Sure, summer is over and we’re well into the fall season. But does that really mean we have to let go of our favorite summertime staple? Some people don’t think so. Hence, the flip-flop sock, perfect for those who aren’t quite ready to let go of the breathable shoe despite the chilly weather.

Available all over Etsy, flip-flop socks are knitted and designed specifically for wearing with flip-flops. No heel or toe included.

These comfy socks are perfect for those into yoga, those who like wearing socks without slipping around, those perhaps getting a pedicure who want to keep the rest of their feet warm while doing so — the reasons as to why you’d wear them are endless! We’ve scoured Etsy for some of our favorites. Let us know which ones you like best!
