I’ve owned (and drunkenly lost) many a pair of flip-flops, specifically Havaianas. They’re cute, they’re stylish, and they say “I’m a cool chick.” But they are NOT the most comfortable shoes on the planet (admit it!), and with a completely flat sole and no give, they’re not the best for your feet either. We have to take care of our soles, sisters. They’re the only ones we got.
Well I have found the most comfortable flip-flops ever: The Reef Stargazer ($27; promo code at the bottom of this post).
Reefs are better for your feet in general because of their structure, especially if you have a high arch as many styles provide the extra support. I used to have and love these Mallory flops, but lost them in a freak vodka accident. But the Stargazer is just incredible. The squishy, supportive sole is BEYOND comfy (read: you can walk all day long in them and not want to die). You don’t have to clench or strain your feet to keep them from slipping–they stay on perfectly so you can walk naturally. And over time, you’ll notice them molding to your feet for even more enjoyable wear. The thin straps are coated for comfort (read: no blistering and/or between-the-toes sores) AND they are sparkly in an understated, classy-not-trashy way.
And brides-to-be: Get a load of the wedding style.
Snag a pair for yourself (or hint to your bridesmaids), then gift the girls with the Stargazer in rose gold so they can dance the night away at your reception in sparkly comfort.

It calculates the free shipping after you enter your shipping info, so you might have to enter them a couple of times. And if you use PayPal, wait to select PayPal until after you enter all your info instead of selecting it immediately as a shortcut. If you select PayPal right away, you wont be able to enter promo codes.
