Trash Your Socks
There is no time like the present to spring clean your closet; trash your socks and box your boots. Be sure to keep a few pumps for professional use, sensible stilettos for after-hour events, and practical footwear for athletic and working comfort.
When choosing your spring shoe collection to include flip flops and sandals, think airy and easy to slip on. Obviously, this type of shoe does not require socks. We suggest donating your nice and warm foot-gloves (our impromptu name for socks) to a local charity or safe-house. Throw in a few pairs of shoes with additional items of clothing you have not worn in at least six months. This will afford you the opportunity to equip someone in need and minimize personal clutter simultaneously. Spreading goodwill will add a spring to your step, and potentially meet a void in a someone’s life.
Where Did The Name, Flip Flop, Originate?
From beaches to everyday life, the Flip Flop is one of the most inexpensive, accessible and lightweight footwear options for men and women. This between-the-toes phenomenon was originally brought to the United States after World War II when those serving our country brought flip flops home from Japan. The origination of the name, flip-flop, earned its definition by the sound following each step taken when wearing; literally making the sound, “flip-flop”. Australians refer to flip-flops as Thongs, not to be confused with ladies exotic underwear in the United States. South Africa goes by the name, Plakkies. Regardless of what these fun and flirty shoes are called, we absolutely love it when naked toes spark spring sassiness in the air!
Spring into Beautiful
The most beautiful compliment to flip flops or sandals is sexy feet!
- Beautify your feet with a fresh pedicure featuring a soft watercolor (trending, 2018).
- A French pedicure or nude color is always appropriate (wear your personality).
- Feeling exceptionally sassy? Step out in bling with mirrored effect toenail polish.
