I am in the midst of end of the school year craziness — exams, grades, packing up, awards assemblies, and commencement. Busy time for all teachers! As this is my last year being an official teacher (embracing the change and BEING BOLD!), I am even more swamped with deadlines, boxes, and goodbye. So instead of my normal blog post, Ali to the rescue! Thank you, Contributing Editor!
Have you ever dreamed of a Flip Flop – Clog hybrid? If so, FLOGGS may be the shoes for you. FLOGG is a revolutionary new category of footwear -inspired by the laid back California lifestyle and invented for all women who want to feel good and look fantastic without sacrificing design for comfort.
In the 1970’s the womens’ liberation movement was born. The quest for equality in society made women also yearn for freedom of expression in their clothing. The Europeans influenced American fashion with sexualized glamour, style icons Jane Birkin, Bianca Jagger, Brigit Bardot & Farrah Fawcett made miniskirts and platforms popular silhouettes that keep re-appearing on today modern catwalks.
I love the Cassie:
Now with FLOGG, retro classic shapes are made more comfortable with the flip flop EVA component. The cushioned material (ethylene vinyl acetate, or EVA) lays on top of the sturdy natural wood platform. There’s also built in arch support inside of the shoe!
The cushion makes them a great choice for walking around the city or hanging at the beach. I’m not a fan of being held back by my footwear, but I’m also unwilling to wear running shoes to get around. For that reason, FLOGGS are an awesome walking companion.
