5 Best Men’s Flip Flops – To Wear Anywhere!

There are flip-flops that can be worn only in certain places, for instance, on the beach, around the pool, or in the shower, but that’s all. And if this is what you need, then you would rather want to look for casual flip-flops such as the Havaianas. The flip-flops I am talking about in this review are the ones that are super comfortable, supportive, and that you can use anywhere. So if you seek a high-quality pair of flip-flops to wear all day and anywhere, including on boats, mountains, and in rough areas, then you should check out the 5 best men’s flip-flops 2022.

Post updated on 11 June 2022

1. Reef Men’s Fanning Sandal

The Reef Fanning is one of the best flip-flops on the market because they have such great features for relatively good value. It is by no means cheap, but for the price, you will get a ton of use out of them.

The Reef Men’s Fanning features an air-cushion heel that offers great arch support, allowing you to wear them all day without feeling any pain! The secure strap on the top hugs the feet well, which makes them extremely comfortable. It is not uncommon to see the toe strap break out while walking. With the Reef Fanning, this won’t happen so quickly as the strap is well integrated into the sole.

On the other hand, these are very comfortable but not as comfy as the OluKai ‘Ohana, like the ones listed just below. Also, the bottle opener on the outsole is a great feature, but after using it for a while, it may not be of good use to open your beverages. Overall, these are great flip-flops to wear, and they last forever.
Without a doubt, the Reef Fanning ticks all the boxes!

2. Teva Men’s Katavi Thong Outdoor Sandal

Teva in Hebrew means “Nature.” Teva shoes were made especially for people looking at a combination of both comfort and fashion!

All Teva shoes, including flip-flops, are not only comfortable but also offer an exclusive look!

The Teva men’s Kavati Thong Outdoor features molded EVA and rubber soles, making them extremely grippy and comfortable to wear all day long! People who have flat feet, plantar fasciitis, or large feet should wear Teva flops as they offer such great arch support.

Additionally, the bottom of the sandal is made with hard rubber to prevent any sharp object from penetrating through the sole, allowing you can walk anywhere without worrying about hurting your feet. With the Teva Kavati, your feet will be more than satisfied!

3. OluKai ‘Ohana Sandal – Men’s

The Olukai Ohana is the highest-rated flip-flop among all the ones listed in this article simply because these are super high-quality, they have awesome traction, they are extra comfortable and versatile, and they last a long time. What more could you possibly wish for?

As mentioned above, and I won’t stop saying it, the Olukai ‘Ohana Sandal is extremely comfortable and can be worn everywhere and for any occasion! Whether it is for walking, hiking, climbing, sailing, biking, running, or for everyday use, these flops have you covered! Thanks to its soft toe strap, you’ll be able to walk the whole day long comfortably without getting any blisters or feeling any foot pain. In other words. You can live in them!

These offer so many great features, such as molded EVA, allowing your feet to sink into them easily; the material is soft and made of water-resistant synthetic leather, making them very easy to dry. There are other things left I haven’t said yet, which you’ll find in the Pros and Cons below.

4. Sanuk Men’s Beer Cozy Flip-Flop

The Sanuk Beer Cozy is also a highly-rated flip-flop on the market and is greatly appreciated! These flip-flops feature a soft, cushioned footbed making them incredibly agreeable to wear for long hours.

Additionally, the Sanuk Beer Cozy was built with natural yoga mat fabric to hold the feet well even when they get wet, thus preventing slips. Thanks to the Happy U sponge rubber outsole, they won’t leave any marks on your boat!

Just be aware that because the Sanuk is made of yoga material, they may be a bit warm to the touch in hot weather, and this can be annoying sometimes, but besides this, these flops are so comfy that you may find yourself only swearing by them!

5. Sperry Top-Sider Men’s Outer Banks Thong Sandal

Another fabulous pair of flip-flops is the Sperry Top-Sider Men’s Outer Banks Thong Sandals. These will not only accompany you in your everyday life, but they will be faithful to you for years to come!

Whether it is for walking long distances along the beaches, going sailing, camping, or even standing for long hours, these flops will do all the trick!

The Sperry Top-Sider Outer Banks feature Rugged rubber outsoles that also have a fantastic molded Wave-Siping providing you excellent traction on both dry and wet surfaces.

Additionally, these boat flops have leather lacing and a well-textured footbed which not only make these extremely comfortable to wear but will also prevent your feet from slipping off even if wet. The strap between the toes is well integrated into the sole, which holds your feet well into the flops.

On the downside, these flops don’t provide as much cushion as the ones that are listed in this article, but they are worth every penny! If you are looking for a high-quality product at a great price, then look no further than the Sperry Outer Banks!

Average Rank: 4.4 out of 5

  • Great arch support
  • Very comfortable
  • Solid and high-quality
  • Good looking style
  • Non-marking soles
  • Slip-resistant
  • Very durable
  • Fit well
  • They fit a bit tight at first, but after wearing them for a while, they stretch out.
  • These run a bit narrow and long.

We all need a good pair of flip-flops in the summer, no matter the purpose, but if you do buy a pair of flip-flops, you better choose high and strong quality so you can get the best out of them for an extended period. You don’t want to find yourself buying a few months new pair of flip-flops. It would be a waste of money, time, and nerves!

  1. Wow,I like your review and I like Teva Men’s Katavi Thong Outdoor Sandal as it got the hard surface that prevent sharp object penetrate through it. How many type of color available for this sandals? I never know so much about the flip flop until I read your review.Thanks for sharing

    • Hi Tan,

      I agree with you, the Teva are fantastic flip flops and those ones are available in walnut and in Bungee Cord.

      Beautiful natural colors:)

      I am glad you liked the review. Thank you for the compliment and for the comment!

      I wish you a lovely day!

  2. Hey, Daniella, I wear flip flop most of the time when I was at outdoor activities.

    The first I read this I like option 1. Reef Fanning due to the design I think but as I mentioned I wear flip flop most of the time so I really need a comfortable cushion type for my foot. So I also like Sanuk Men. But Sanuk is not waterproof.

    Do you have any others suggestion that could recommend me for the flip flow that waterproof and also cushion type but similar design with Reef and Sanuk?

    • Hi Max,

      Most of the flip flops you see in the article are water resistant but not waterproof. There are many waterproof flip flops with great cushions on the market like Crocs, Adidas, Nike, Reef and many others. These are great to wear but not everywhere because these are mainly made of cross lite or microplastic fabric, and after using them for a while, they deteriorate and become slippery on wet surfaces, thus not really safe, but they are OK on dry surfaces!

      I hope it helped and if you need more info. Please, feel free to contact me, I’ll be more than happy to assist!

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a fantastic day!

  3. I prefer Teva personally. I absolutely love Teva’s. I have owned several pairs and they really last a long time. I live in the desert, so I wear them mostly year-round. I know lots of people who like Reef. I think it’s cool that some of the Reef flip flops come with a bottle opener on the sole of the shoe. I find myself wearing my Teva’s with Jeans or shorts.

    I agree, spend some money and get a good pair. They will last you a long time.

    • Hi Steve,

      Teva shoes are absolutely fantastic, and by the way, this company is not only specialized in shoes but also in the pharmaceutical, not to mention it is the largest company in the world. So I am sure Teva’s products are well constructed and reliable!

      My husband wears them almost everywhere, and he loves them!

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a wonderful day!

  4. Hey Daniella,
    Wow so many flip flop sandals, all my life I thought only Crocs provide quality. I’m really interested in the Olukai’s Ohana sandal, very ergonomic and looks trendy.

    How long will it last if I were to use it every day for gardening though? When I garden it gets pretty dirty and muddy, especially with the rocks that I have to step on.

    • Hi Riaz,

      The Olukai’s Ohana flops are made of strong material and are water resistant, which makes these very easy to dry. As it is mentioned above, these can be worn in rough areas. So, yes, you can wear them for gardening, but to be honest, I cannot tell you how long they will last. If you work the whole day in your garden, chances are your flip flops will deteriorate quicker. But this can happen with the best shoes in the world! There is a difference between wearing or working with flip flops on rough surfaces. It is definitely not same. The only thing you can do is read reviews of customers on Amazon or wherever you wish to or try them and see by yourself:)

      I hope it helped and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have further questions, I’ll be more than happy to assist!

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a wonderful day!

  5. Hi Daniella,
    This is a great article and makes me want to go to the beach! I personally have owned two pair of Reef Flip Flops. They are very comfortable and durable. The pair I currently have has a bottle opener on the bottom of each flip flop so you can pop a top on the fly.. I also like the Sperry Top-Sider Men’s Outer Banks. Thanks for the great information.

    • Hi Mitch

      I am glad you like the article and that it inspires you to go to the beach:)

      Yes, Reef are great flip flops and by the way, those stated in this article also have the bottle opener. It is a fun feature:) Sperry Top-Sider are also fantastic shoes, no wonder as Sperry has such great reputation in the market!

      Thank you very much for the comment and wish you a wonderful day!

  6. It is getting close to the time of the year we can wear flip flops and other summer attire once again. The flip flops in your article appear much nicer than the ones I can purchase locally where I live.

    How do I decide on what size to order for these flip flops, I wear a size 101/2 shoe, can you give me any idea what size of flip flops I should order?

    • Hi Jeffrey,

      Indeed, the summer is coming, and it is effectively the best time to wear flip flops. I wear them everywhere:)

      It depends on where you live. There are many local stores where you can find high-quality flip flops similar to the ones listed in the article. It is just that they are cheaper on Amazon and this the main reason why people prefer to buy them online.

      To answer your question about the size. If you wear 101/2, you’ll need to order the 9 1/2 or 10. Be aware that some of them run longer or large and this is something you’ll need to figure out.

      I hope it helped and if you need to know more information, feel free to contact me, I’ll be more than happy to assist!

      Thank you fort the comment and wish you a great day!

  7. I currently have a pair of flip flops for the beach, but it would be nice to see what else is out there when these go. Personally, I think the Teva Men’s Katavi Thong Outdoor Sandal looks like the best one on your list. The hard rubber bottom would work well whether I’m walking on sand or the road. Thanks for the information!

    • Hi Kevin,

      Yes, it’s always good to look what’s new out there. The Teva Men’s Katavi Thong is a great pair of flip-flops. And as I said in the article, they provide fantastic support and traction on both dry and wet surfaces thanks to their thick and anti-slipping outsole!

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a great day!

  8. We are a fan of the Sanuk flip flop and my son has a couple of pairs of them. He loves them. He is a bit OCD….well more than just a bit. But with these sandals, they fit him perfectly and he does not complain. So I think that this is probably the best pair for sure. Do you know if they make a good Sanuk flip flop for women?

    • Hi Matts,

      Yes, sure, Sanuk has designed beautiful flip flops for women. My daughter and I own a pair and they are extremely comfortable. The footbed is made of yoga mat, that’s what makes them so comfy on the feet. Anyway, I’ll be reviewing them very soon, so stay tuned:)

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a lovely day!
