simple-flipees.jpgFlip-flops may seem frivolous as footwear goes, but they are an essential part of your summer wardrobe, often worn day in day out and put through a lot of punishment in our longer, warmer summers. At first glance they're all much of a muchness, but don't be fooled: you can strike gold when you find the right pair for you. Great flip flops are robust, stylish and above all, comfy, so it's definitely worth shopping around.

Simple Shoes tick all of those boxes and more with their 'Flippees' range. Made from recycled materials from post-consumer waste, they are seriously eco-friendly, and have been designed to offer maximum support and comfort, whether you're wearing them for grocery shopping or heavy duty festival-going in a dusty field. 

Check out Simple's site for more variations on the Flippee theme, including one with micro-perforations in the strap for supreme moisture control and another with a cute rainbow strap made from recycled PET. We love what Simple are doing with recycled materials at the moment, and if you're planning on venturing out in the elements for longer can strongly recommend their fabulous Take on Hi Top boots which are almost as waterproof as wellies.
