It was Benjamin Franklin who famously quipped, "Opposable thumbs, shoes, and cookies for breakfast are the only things separating us from the animals." Tie some dignity to your feet with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of flip-flops and footwear at Flip Flop Shops.
A symphony of rubbery soles thwacks against the tiles at Governor's Square Mall, where Flip Flop Shop owner Jason Swinford stocks his boutique's shelves with more than 150 styles of foot-hugging sandals and shoes. Aside from dazzling eyes in an array of colors, Reef Phantoms ($32.99) protect women's heels as they strut across shell-strewn beaches and snake-strewn Gorgon hair salons. Sanuk Kick Start sandals ($19.99) brand a handsome Y-shaped tan line upon men’s metatarsi, and toes wiggle in style with a pair of comfortable Yoga Mat flip-flops ($29).
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Flip Flop Shops a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.
Flip Flop Shops
Born out of co-founders Todd Giatrelis's and Sarah Towne's frustration at hunting for a sandal shop amid the glitz of the Vegas strip, Flip Flop Shops helps customers free their toes with a one-stop boutique for comfortable sandals and shoes, quickly expanding across the nation with more than 30 locations. Owner Jason Swinford proudly strides his size 12 sandaled feet across the floor of his Governor's Square Mall shop, uniting visitors with stylish strapped footwear and sneakers from brands such as Flojos, O'Neill, Quiksilver, and Vans. Every aspect of the store is cultivated to convey a laid-back, beachy atmosphere, with a scent of suntan oil gracing the air, lively music playing in the background, and a distinct taste of salt on every surface.
