Top 10 reasons to ditch the thongs this Summer…


Presenting the highly contentious debate of sandals versus ‘thongs’… or flip flops, jandals, slaps, slides or any other nickname you have for those practical rubber flat-soled bad boys we all have hiding in our wardrobe for a scorching Summer’s day.
Here are the top 10 reasons why Alohas sandals trump thongs: 
  1.  Versatility: Gone are the days of being rejected from the local pub because you’re underdressed. Alohas Sandals, whilst practical, are totally acceptable for the beach, the streets and yes even your local.
  2. Say goodbye to broken straps. Ever had your flip flop strap break mid step? Disaster.
  3. Sustainability: whilst some thongs on the market are made from polyurethane, the Alohas sandals are made from recycled car tires so you’re doing your bit for the environment in wearing Alohas.
  4. Quality and comfort: Quality leather makes these shoes long lasting and easy on the soles of your feet.
  5. History rich: Whilst we can appreciate the history of the flip flop dating back to ancient Egyptian times, Alohas Sandals too have their historic roots. How is this relevant you ask? It means they’ve been trialled and tested.
  6. No name confusion: Nobody is going to confuse the name of your footwear with a type of bikini brief.
  7. Socks and sandals? For you hipsters out there, feel free to pair your Alohas with socks. We know you’re guilty of trying to wedge your socks in between the T-bar strap of your thongs. Fear no more.
  8. Toe scrunching: Hey it’s a legitimate concern. We’ve all suffered from scrunched toes in an attempt to keep our thongs from falling off in absence of an ankle strap. Alohas sandals have a strap, which can be worn over or behind the ankle, keeping them firm on your feet!
  9. For that matter, say goodbye to toe chafe too…need I say more?
  10. Style: Take a good hard look at Alohas Sandals. The proof is in the pudding. They’re a good-looking shoe ranging in colour from white to turquoise to metallic silver… and many more.
With this in mind, it may be time to say goodbye to your rubber friends, and Aloha to a more versatile, sustainable and fashionable shoe.
