Picking the perfect flip flops
There aren’t any perfect flip flops for everyone. Slippers are all unique, and all require different materials to give us the most comfort. Some like leather, some like rubber etc. When buying flip flops in Hawaii you have a great variety to choose from.
Things to look out for when buying the right Flip Flops
Every type of material used has a different feel. Rubber is good for the beach, because it is waterproof. Leather is more high end and we recommend to not get them wet in salt water.
The sole or base of flip flops can be made from a range of materials ranging from wood to rubber. Figuring out what’s most comfortable for you helps you make a better decision.
- Wood: Although this type of flip flops is more expensive, they serve the same purpose. They are made out of special woods such as cork, high-quality Vinyl, or a combination of other raw materials.
- Rubber: this version is usually inexpensive. They are made of polyurethane, plastic foam, or cheap rubber. Some other companies use recycled tires in an effort to protect the environment.
Note: It is important you understand which materials you are more comfortable using.
Flip Flop Design
Flip flops vary in designs. Its colors and designs make them perfect for specific or universal purposes. For example, you can wear expensive leather flip flops for evening dinners and rubber or nylon slippers to the pool. There are different designs for men, women and of course kids.
