Ah SOLE, bastion of orthopedically sound flip-flops! Defender of your foot health! Way back in 2010 we introduced you to the fact that the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) says flip-flops hurt our feet…and that SOLE is one of the few companies to make flips that are actually good for your feet.
Fast forward two years. SOLE is still at it, making very high-quality flips with their supportive, moldable, conforming footbeds. We had the chance to check out their Sport Flips this go-round, and I think that these may be some of our favorites so far. These flips are great after a workout, hike, or day at the office—or any time, really. “The metatarsal pad and wide platform allow your foot to expand and recover post-exercise,” SOLE says, and while you’re looking up the definition of “metatarsal,” let me just break it down: this means they’re good for you and comfortable.
I liked the “Sport” in the Sport Flips. Go ahead, get them wet. Move in them. Walk distances, take them on vacation. Wear them at the beach. We have yet to find a single environment where the Sport Flips weren’t at home—they even look darn good.
Some people report a longer break-in time for SOLE sandals than some of the foamy foot-killers you’re used to, but it’s time well spent—just bank on it. Wear them in; you won’t be disappointed. If you somehow are, you’ve got a 90 day satisfaction guarantee from SOLE. Oh, and you can even buy one of the models of previous years—all the way back to ’10—at a considerable discount. How does $21 for $70 sandals sound? Like a total Benosh kinda deal? We agree! Check out their site for details. So save your feet and get some SOLE at the same time and tell them Benosh sent you.
