    Hi

    I am off to Crete soon with my boyfriend. The past few times we have been abroad he's taken flip flop sandles and then pumps and normal shoes....but Crete is gonna be hot hot hot!

    The problem is he cannot walk in flip flops and detests them. We want to find him some sandles that he can walk in, that aren't flip flops but wont make him look like a grandad! Any ideas? :confused:

    He's probably used to wearing cheap crappy flip flops.

    Try something like Abercrombie flip flops. Expensive? Yes. Comfortable? Oh hell yes.

    I used to have the same problem until I realised that anything under 20 quid will butcher your feet.

    WHy not try some nike air rifts , I like to think of them as a trainer/sandal hybrid . They won't give you the airflow sandals do but aren't as bad a wearing trainers. They aren't cheap btw unless you buy fakes which I wouldn't recomend.
