Flip-flops have always been tough for my son. I kind of assume they're tough for all kids, in fact. I mean, they just FEEL weird, right, and when there's a back strap, it never stays on, and these little toddlers are constantly adjusting their already-uncomfortable shoes. I don't blame him for hating flip-flops until now, is what I'm basically trying to say.
But, we live in Texas and close-toed shoes or even sandals with a lot of material just seem unnecessary in this heat. I wanted minimal footwear at maximum comfort for the long, hot months, but I was beginning to think that was a shoe pipe dream.
Until we found these Reef Slap II Flip-flops:

He loves these shoes and hasn't once complained about them being uncomfortable OR needed to stop mid-play to adjust the back straps. They've basically seen us through the entire summer (so far) and he's worn little else.
I think we'll be investing in multiple sizes since you can wear flip-flops 10 out of 12 months here.
