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 flip flops to the Blogher conference last year and loved them. So I wrote to the company and asked for a pair to review on Fake Plastic Fish.
(Disclosure: If you purchase Feelgoodz flip flops via this link, I earn a small commission to support my plastic-free mission.)
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) Made in Thailand.
4) Naturally dyed.
