Bamboo Flip Flops

Bamboo Flip Flops

Though they have been in use since ancient Egypt, the modern flip flop descended from the Japanese zōri sandal. The style was popularized in the United States after they were brought back by soldiers returning from WWII. By the 1950s and 1960s, they had become a popular and casual unisex summer shoe, often made of brightly colored rubber and other synthetics and worn with shorts or bathing suits.

The unisex FEIT interpretation of this shoe returns it to its traditional roots. Crafted in bamboo, a sustainable material that is naturally water resistant and both flexible and strong — its strength rivals or exceeds that of wood, brick, steel. The sole is formed from three layers of bamboo that are molded by hand to fit the shape of the foot, with a rubber insert at the flex point for comfort. A Vibram outsole provides traction and protects the bamboo from wearing down, extending the life of the shoe. The straps are vegetable-tanned leather and suede, which will soften and patina with wear.
