FlipSlips: Does Not Refer To Gymnastic Faux Pas

While Esther Flatto designed these new foldable flats to make her bike commute comfier and more convenient, they’re great pretty much wherever society politely asks you to put on shoes.

FlipSlips

How comfortable are they? Excessively. FlipSlips have a sheepskin-lined memory foam insole for an absurd level of foot-pampering power. They also feature a reflective seam and reversible reflective strap for nocturnal travels, and they’ll fit in a purse with tons of room to spare.

Help crowdfund FlipSlips today and save up to 30%, plus get free shipping!

(Gents: We also have shoes for you: super-lightweight Tyvek high-tops in black and crystallized nebula.)
