A new pair of shoes聽can give聽us all the feels, from giddiness to confidence to the聽pain聽of聽breaking them聽in. But you don鈥檛 have to torture your tootsies聽to be trendy anymore. Foot Flops聽wants you to go footloose and fancy-free聽with聽heat-molded flip flops that form聽to聽your feet.


The Wyoming-based team behind Foot Flops developed their footwear line after聽experiencing the comfort and health advantages聽of heat聽insoles used for聽skiing and snowboarding. When they realized聽that happy and healthy feet聽shouldn鈥檛 be reserved for outdoor enthusiasts alone,聽they decided to create聽Foot Flops for use both聽on and聽off the slopes.


Foot Flops are orthotic and arch-supporting flip flops that harness patent-pending heat technology聽to聽mold to聽the unique shape of your feet. To activate the technology, stick them in your oven for five to seven minutes. Once warmed up, rock your feet in the center of the flip flop to create an optimal mold.聽In about fifteen minutes, you鈥檒l have a perfectly molded-to-you pair of flip flops.


Unlike traditional flip flops, Foot Flops can help聽decrease back pain and foot lengthening over time. And compared with many聽orthotic insoles,聽Foot Flops offer equivalent health benefits at a fraction of the cost. Foot Flops have even聽received a stamp of approval from聽renowned podiatrists, physical therapists and athletes.

Foot Flops are available in a variety of sizes and colors, from eye-popping pinstripes to sleek聽solids. Check out聽their Kickstarter campaign聽and聽pledge $30 or more to nab聽a pair of your very own.
