The Ten Best Flip Flops

The Ten Best Flip Flops
Zori, Thongs, Jandals, Flip Flops – whatever you call them, they all spell summer comfort.
These comfy pieces of footwear have been cited throughout history on the happy soles of many ancient civilisations including the Egyptians, Greeks and the mighty Romans.
Despite this, flip flops as we know them today didn’t really burst into the mainstream scene until the 1950s, initial styles inspired by the Japanese version – the Zori. In the 1960s they received a splash of colour, and they were soon adopted into the Californian beach lifestyle.
But are they just for the beach? Or can they be worn to dinner too? While the jury is still out on that one, we at Surfdome think as long as the weather is warm why not?
Fast forward to 2013 and unlike the ancient versions you are spoilt for choice. We have one of the biggest ranges this summer with over 580 styles from hundreds of brands!
