Switch Flops Straps - Endless Possibilities With Multiple Interchangeable Straps

Updated on October 21, 2015

Switch Flops Straps

It's summertime in most part of the country, and one thing that is never out of season is our love for flip flops. Whether it's wearing it around the house, or the dorm, to the store, or on a quick errand, flip flops continues to be that easy wear and is also becoming more of a fashion statement and a vital part of a woman's wardrobe.

Flip Flop Fashion

Every year, women spend a lot of money on an never ending supply of flip flops. A friend of mine always look forward to the Old Navy summer flip flop sale so that she could get a pair of every color available, not just for herself, but also for her daughter.

Fashion flip flops that are adorned with colorful ribbons and accessories are also becoming very popular, not just among women, but also among teens. Little wonder then why many designers and retailers are coming out with different designs and styles of flip flops. One of such designers and retailer is Lindsay Phillips.

Featured recently on Good Morning America, Lindsay Phillips is the brain and founding force behind Switch Flops. Lindsay began designing flops with colorful straps after being involved in a high school art project where she had to design a ceramic flip flops with so many colorful accessories attached to it. It was everyone's favorite. She then took the idea and applied it to real flip flops. She made the flip flops not only colorful, but functional. Her idea went mainstream, and thus, Switch Flops was born.

What Are Switch Flops?

The difference between an ordinary flip flop and switch flops is that with a switch flop, you have endless possibilities. Lindsey Phillips realized that by using hook-and-loop fasteners she could create one shoe with many straps. So imagine a flip flop strap with an extra layer strap that can be removed and interchanged with another set of straps. A different color straps, with its own unique design, each adorned with buttons and gems giving you the option of multiple looks and endless possibilities. That's the Switch flops difference.

This idea has also been applied to dressy slip-on and slippers. I must say that the first time I heard about this sort of thing was on an ABC show, Shark Tank. The idea of interchanging the top portion of a slipper, slip-on, wedge and platform sandal is very appealing to a lot of women, especially to us shoe lovers.

A friend of mine is in the habit of buying multiple pairs (colors) of the same shoe. The reason being that it's hard to find what she likes in terms of size and comfort. This practice of hers can sometimes mean paying too much for shoes.

So, for my friend, being able to get a different look each time at a fraction of what it would have cost to have multiples of flip flops, platforms or sandals is really catching. You buy one or two pairs and multiple top straps and just switch them, coordinating your slippers, sandals, wedges, or platforms with your other fashion accessories. If it cuts cost, it makes sense.
