When You Live In The Sandals Year Round It Has to Be In Gumbies!

Review by: Ria

I LIVE in sandals year-round so was thrilled when my mom had me review a pair of Gumbies Islander Flip Flops for her blog ! The flip flops come in a few different styles for men or women and they make them in some amazingly bright colors and prints. (They also have the more muted blacks and tans if you are not into fun, look-at-me shoes!) They had such gorgeous designs of turtles, flamingos or palm trees that it was difficult to finally decide on the "Pink Hibiscus "as my favorite color. 

I found the flip flop to be lightweight, snug fitting and very comfortable for walking in. The cloth strap and toe post are made of a heavy but soft (recycled!) cotton and the material seems quite durable. I love the construction of the flip flop sole, which felt a little stiffer than I was used to but after wearing them a few times, I have grown to love them! Their unique bottom design is made out of recycled rubber and jute fibers. Chunky rubber treads give them great traction that I can't wait to test out on our always-slippery sailboat deck.  

As a scuba diver and after living on an island, I see on a daily basis all the plastics and trash that end up in our oceans and on our beaches. I love when I can support a company that is eco-friendly and tries to do their part for our planet while making a great product. Gumbies says on their packaging (also recycled) that they believe these will be the most comfortable shoes that you will ever own; I totally agree and will be buying myself another pair in a different color very soon!
