pairs of comfy flip-flops, and here are their responses!

1. Wide-strapped floppies with a specialty footbed that feels like walking on a yoga mat.

"Anything Mellow Mat by Yellow Box. I bought these when I was pregnant and my feet were so swollen. The most expensive flip flops I’ve ever purchased but so worth it! They are made out of yoga material!"

melissad55

"Most definitely Yellowbox! No matter what pair of scandals you get they’re are so comfy and you can wear them anywhere, they dress up or down."

Get similar pairs from Yellow Box (going left to right) for $35, $52 and $45 — all available in sizes 6-11, including half sizes. (If bling's not your thing, they still have many options!)

Or check 'em out on Amazon in a ton of different styles; ones similar to the shoe on the left are $27.18+, and ones just like the shoes on the far right are $46+.

2. Reef Dreams, with little pillowed contours all over the soles so you feel like you're walking on soft clouds.

"THESE. I use them when I go to theme parks and I have no issues with them comfort wise. The only downfall is they're made of yoga mat material so if they get wet things get squishy." —sarah3fields

Get them from Amazon for $23.80+ (8 colors, size availability varies depending on the color) or Reef for $35 (available whole sizes 5-11 in two colors).

3. And all the rest of Reef's flip-flops, which apparently know the secret to immortality.

reef.com, reef.com

"Reefs. Hands down the best flip-flop ever. They mold perfectly to your foot and last forever. Love love love them."

t49e12a934

Get the cushioned pair with faux-leather snakeskin print straps on Amazon for $20.99+ (8 colors, size availability depends on color) or from Reef's for $38 (4 colors available in whole sizes 5-11).

If you're looking for something water-friendly, get the rubber pair with the underwater scene from Reefs for $24 (6 designs available in whole sizes 5-11), or similar ones in different prints from Amazon for $11.62+ (11 designs, size availability depends on the design).

4. Colorful sandals made of heat-activated foam so they conform to your feet without sacrificing arch support.

"I have Telic flip flops and wouldn't buy anything else. I can wear them all day long. Plenty of cushion and, most importantly, arch support. Not bad for $45."—kerryb18Get a pair from Telic for $22.95 or $44.95, depending on the color you choose — some are on sale (19 colors available, most of them in whole sizes 5-12+). Or get them on Amazon for $16.95+ (14 colors, size availability depends on the color).

5. Sturdy-but-cute flip-flops that Hawaiians and Floridians alike can't get enough of because they're so freaking comfortable.

OluKai / instagram.com, olukai.com

"I absolutely LOVE my OluKai flip flops! I’m a Florida girl so 90% of my shoes are sandals and if I could wear my OluKais everywhere I would. Yes, they are expensive, but they are SO with it. They feel like my feet are being hugged by a cloud AND they offer good arch support — something I am very particular about since I have high arches and plantar fasciitis.

And at $65 a pair you can believe they last forever. I bought my first pair in 2012 before I went on a cruise (and wore them all over Key West and the Bahamas mind you) without a problem and only within the past year did I finally have to replace them — not because they were broken, but because they'd started to smell bad in a way I couldn't clean."

samantham452d10882

"I live on Maui, so slippers/slippahs (flip-flops, sandals, to everyone on the mainland) are a way of life. These are our walking shoes, our hiking shoes, our going to the grocery store shoes. OluKai is the way to go. Expensive, but the most comfortable slippahs you’ll ever have."

6. Classic Rainbows that can last through 10 years of summer pool sides, farmer's markets, beach trips, picnics, dance nights, and lazy days.

instagram.com

"Simple, seriously comfortable, and last for freakin' ever. I’ve had mine for almost 15 years. Granted, the last 10 have been in a state where I can only wear them half the year. That still equals almost 10 years!"

julesk48f2a538b

"Rainbows! They do need to be broken in, but they are the comfiest sandals I’ve owned in my life. And they’re not hideous which is a bonus."

Forget a warm foot bath, a foot massage, or stretching your feet out with tennis balls! Put on some crocs so your feet will thank you. And they’re relatively cheap, so your wallet will thank you too."
