Forget flip flops, spend the rest of the summer in sandals

flip flop picture o'brien gq.jpgPopsugar reports that GQ writer Glenn O’Brien is not down with flip flops and I’m inclined to agree. They’re great for the beach but for work or social occasions flip flops are just a little too studenty. Unless you’re applying to appear on CH4’s Shipwrecked they shouldn’t really be part of your day-to-day wardrobe.

O’Brien says: “Flip-flops are for the beach or maybe for washing the car or spaniel. They are not the next big thing. They are the last sad thing on the road to stylistic surrender.” Worst of all are the ‘sporty’ or dress flip flop with rugged all-terrain stylings (left), they should never be worn. See after the jump for my pick of the best sandals so you’ll never have to resort to flip flops again.
