Being from Florida, I know all about flip flops and sandals. I pretty much live in them (at least when I am not barefooted). I even wear them in the Winter too. I just love how comfortable they feel on my feet. And since becoming a mom there is another good thing about them too. You don't have to find sock to wear with them like tennis shoes, and you don't have to spend time tying them etc. You just slip them on and go. I pretty much just have them from Target or Walmart but I have heard of some really nice Dansko sandals too. I might just check them out.
