Burn rubber while minding your carbon footprint with these grippy sandals made from recycled race car tires and bike tubes salvaged in California.

    Comments about RECYCLED RUBBER FLIP FLOPS:

    Extremely good quality. My husband is a carpenter and destroys every piece of clothing/shoes that he wears. I'm glad to say that I've FINALLY found a product that he will actually have serious difficulty destroying. He says they are comfy too. Might not be good for someone with flat feet (like me) b/c they have arch support - but this is a great buy.

        Comments about RECYCLED RUBBER FLIP FLOPS:

        I was really excited about this product. I received them as a father's day gift. You would think a product like this would last a long time, but the foot bed padding turns your feet black because they are made from tires. I had the product for less than a month and small pieces of the foot bed were coming off. I saw the writing on the wall and returned them. The lining of the rubber straps does not completely cover the rubber (recycled bike tube), so long blisters emerged along my feet. Loved the idea about race car tires and a recycled product, but not worth it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Great delivery and customer service. They refunded my money and were very understanding.

            I bought these for my husband for Valentine's Day. They are durable and nice-looking. Also, they are an excellent quick slip-on for him when he needs to run outside, go down to breakfast at a motel, or when he will play outside with the kids at the lake this summer. He is a former race-car driver who is concerned about the environment, so the materials the flip flops are made out of were a total plus!

                            I really like these flip flops but, for me, I needed to buy 2 pairs. My size felt too small, so order another pair 1 size up. My daughter got the 1st pair so all worked out wonderfuly. They are durable and feel like they will last forever, HUGE PRO! Right along with the fact that they are recycled. Love em!

                            great to slip into for around the house or for a casual look; they are as comfortable as any flip flop and so far seem durable. The size is all right lengthwise, but it is on the narrow side. I normally wear a medium width shoe and this is almost too narrow.
