I am SO excited to be back in flip flops!!! I can't wear the cheap ones, either, but the better ones have come SO far down in price now. I have a pair of Tivas, a pair of Reebok, and a pair of Bjorn...all for $20-25 a pair..and all three have at least SOME arch support.
I went yesterday and bought the little girls each a cute pair, too. ..but they got the $4 Walmart ones!! It is SO nice to just be able to holler at everyone to get their shoes on and know THEY can do it without me having to tie them or buckle them or make sure they grabbed appropriate socks, etc.
