After my cheap flip flops broke on me in public, I was traumatized and swore i would never wear flip flops again. Plus, a lot of them always hurt my feet after long periods of wear.
BUT, because sometimes it is just annoying to wear socks and tennis shoes, especially in hot weather, I decided that I need flip flops.
I saw these flip flops a while back but because of the price, I actually held back. To be honest, the most expensive pair of flip flops I ever bought were around $7, so the idea of paying more than $20 for a pair of flip flops were outrageous. But then again, it's a pair of Nike flip flops and that just makes a big difference. I own a few pairs of Nike shoes and they are super durable, so the trauma of them breaking in public somewhat lessened for me. Another thing is that they are SOOOOO SOFT. SOFT! It uses memory foam, so it adds on that extra cushion that my feet need. The bottom of the shoe is also really durable and strong, so i dont have to worry about it wearing any time soon.
Picture of the one i got. I believe this one is called volt pink. It was quite hard to find in my size.. Speaking of sizes, these flip flops only run in whole numbers. I'm actually a 9.5, but I got a 10 and it fits perfectly. I normally go half a size up for Nike shoes anyway, so it's not a problem for me.
They have many colors for this style of flip flops, but I loved this one the most. It just stood out to me. The picture simply does not do its justice.
Also note that this picture was taken about 2 months of so after wearing. It has started to get dirty though, and even though getting green for the sole was not exactly a perfect idea, i still love it.
Bottom of the shoe.
Heel of the shoe. As i have stated above, it is sturdy and strong.
Great shoe, I'm curious to know how long it will last for me. My last pair of Nike tennis shoes lasted 5+ years, and is still wearable, even though I have stopped wearing it already.
