We all dream of the perfect beach — soft sand, a great book, and a cold drink in hand. And the perfect beach outfit is part of that.

While going barefoot as the waves lap all around you sounds ideal, sometimes you need a good sandal to go with your swimsuit and stylish cover-up.

Luckily, the water-resistant OluKai Ohana Sandals have more than 1,300 Nordstrom shoppers raving about how comfortable and supportive they are. And the sandals are inspired by the islands of Hawaii, making them the perfect shoes for sipping a Mai Tai on the beaches of the Aloha state.

The sandals are $65, which is a bit on the pricey side for flip-flops, but they feature a water-resistant strap and a quick-dry lining and can go from beach day to sightseeing with the gum-rubber sole. Plus, they come in 15 different colors so you can find one to match every outfit.

These OluKai flip-flops come in whole sizes, so Nordstrom recommends ordering a size down if you’re a half-size.

And Nordstrom shoppers can’t get enough, often buying multiple pairs. Reviewer BlackKitty65 loves them so much, they bought them in two different colors.

“I love comfort sandals! And these are great ones! I've had a black pair that have been the-only-shoes-I-wear-all-summer. Now I have these cute white ones, so they can be added to the rotation!” BlackKitty65 wrote. “The white ones are just a wee bit dressier looking so I can wear them with summer dresses. [Indestructible], fit tight enough to do some walking in them, arch support feels great for my feet. Love them and would consider getting them in more colors.”

Kathoncamano wrote these are the only flip-flops she’ll wear.

“These are the only flip flops my old feet can tolerate,” Kathoncamano wrote. “I just bought my fourth pair in ten years. I have one pair with a heel I wear occasionally. I have worn through one pair of these and have just replaced a pair that were starting to wear. I now have a dress pair and a work pair. I thought the price was a bit high but the shoe clerk told me they would be the most comfortable flip flop ever and to return them if not. Needless to say he was absolutely correct. They are so comfy and I can stand and walk in them for hours. I have wide feet but these aren’t a problem.”

And Gamma50g even likes the flip flops for wearing around the house.

“By far my favorite in-house flip flops. This is my fourth pair,” Gamma50g wrote. “Each pair lasts for about a year before the impact cushioning wears out for me. Both, me and my husband wear Olukais. It feels like walking on clouds when we walk on our hardwood floors. It is still worth it to spend on these each year to protect our feet from damage due to hardwood floors.”
