In Honor of National Flip Flop Day…

by Christi Borden

 

 

Did you know today is National Flip Flop Day? What a great excuse to free your little piggy’s from their torturous entrapment and don your favorite flop. There is actually a history behind the celebration, of sorts and you will find out more than you could ever know about the lovable footwear on http://www.pecheblu.com/history.php . With an ancestry going back to ancient Japan, Rome, Egypt, today’s flip flop has a solid and sordid past. Just check out how the hot babes of Rome would nail designs into the soles of their sandals to leave designs in the sand that would direct potential suitors their way. Hmmm…. perhaps a GPS chip could accomplish the same without the odd nail in the foot? 

My favorites, pictured above, are called Fit Flops and come in a huge array of blinged out designs. They are supposed to tighten the tushy but I love the stylish tops and the excellent arch support. They have replaced the immortal white tennis shoe when traveling abroad and are the first thing I put on when not wearing respectable “work” shoes.

So, in honor of the flop, put away your pumps, stow your stilettos, file away your flats, escape from your espadrilles and grab your favorite pair. Better still, send me photo and we can show our support for the National Flip Flop Day and happy feet!
