My rider flip flops are on the floor next to me. I picked them up to make sure they are rider and found out that the soles are finished. I used them on a daily basis. ImageI have had them for more than 6 years and have traveled the world with me in the last 6 years. I had no idea they were finished and for how long. They are that comfortable, even when broken!
Gorilla glue + clamp for 24 hours = good as new

second the crocs. I hate flip flops but caved and got a pair of these and I love them. they're about to wear through and I need a new pair.
I also suggest croc sandals. I didn't have the 'thong' style but rather the 'slide' style but loved them. I bought some newer Lacoste ones after 5 years of service but still find myself going back to the crocs.

If you are looking for travel sandals, look no further than a pair of Keens like these. Loved mine during my 3 weeks in Brazil, great for pretty much every occasion. The only shoe I wore the whole time there, plus the flip flops posted above.

Also, don't forget the dad jokes!

Don't the soles get slippery when they're wet? I've tried them on at a friend's house and they didn't have good traction on rock/wood/tile when they were wet.

Never slipped in mine and I've worn them on wet pool decks, wet rocks/grass/dock at the cottage, etc. but they're definitely not comparable to the "all-terrain" rugged style sandals with multiple straps. These are just flip-flops/slides.

Another kudos for Keen. I've been wearing Keen's for 10yrs. Best street sandals, waterproof, machine washable, slip grip, comfortable. My last pair lasted 4.5yrs, not bad at all. I just upgraded to the Keen Rialto. Only place I could find them is at MEC. Tough mofos, lol. One of their very few models made in the USA. https://www.mec.ca/en/product/5045-861/Rialto-Sandals

Just get some el cheapo thongs (flip flops) from Old Navy or something, and you'll fit right into Bali. Don't buy those funny looking travel shoes someone posted above, you'll look like a total wanker from the US. All you need is a camera around your neck, a wide brimmed hat and a paper map to complete the look.

Thongs are SO CHEAP over there that even if they last a week or so, buy another pair. BTW, most people walk around barefooted anyway, it's not unusual.
