Flip flops are so tempting for summer. They’re lightweight, easy to pack, and slip on in a second. Unfortunately, they’re pretty terrible for your feet–unless you get a pair of Fleeps, sandals that have an adjustable cross-ankle strap for support, as well as a shock-absorbent sole. Even better: ten percent of every pair sold goes towards a women’s education non-profit.
Price and Where to Buy Fleeps: $38 on Amazon and on Fleeps’ website.
How Fleeps Rate:
- Usefulness: 10/10. Casual flip flops are the best, unless you want to actually walk more than a few feet in them. The Fleeps offer support and shock-absorbing, and have a smooth-finished toe post to prevent irritation.
Value: 6/10. These are obviously more expensive than a dollar store flip flop, however, the performance polymer soles (like you’d find in sneakers) and ankle support make it worth it. Also, you’re donating to a worthy charity by buying these.
Cool Factor: 10/10. The Fleeps are unique and very stylish, plus, they offer customization color combinations.
Final Verdict: If you love flip flops for the summer, but want to give your feet some TLC, the Fleeps will be your new sandal staple.
