To say I’m a TKEES sandals fan is a bit of an understatement. Ever since I discovered them about four years ago, they’ve slowly become the only flip-flop style sandals I own. They’re comfy and can take a bit of a beating, plus they’re chic enough for me to wear into the city, but casual enough for a pool party or walk to the beach. And unlike the Havaianas I used to hoard (sorry, Havaianas!) they will never be mistaken for gym shower shoes.
So when I saw some of the new TKEES styles out, which can get me exploring beyond the neutral shades of TKEES Foundations flip-flops that I live in — yeah, something Pavlovian kicked in and it was like…must…buy…TKEES….
Just know you can find pretty much every style of these flip-flops on the TKEES website or I often hit Nordstrom’s TKEES selection first. Because, Nordstrom.

The new TKEES Metallics and TKEES Glitters are so fun, in a glittery silver, black or gold or other metallics that are far more subtle than the brazenly blingy accessories of yore. They seem to shimmer more than they blind you. That’s a good thing.
Ombre is not going anywhere, and I love how it comes to life in TKEES blends which are like their shiny “Gloss” style flip-flops plus that awesome gradation of color. There are six cool style and I really am having a hard time picking a favorite, but I sense those blues could get a lot of wear from me.
(Update: these are no longer available, but for a pop of bold color check out the TKEES pigments sandals in colors from neutrals to pastels to bright primary colors.)
But the one I actually broke down and bought directly off their site? The TKEES Contours in Golden Gate, which is a glossy black/white with the contrast of a golden strap. If you were to glance at my closet — my recently KonMari’d closet, that is, which means you can actually find things in it — your eye would go right to them.
I think styles like this make flip-flops just a little sexier and a little dressier, right? Kind of? And hey, any excuse to get out of heels (what? They’re my fancy flip flops…) is great by me.
While they say to size down, hm…I think they run a teeny bit small if not perfectly true to size. Buy true to size or, if you’re a half-size like me, I’d say definitely size up. The size 7 fits my 6.5 feet perfectly.
