10/10/2010 Update: The winner of the Feelgoodz natural rubber flip flops is Tread Lightly [1].  Congratulations!

I need new flip flops. Seriously. I haven’t bought a new pair of shoes since I stopped buying new plastic three years ago, and this summer, I’ve been walking around on worn down foam Teva’s that look like this:

Any podiatrist worth his/her degree would be appalled.

So anyway, I needed new flip flops, and I remembered that Lisa from Condo Blues had worn a pair of natural rubber FeelGoodz [2] flip flops to the Blogher conference last year and loved them. Read her review of Feelgoodz [3] here. So I wrote to the company and asked for a pair to review on Fake Plastic Fish.  

The shoes were sent in a plain cardboard box without any additional packaging.

The flip flops come in all different colors, but I chose black for the sake of versatility. I’m not a big shoe collector, like many women are.

About Feelgoodz Flip Flops:

1) Made from 100% natural rubber. (If you are allergic to latex, you will not be able to wear these shoes.)
2) Biodegradable. According to the company, once they wear out, you could bury them in a hole in your backyard, and they would eventually biodegrade, unlike plastic foam flip flops.
3) Recycling program. If you’d rather not dig a hole in your yard, you can actually send back your flip flops to Feelgoodz for inclusion in the Soles4Soles recycling program [4].
4) Made in Thailand.
5) Naturally dyed.

The Giveaway

The Giveaway:  1 pair women’s size 7-9 black flip flops.  Why?  Because sadly, they don’t fit my crazy messed up wide, flat feet.  Compared to my Tevas, Feelgoodz are much narrower.  I would imagine they will fit the majority of feet just fine.  But if your feet are particularly wide like mine, they probably won’t.  Why not send a message to the company [5] asking for some wider sizes? 

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment below describing what you like about your feet.  I’m serious.  Even if you think you hate your feet, to enter, you have to find one thing you like.

Buy some Flip Flops

I realize it’s the end of the summer, but right now, Feelgoodz [2] is offering $5 off any online purchase if you use the coupon code CHANGE.
