    I'm in the market for sandals, and I'm currently stuck on which ones to purchase. These are the two I narrowed it down to:

    Option 1:

    Option 2:

    Which one would be the better purchase? Which ones are more versatile, fashionable? If it matters, I'm an 18 yo college student.

    unless you're wearing them in the dorm shower, don't bother.

    Referring to which one? or just sandals in general? I don't wear sandals a lot; but to lounge around, do quick errands, and go to beach, I like to have a nice pair

    IMHO sandals give off a "I don't give a shit, bro" feel. I do understand the utility however...If I were you, just find a pair of classic Havaianas. Simple and well made.

    Rainbow sandals are the only flip-flops you should buy.

    I can see why they would give that vibe. But yeah, they do have situations where they come in extremely handy. What do you wear to the beach?

    Havaianas man!

    You can find a lot of classy sandals too if you're trying to pull of that look. I know Reef and Quiksilver sell some plain chique, flip flops. Those sport ones are just too much.
