About Tidewater Sandals

The Tidewater Story

Hi, I’m Micheal, pronounced Mih – shell. Like seashells. Coincidence? I think not. You see I own Tidewater, a flip flop company born near Tidewater, VA and now based out of Winston Salem, NC. Although we’re 122 miles from my favorite beach (Oak Island), my job is to make every day feel like a beach day. How cool is that?!

Our flip flops aren’t just super comfy (made from the same material as yoga mats – OHM), they’re super cute. Our designs include coastal themes, sea creatures, dogs, cocktails and more!
Best of all, we give year-round discounts on the most comfortable flip flops to those with the toughest job - teachers.
Tidewater is 20 years old and, after a sale in June of 2020, is female-owned and operated and growing faster than a blue whale thanks to the support of 300+ retail partners and thousands of customers. So if you’re looking for a brand that celebrates coastal living and makes you feel like you’re on vacation – even when you’re not – look no further than Tidewater!

We're best known for our turtles and coastal designs


I love turtles, so I knew when I saw the tie dye turtle flip flops I just had to have them - plus I really needed a new pair. These are the best pair of flip flops I've ever owned (and my first pair from Tidewater). They fit great and are so comfortable. I've basically lived in them all summer (next best thing to being bare foot)! I'd definitely recommend trying a pair. I'm so glad I found Tidewater!
