It is so warm today, I think I’m ready for some new, Flip Flops!
Creative, entrepreneurial Lindsay Phillips created her first pair of flip-flops as a high school art project. Her idea was to use Velcro to create not just one set of decorated straps for her flip flops, but practically an endless wardrobe of different ones. The idea was unique enough to patent it. When a patent for her clever idea was granted in 2004 and Lindsay joined forces with her mother, Liz, to start her SwitchFlops company.
What’s so unique about Switch Flops is that for $32.00 to $42 (and $10.00 for additional pairs of straps) you can have one pair of shoes that can have a totally different look every time you step out in them.
The original Switch-Flop straps are lined in velcro. Simply pull off one strap, stick on another. and stick on another one of dozens of cute fabric designs. There are three different shoe styles, four different colors, and more than 60 different straps to choose from. Choose a wedges, flats, and/or a kitten heel. If you love them, you can even get them in kiddie-sizes for your children.
