Beach Flip Flops - cute, colorful, recyclable!

FASHIONKim & ChloeComment

Unless you are lucky enough to live at the beach and enjoy beach fashion year round It's about that time of year for most of us to break out the spring and summer shoes... and that means beach flip flops! ? We were looking for something new this year. We've had our Havaina flip flops for years and really wanted something new. We found Planet Flops and loved everything about them. ? They are based in? Beverly Hills, CA, and make super- comfy beach flip-flops from natural rubber, which makes them even more cushiony and flexible than regular flip-flops.

Dr. Sylvie, a Beverly Hills podiatrist, a self-proclaimed "flip-flop aficionado", created Planet Flops after searching the globe for the most comfortable and eco-friendly flip-flops. She started making them for her clients, and then decided to start selling them throughout the U.S. Lucky for us!

Planet Flops are made of remarkably soft, yet durable natural Brazilian rubber. They are made of natural rubber, as opposed to synthetic rubber, because the rubber actually comes from the rubber tree (Hevea Brasiliensis) by harmlessly "tapping" into the tree to remove a milky sap from the bark which doesn't affect the health of the tree.

But we are most impressed with how comfortable they are and how cute! Planet Flops have an artist's palette of colors, designs and styles from which to choose. ? Our only suggestion is that when you select a pair, choose a size larger than you normally wear since they tend to run a bit small. Planet Flops have our top 3 requirements in beach flip flops: comfort, color and fashion!
