I wear so much white and black that it really would have been a waste of a perfectly great flip flop to get any other color, but boy, was I sure tempted! I did find out that they made my flip flop (well, all of them in fact) in Brazil from the highest quality of rubber. Don't they look comfy:
I also noticed that they don't make that flip floppy noise while walking down hallways or any other surface that causes them to do that. It is like walking on a plush carpet (for me away) and for that I am grateful. I have had some really painful stories I could tell you about with shoes and even surprisingly, slippers! I also have Fibromyalgia so when I find something that works, I usually end up getting several more pairs. I will give these a few more weeks of wear around the house and don't be surprised if all goes well, I may have to get some of those really nice colors I so admire, like the pink/chocolate ones and the plum & petal ones or even the Chocolate Blueberry ones!
They have flops for men and for kids so the whole family can join in on getting a great pair so spring/summer flip flops depending on where you live. Here in Georgia, we have such diverse weather that one day we can wear sandals and the next it is boot time! Really, it is a major headache not knowing what you will be wearing from one day to the next, but I can't complain. I really do love it here and would not think about moving unless it was a really exotic beautiful take your breath away kind of place.
I did find one really interesting fact about Planet Flops and that is that for every flip flop they sell they buy and plant a tree! also found out that their rubber is recyclable and made with 100% rubber. They have a $5 flat rate shipping price and if you get 4 pairs of shoes, then shipping is free! You should see all the places that they are turning up at! Check out their Press section to see who all is talking about them.
Now I know you are going to think I am a little dumb but I did not know there was such a thing as a rubber tree in Brazil and that is where they get the rubber to make these wonderful, soft and most comfortable flip flops I have worn in a long time! You will get a lot of interesting facts from their FAQ section, that is where I found out about the rubber tree!
Here is what I found out about how it all began:
Planet Flops®, based in Beverly Hills, CA, offers the most comfortable flip-flops available because they are made with natural rubber. Try them and find out for yourself what makes Planet Flops so amazingly comfy!Connect with Planet Flops by several options:
Dr. Sylvie, a Beverly Hills podiatrist, founder of Dr. ShoeMom and flip-flop aficionado, created Planet Flops after searching the globe for the most comfortable and eco-friendly flip-flops. Planet Flops are made in beautiful Brazil with remarkably soft yet durable natural Brazilian rubber.
After providing Planet Flops to her exclusive clientele and hearing rave reviews, Dr. Sylvie decided to make them available throughout the United States.
Natural rubber, as opposed to synthetic rubber, comes from the rubber tree (Hevea Brasiliensis). The harvesting of natural rubber occurs by harmlessly "tapping" into the tree to remove a milky sap from the bark. This does not affect the health of the tree.
In addition to their natural rubber construction, which provides a firm but comfortable platform, Planet Flops come in a dazzling array of colors, designs and styles. With names like Chocolate Strawberry, Licorice, and Cotton Candy, to name a few, Planet Flops are a must-have fashion item that offer style, distinction and comfort in one superior product. These are the most comfortable, flexible and fashionable summer footwear you can own.
