Back in high school in the late 80’s and early 90’s, I wore Flojos sandals almost daily. The exact pair is shown below. I wore them to school, with socks (LOL, I know!), to the beach, and around town during the Spring, Summer, and Fall. They are definitely a California footwear staple!
Still to this day, I’m a sandal wearer, primarily flip flops! I wear them all the time and truly wear out each pair I own. Recently on Twitter, I came across the company and had flashbacks to walking down the Esplanade in Capitola, CA with my Flojos on and seeing them for sale in all the surf shops!
Flojos, recognized as one of the top sandal manufacturers in the world, is a name synonymous with the active, California beach lifestyle. Flojos (pronounced flo-hos, meaning “kick back” in Spanish) specializes in beach, fashion and sport sandals for women, men and children, with a focus on comfort, style and affordable prices.
Flojos established itself as a force in the U.S. sandal arena in 1979, with the introduction of the original Flojos, a popular rubber criss-cross sandal. The original Flojos style was borrowed from a traditional design from the Mexican culture, a style that has been a favorite among fisherman, surfers and beachcombers since the 1940’s. Recently, the Original Flojos and other Flojos styles alike have been making resurgence, showing up on beaches as well as city streets.
You don’t have to live by the beach to enjoy a good, comfortable, stylish sandal, just check out Flojos online and you can find the perfect shoe for the Spring and upcoming Summer season. Priced so inexpensively, you can buy two or 3 to match your trendy wardrobe.
My Take: I recently received the Meadow style flip-flop and they are fabulous. Completely comfortable with a smooth sueded feel to the whole shoe, I am impressed by the arch support added to the center! Most flip flops, while not a heel, are flat and often leave your feet aching after a long day. These have just enough support that I wore them over the course of a weekend and they truly feel like a slipper, plus they are thin and not heavy when you walk! The added fashionable print just adds the right amount of femininity to the shoe.
I was sent a pair of Flojos to facilitate this review. The experience is my tried-and-true opinion and was not influenced by any source.
