    Well, "Winter" Can Be Sort of a Misleading Term.

    Rubber Boots Over Flipflops

    The sister of a girl I work with attends college in Erie, PA where the snow is almost knee-deep all winter, as I understand it. She loves wearing her flipflops year-round, and she had a stroke of genius: she bought a pair of colorful rubber rain boots large enough to fit easily...

    I Designed My Own Range Because I Loved Them So Much!

    I love flip flops so much that I have designed my own range! They are called BEASTS and each design features the face of an endangered animal on the insole! £1 from each pair I sell is donated to The Born Free Foundation to protect these animals from extinction. I started...

    Well, What Winter We Do Have.

    I live in the south, so we don't have much winter to speak of.  When it is cold out, I am not outside long enough to get uncomfortable.  So, I wear flip flops.
