“Can you run when you wear flip-flops?”
For most of us, not so much. But when Iguaneye® asks that question, the answer for most of us would be – yes.
That’s because the flip-flops Iguaneye® makes aren’t these….
Some of the difference, you can see just by looking. These flip flops wrap around your heel and your big toe, which keeps them on your feet – even when you run.
And some of the difference, is not so obvious. Like the flexible sole, made up of cork, and a leather coating, and a hypoallergenic, recyclable elastomer micro-net (which is what makes the sole flexible and foot-fitting). In this case, that elastomer means an elastic plastic (we like that rhyme too)…built, like most plastics, on a foundation of petrochemical building blocks.
The shoe also has vents and channels – to let in air and move it about – so your foot doesn’t get all sweaty and your shoe doesn’t get all stinky.
And by all accounts, they just feel good to wear (and they stay on your feet). Pepper-red (that’s the one up above), Russian-violet, Hot-pink – they’re fun to look at too. You can look at them for yourself, at Iguaneye.
Oh, and next up – a 3D-printed version of the shoe (including a super-lightweight edition made with EVA foam, which in turn is made from the petrochemical, ethylene). So stick around.
