The flip flops from ancient Egypt to the present day
Believe it or not, this “supertrendy” sandal was worn by the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. And they were all the rage. That’s right: thong sandals were invented about 3,500 years ago. These shoes were considered a status symbol and owned only by the rich and the priests, and first of all the pharaohs and their families. Luckily times have changed and we can all wear them.

The flip flop – this is the name by which flip flops are known all over the world – the most popular are made of plastic material: a low and flexible sole, a flat footbed and a Y-shaped “string” at the top. There is no individual in the world who has not worn this classic model of flip-flops at least once in their life to go to the beach or take a dip in the pool.
Bad love “infra” as we now call them all amicably, they certainly do not stop at the basic rubber versions. The most popular models are those in leather with ankle laces but in recent years “sparkling” variations have also emerged on the theme where the sole has risen and strengthened and the materials market has opened up to sponge, feathers and fur. All, of course, in the most flamboyant and pop shades. And then there are the jewel flip flops. The ones you wear and you feel in a fairytale. Those that you can play down with a pair of jeans or that you can wear to a gala dinner.
THEnfradito: how to choose the right model
If you have to buy a pair of flip-flops, it is right that you choose them based on the use you have to make of them. In fact, everything depends on when you have to use them and on what occasion.
If the purpose is to purchase informal slippers for the home then it is good to opt for flip-flops in rubber, plastic or cork with a sole at least 3 centimeters high. And, if you are one of those who are always on the move, it is good to choose a medium-high quality product, comfortable and non-slip.
If what you need is cslippers to use on the beach, in the pool or maybe for a shower in the gymthen it is good to orient yourself on the more classic model of flip-flops: the one with the low sole because it is not necessary to have special supports for the feet and back.
If you feel like buying a pair of flip flops that accompany you on different occasions and that you can wear throughout the day, it is advisable to opt for quality materials that ensure the right breathability and do not let the foot sweat, and protect it from any irritation due to rubbing. And maybe choose those with an additional mid-foot strap or ankle strap: this way your feet will have greater support and will remain stationary even while walking, avoiding unnecessary discomfort.
Comfort, informality and freshness are just some of the advantages that these shoes are able to give you, but don’t forget to pamper your feet with pedicures, creams and nail polishes for end-proof flip flops!
