good slip on walking shoes?

I'm 11 days post L5-S1 laminectomy. Was walking day of surgery and average 4-5 walks per day. I'm very happy to be able to walk again. Form improves daily and I'm adding distance without noticeable strain or soreness.

Now there is no way I can put on lace up shoes yet. I'm a flip-flop person and that has been what I've been wearing. I can say I've got some great flips with arch support (really, they do and are adjustable too).

So, can anyone recommend good slip on walking shoes?

My flips may be fine, but are not great after a few miles.
