The Astral Rosa is no ordinary flip-flop. This little gem converts to a full-on sandal by way of an extra webbing strap that threads through the main straps and around the ankle. This feature gave us fantastic traction and stability and launched what would have been a very basic flip to the top of the pack and into an award-winning position. We gave the Rosa a Top Pick for Hiking and Scrambling award because the versatility it provided meant we could easily be ready for anything. Water, uneven terrain, rocks — you name it. This fun shoe could easily become the only warm weather companion you'll ever need.
If you don't want to bother with an ankle strap but still want excellent support and traction, the Vionic Tide II is a must see. And if you'd rather have something more stylish and less sporty without sacrificing the happiness of your feet, our Editors' Choice Birkenstock Gizeh might just be a dream come true.
