Cool Flip Flops

Cool Flip Flops

Everybody loves flip flops, especially during the summer. They are extremely comfortable, and are absolutely ideal for summer and spring days. Whenever it's warm, I love to throw on my cool flip flops and hit the town (or the beach!). Unlike most things you'd splurge on, cool flip flops are very affordable. Depending on where you get them, you can expect to pay $15-$40 for a nice pair of flip flops. Occasionally they will be a little cheaper or more expensive. I don't recommend buying the really cheap ones, and a $60+ pair of flip flops just seems silly to me. Then again, if you find a pair of name-brand flip flops that you like a lot, you should get them, regardless of the price. It's important to splurge every once in a while. Plus, a pair of shoes or flip flops is a pretty good investment, as they will most likely last a good amount of time. 

Online Availability

It used to be that you'd have to go to a brick-and-mortar store in order to buy a pair of flip flops. Today, with the Internet being what it is, it's incredibly easy to find a pair of cool flip flops. There are hundreds, probably thousands of sites that sell footwear, and each site has at least a decent selection of flip flops. Shopping online is the perfect way to get exactly what you want. And, since flip flops don't have to fit exactly like normal shoes, you can afford to buy them online without worrying about them not fitting right. 

The Perfect Summer Footwear

There’s nothing like a relaxing day outside in the sun wearing a pair of cool flip flops. Whether you’re barbequing or just hanging around outside, flip flops are very comfortable and help keep your feet cool. Since most of the heat in your body escapes through your head and feet, having your feet mostly uncovered is a great way to help cool down on those blisteringly hot days. To be honest, I’d rather not wear any shoes at all during those hot summer days, but unfortunately you have to wear something when going into stores and other civilized places, which is the main reason I break out the cool flip flops in the summer months.

A Brief History

Flip flops have exploded in popularity over the past 20 years or so. But that’s not to say they’re anything new – people have worn flip-flop-like shoes every since the 19th century. Over the years, the designs changed slightly, until in the 1950’s, Morris Yuck created the current design in New Zealand. The popularity of the shoes was pretty slim until the 60’s and 70’s, when people started to notice them and consider their purchase. In the 1990’s, their popularity continued to rise until just about everyone in America knew what flip flops were, and most people owned at least 1 pair. Nowadays, you can find cool flip flops in almost every store that sells footwear.
