Save the flip flops for camp.
Sure, your favorite flip flops feel great when you're milling around camp with a well-earned cocktail in hand, but that doesn't mean you should wear them out on the trail—that's best left to The North Face Men's Litewave Explore Hiking Shoe. Being a light and breathable hiker, the Litewave won't smother your used-to-cool-air foot with swampy leather, but will actually offer a steady supply of cool and comfortable air thanks to the closed mesh upper.
The North Face knew what you were going to say about all that mesh being breathable, but not necessarily all that tough, so it added welded TPU overlays and a protective toe cap to protect the shoe from wear and tear. And if you're still considering your flip flops, just remember that the Litewave's cushioning EVA midsole and rugged UltrAtac rubber sole will carry you much further, and in more comfort, than the twenty feet between the campfire and beer cooler.
