Flip Flop Size Guide for Women, Men, Kids

Flip-flops are sandals characterized by Y-shaped straps. The Y shape strap is usually upside-down, with the base fitting between the big toe ad the second toe. The rear two ends are connected to the sides of the sole near your foot’s arch (skip straight to the Flip Flop size chart).

Unlike regular sandals, flip-flops do not have straps at the back. They also don’t have adjustment accessories such as buckles or snaps. Flip flops originated from their common characteristic of hitting the feet while walking.

Flip-flops for adults do not have adjustment solutions, so you cannot alter them to fit your feet. Hence, buying a larger flip-flop may cause you to drag your feet, injuring yourself. Children’s Flip-Flops in toddler sizes have an elastic heel strap to optimize fitting.

So, whether you have a wide foot or a narrow foot, it’s essential to confirm the flip flop size tags match your measurements.
