The canvas material sounds like it would be rough to wear, but as you slip them on, they are quite comfortable. Non scratchy, and form fitting, Gumbies provides comfort for the entire footprint.
Gumbies follow the contour of the entire foot. You can see that the arch and sole are molded to provide support where its needed most. One thing I really love about the Gumbies Flip Flops are the thick cotton strap across the top of your foot. Most flip flops, to me, feel like they are about to fall off with one wrong step or if they catch on something. The thick strap makes my foot feel secure, and the piece between the toes never hurts, even after wearing them all day at the office (we have a laid back dress code where I work).
Gumbies has many stylish and fashionable styles to choose from. This turquoise style was my favorite out of the selection, but I also think the Purple Hibiscus is a fun style. Gumbies Islander Flip Flops are available for both men and women and can be purchased from their website or Amazon. Because you'll see the sizing in UK sizes on both websites, you'll need to refer to the sizing chart to find your U.S. size.
What makes these flip flops so different than the traditional flip flop, is the bottom of the shoe. It's made completely out of recycled tires! With precise placement of each piece of tire, it creates a strong and grippy tread. No more worrying about wearing flip flops over rough terrain or rocks, Gumbies can do it!
