Flip flops aren't what they used to be - and
they aren't just for kids and men anymore either. Womens flipflops have come a
very long way in recent years. Womens flipflops are available in a variety of styles, colors and designs, and they have become a
huge part of many women's wardrobes.
Flip flops are even commonly seen in the work place these days! The designs of flip flops have become so flattering that they are now suitable to wear with dresses, skirts, slacks, and jeans. Of course, flip flops and shorts will always go well together! Flip flops come in a wide variety of styles and designs. Some have heels, and some are flat. Some have the traditional rubberized soles, while others are made of leather, wood, plastic, and a huge variety of other types of materials. When it comes to flip flops, anything goes, and all things are possible!
Flip flops are very flattering when worn with Capri style pants. In fact, it seems that the Capri style pants are what made flip flops more attractive to women. Designers were forced to sit up and take notice. They finally realized that women will not be content with the same old - ugly - style flip flops that were available for years in a one-size, one-style fits all fashion. Today, women want their footwear - even their flip flops - to be fashionable and stylish - and designers have answered that demand!
Many famous designers now have flip flop designs out on the market, and there are shoe companies that specialize only in flip flop sandals. Because each woman has an intricate style of her own, many of them even decorate their flip flops to make them even more stylish and unique.
Flip flops are not as cheap as they once were either. Of course, you can still find the old style of flip flops and purchase a pair of those for less than three bucks, but the more stylish - cute - flip flops cost quite a bit more. Some women even pay upwards of $100 for a pair of flip flops - and flip flops by famous designers go even higher!
Aside from the overall appearance of the shoe, many flip flop designers have taken more of an interest in comfort and support when it comes to flip flop designs as well. There are many styles of flip flops on the market today that feature arch support. The thong that goes between the toes is often made of the softest leather to keep the material from rubbing blisters between the toes as well. Comfort, support, fit, style, and design are all factors when new flip flops are made today!
Fit is something that was never important in the past when it came to flip flops. Women had a choice between small, medium, large, and in some instances, even extra large. Today, quality flip flops have actual shoe sizes so that women can get a better - more comfortable fit. This is revolutionary in the flip flop world - kids and men still have to settle for small, medium, large, and extra large in most cases, and their choices are very limited when it comes to flip flops.
Flip flops are seen everywhere you look - everyday. Women even wear flip flops in the winter. They are easy to slid into to step outside, or even to make a quick trip next door or to the store. Many women even use flip flops as substitutes for house slippers - because they are comfortable, and they serve the purpose without making a woman's feet too warm.
We expect the flip flop to evolve even more in the future. The renewed interest that women have shown in these types of shoes will ultimately drive designers and manufacturers to give women even more of what they want - before the competition does. We definitely haven't seen the last changes in womens flipflops! Keep an eye on the flip flop section at your favorite shoe store to see what the designers have in mind for us next!
