It's super easy to pick out clothes for the beach - all you need to throw into your luggage really are your bikinis, coverup, and sunnies or a floppy hat. What's not as easy? Finding the shoes to go with it. If you want chic footwear that will complete the perfect resort look, you'd want something cute, water-resistant, and comfortable. Three things you only get to see on the runways.

And while pool shoes (above) became a thing on the catwalk, don't you wish there was a ready-to-wear version that's well within our reach? Thankfully, FitFlop’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection makes comfort the new cool. No wonder they recently won the Best Foreign Retail Brand Award from the Philippine Retailers Association.
Fall in love with its charm by taking your pick from the cutest shore-and-poolside-ready sandals below. P.S. Not all are water-proof, but who's to say you won't require a pair for that candlelit dinner your beau prepared for you by the beach?
