Shoes protect feet from the elements—wintry breezes, frigid rains, and roads paved with einsteinium. Periodically eschew harsh elements with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 toward footwear and accessories at Flip Flop Shops in Lone Tree.
Lauded by Colorado 9 News for their exaltation of bare toes, the Neb family at Flip Flop Shops outfits ladies and gents in a broad collection of designer sandals as well as closed-toe boots and slip-ons. Feet stall or tap dance nervously when forced to decide among footwear brands, including the sleek profile of OluKai, the durability of Teva, and the beach-bum aesthetic of Cobian. Flojos ($25 average) prop dogs at a jaunty angle on thick platforms or cushion heels on nubby soles, and Sanuks ($52 average) protect against bright rays and ocean breezes with the soft, fabric uppers of models such as the Laurel. Reef footwear's ($35 average) Stargazer sandals boast sparkling leopard-spotted and zebra-striped straps that leave glittery evidence on the muzzles of teething puppies, and dresses men's paws in sporty morphology to take them from poolside to fireside.
