Why Flip Flops Define Summer

July 01, 2019

What do you think of when you see a pair of flip flops? Surely, it’s not the drudgery of winter or even spending long days at work. Your thoughts probably turn instead to spending time on the beach in classic flip flops without a care in the world. There’s just something about the freedom of wearing flip flops that goes along with the freedom of summer. Forget about laced-up shoes that make your feet feel trapped and require you to wear socks and settle into flip-flop summer sandals.

Show Off Your Well-Formed Feet and Perfectly Manicured Toes

It would be a shame to hide your feet inside of shoes all day when you work so hard to keep them attractive. Just as you have earned the right to show off your bikini body or your six-pack abs, don’t be shy about wearing vacation flip flops. They are the perfect compliment to an attractive summer outfit. If you take the time to paint and file your toenails, wearing flip flops lets you share your creativity with everyone. Go ahead and get creative with the colors, especially with Independence Day coming up. What could be more fun than red, white, and blue painted toenails?

Comfort and Convenience No Other Shoe Can Match

Whether you live in or frequently visit a warm climate, it won’t take you long to notice that flip flops are the footwear of choice. One popular sentiment that people express is that flip flops are the most comfortable shoes they have ever owned. They are also completely hassle-free. You just step into them when you’re headed outdoors and that’s it. No sitting down to tie your shoelaces or finding matching socks when flip flops are a part of your daily apparel. For many living in warmer climates, flip flops have become such an accepted and beloved part of the culture that people wear them everywhere.

Versatile Enough to Wear with Any Type of Outfit

Pulled a long, flowing cotton dress from your closet? How about a pair of cut-off shorts from the bottom of your clothes drawer? Either one will work perfectly well with a pair of comfy flip flops. Flip flops aren’t even off-limits while attending a wedding on the beach. In fact, the bride and groom are likely to be wearing them as well. Flip flops just make sense when you don’t want to miss parts of the wedding emptying sand from your shoes.

Perfect Footwear for the Beach

Are you spending a lot of time at the cabin, beach, or lake this summer? Remember that flip flops travel quite well. They won’t stay wet for long after you walk into the water and they don’t trap sand the way that other types of shoes sometimes do. Although flip flops are a fun and more casual look than tennis shoes or the shoes you wear to work, they protect your feet from hot sand, glass, rocks, and anything else on the beach or ground that could cause foot damage. They may be more lightweight but flip flops are just as durable as any other type of shoe.

Flips Flops Are Easy to Carry Along for Those Times You Must Wear Other Shoes

If your job is to serve ice cream cones to kids on the beach, your boss probably won’t mind too much if you show up to work in flip flops every day. Your boss in a professional office setting, however, might frown upon you wearing flip flops to work. You gotta do what you gotta do to earn a living, but that doesn’t mean you can't slip into your flip flops when going for a walk or running errands over your lunch hour.

You can even keep your flip flops in your work bag to slip into as soon as you have walked through the office door at the end of the day. Of course, this idea may only work during the summer depending on your climate.

Your Feet Need to Breathe Too!

Your feet are bound to get sweaty when they’re stuck inside of shoes and socks all day. Unfortunately, this can lead to your feet emitting some unpleasant and maybe even offensive odors. Wearing flip flops, on the other hand, allows your feet to breathe so pooled-up sweat never becomes a problem. Additionally, wearing flip flops throughout the summer can help to prevent toenail fungus and athlete’s foot.

You never want to visit a swimming pool without wearing a pair of flip flops. Walking barefoot on the pavement is just asking to pick up a nasty fungus that can quickly turn into an infection. Moist and hot environments make ideal breeding grounds for fungi. You may want to invest in more than one pair of flip flops to have available for locker rooms, the sauna, or steam room. If someone in your household is unfortunate enough to pick up a foot fungus, wearing a pair of flip flops in the shower at home can prevent him or her from spreading the unwanted condition to others.

Ready for Your Flip Flop Tour This Summer?

As you’re busy making your travel plans this summer, you might think that one pair of flip flops is no different than the next. We at Savana Sandals are happy to let you know that just isn’t true. Not only do we offer flip flops for men, flip flops for women, and free shipping on all orders within the United States, we create our unique summer and warm weather footwear from sustainable materials such as recyclable rubber tires.

However, just because your flip flops lived a previous life as a tire somewhere in the world doesn’t mean they are of lesser quality. We would never stand for such a thing at Savana Sandals. How many other casual footwear companies can honestly state they spend over one year working with manufacturers to get the durability and comfort of every pair of flip flops jut right? Our guess is not too many. Our company is different and so are our shoes. We can’t wait for you to discover the difference when you try them for yourself.
