All about Flip Flops: Would you wear them or not?
They call it flip flops, sandals, tsinelas, name it. Filipinos wear them for centuries now. From brands like Spartan and Islander, tsinelas has now evolved into a fashionable item. Hence the name “flip flops” was coined. Today, flip flops have become an ubiquitous footwear.
Teenagers and adults wear them… and even babies now have the chance to own a pair. In fact, they come in unique styles and colors. Flip flops are better known by the most common brand names such as Havaianas and Ipanema. And I know a lot of people who are a fan of the said brands. But some people do not really fancy wearing one. My bestfriend was even surprised to know that they have their own shops here, “All Flip Flops,” a mecca of all things Havaianas. They have shops in malls and the one in High Street is open until 11:00 pm. My bestfriend is a “New Yorker” now, so she’d rather wear shoes that would keep her feet warm. 🙂
Well, I used to hate flip flops too. Not that I hate them but I just didn’t like the idea of wearing it on malls or wherever. Things changed. I think Filipinos would still crave for a footwear that would make them feel comfortable. Something that we’ve known for the longest time. Only that they’re even better now (especially with a tag price like that).
How about you? Would you rather wear a flip flop or put on your stiletto at malls?
