Flip flops are ubiquitous on the feet of pedestrians in the summer. The lightweight summer shoe is popular with both men and women of all ages. While the rubber flip flops that are most common today have been around since the 1960s, thong-style sandals date back as far as ancient Egypt. The current variety is derived from Japanese sandals called zōri, which were brought to the United States after World War II.
Flip flops remain a favorite accessory, especially among young people. Here at ErosWholesale.com, we carry sandals in dozens of different styles. Here are five reasons why you should keep flip flops in stock this season:
- Flip flops are like potato chips — you can’t have just one. Most people have more than one pair of sandals, and they may even buy one or more new pairs each season. Because flip flops come in so many colors and styles, and they are relatively inexpensive, many people amass a small collection, allowing them to have something to match every item in their summer wardrobe.
- They’re a must if your store is near the shore. Forgetful beach-goers often miss packing something. Chances are, you’ll see more than a few people over the course of the summer who forgot to bring their sandals with them. Be prepared by having at least a small supply of sandals on hand.
- Everyone needs flip flops for the pool. Even if your store isn’t anywhere near the shore, there are likely quite a few swimming pools in your area. Flip flops are the ideal poolside footwear since they can easily be slipped off and on, and they won’t be ruined even if they get wet.
- People will continue to buy sandals all summer long. Some people like to buy flip flops for special occasions, like a Fourth of July cookout or Labor Day party. Not only do we carry seasonal sandals with tropical and Americana patterns, but we also have highly decorative sandals which people can wear for more formal events.
- Flip flops don’t go out of style. The standard flip flop has remained relatively unchanged for decades. People love how easy they are to wear, and how well they can go with just about anything.
