10 Best Flip Flops for Women UK 2022 | Teva, Havaianas and More

When it comes to classic summer shoes for women, there's nothing quite like the flip flop. From the unmistakable "schlop" sound they make to the open, almost barefoot design, they're a staple of the sunny season and make the perfect holiday sandal too, whether for the beach or evening strolls. Nowadays many even come with arch support or comfy soles for walking long distances. 


We firmly believe that every woman should have a pair of flip flops to slip on and off, so we've put together this guide to help you find some totally top-notch thongs. We scoured the web for the best rubber, leather and fabric pairs so you don't have to, and created a list of our favourites from Teva, Havaianas and more combining comfort, style and wearability.

How to Choose Flip Flops for Women in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Choose the Best Material According to Your Lifestyle
  2. Compare the Many Sole and Strap Options to Look For One That Fits Your Personal Style

1. Between Synthetics and Natural Fibres, Decide the Best Material That Suits Your Lifestyle

1. Between Synthetics and Natural Fibres, Decide the Best Material That Suits Your Lifestyle

Choose Synthetics Like Polyurethane for a Durable and Comfortable Wear

The product description for flip flops will often just say "synthetic", but this can be one of a range of materials. Polyurethane, or faux-leather, is probably the most popular synthetic used to make flip flops and it's plant-based which is great news for vegans.


Some brands use recycled plastic in their straps for a more sustainable option, and many make the sole from EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) which is a non-toxic thermoplastic. EVA is particularly good for creating supportive cushioning for moulded soles, perfect for everyday wear.


Sometimes flip flops will be made from a combination of synthetic and natural materials, with the strap or parts of the upper being made from polyester. Polyester is an excellent choice due to its fabric feel against the skin as well as its durability and water resistance.


While you're here, check out some extremely chic pair of mule heels that will elevate any look.

Pick a Natural Fibre Like Rubber, Leather or Straw if You Prefer a Classic Look and Feel

Rubber is the perfect natural material for creating lightweight, waterproof flip flops that can be worn day to day. Not only is rubber naturally waterproof, but it can float, so you can be sure that your flip flops won’t sink into the salty waves, never to be seen again. It is also flexible, durable and super easy to clean.


The other natural material rivalling rubber is leather, which offers something quite different looks-wise. Leather is also not waterproof, and even being in salt, sand and moisture-filled air can cause it to degrade a little. However, you can apply a leather wax to protect against moisture damage. With proper care, leather can outlive almost any other material.


As well as being very durable with the correct maintenance, leather can be stylish, soft and exceptionally comfortable. You might also find straw to be combined with leather, rubber or another synthetic. A bi-product of the food growing industry, straw is cheap, sustainable and will keep your feet cool while creating a simple, rustic look.

2. Make Sure It Fits With Your Personal Style, Focusing on the Different Options of Soles and Straps

2. Make Sure It Fits With Your Personal Style, Focusing on the Different Options of Soles and Straps

Look Out for Soles That Offer More Support for Your Heels Like Moulded Soles and Ergonomic Flatforms

The sole is often an overlooked feature when buying sandals, but it's important to consider the quality and style of sole of your flip flops. Consisting of an outsole and an insole, it determines how the shoe looks and feels, and crucially, how comfy it is to wear.


If you want to feel as supported as possible while being active, go for a sole that's moulded to the arch of your foot. A cushioned footbed will also offer a similar kind of comfort and support, though if you prefer a flat insole, opt for one that is textured to provide some grip while walking.


Flip flops that have a tiny heel will offer more support for your foot than those that are just one straight outsole, but for a really ergonomic fit, consider flatform flip flops with a slight gradient at the heel. Slightly flared soles or a square toe can add visual appeal too, creating an intentional and stylish look.

Get Plaited or Padded Straps if You're After a Laidback Look, or Add Some Flair With Diamante or Unusual Straps

The toe post and V-shaped strap combination is a signature part of flip flop design, but the style of the straps can vary a lot too. For a chic, laidback look, go for wide, cross straps made from leather or fabric. Plaited or padded straps keep it current and on-trend while ensuring your feet stay comfortable.


Looking for something less beachy and more evening-ready? Bring some sophistication to your feet with diamante straps or other glitzy additions. If you struggle to keep flip flops on, consider wrap-around straps which keep your feet firmly in place while looking feminine and elegant.
