It's time to manicure those feet! Summer is upon us, which means flip-flops, sandals and other toe-tastic shoes are hitting the market in full force. Here's a look at some of our favorites.

Love 'em or hate 'em, Birkenstock date back to 1774, which means this fashion trend is here to stay. Just ask Kay Perry, sporting the Arizona Big Buckle.

Zerrows Boots and Shoes is known for its biker gear and accessories, but come summer, the Japanese brand lightens things up with a range of sandals.

Nothing says summer like a pair of Hari Mari sandals. Bonus: The company gives 1% of its sales to fight pediatric cancer.

Iconic sandal brand Teva dates back to 1984 and the Grand Canyon when a river guide added a Velcro ankle strap to flip-flops to keep them from floating downstream. The Hurricane Verge, shown here, features an updated buckle and quick-dry webbing.

Slide into H&M's platform pool shoes, featuring a molded sole and fluted base.

Supermodel Letty Schmiterlow shows off color-block leather slides, reinterpreting Burberry's classic plaid motif.

Aldo's affordable Inderpaul slide sandals look great with shorts, joggers, or nothing, depending on what company you're keeping.
