As a huge fan of cute and practical shoes, I’d like to break some not-so-newsy news to you: Flip-flops are perennials. They may seem like they’re warm weather–specific, but they’re not. Here’s why:

  • Flip-flops are great for dorm life—aka sharing bathrooms with roomies (which can sometimes be icky).
  • They are a must for the gym! There are so many microbial germies lingering in gym showers that you don’t wanna take any chances with bare feet—trust me!
  • You can rock ’em while you paint your lovely toenails and still be able to walk around your house without worrying about smudges, smears, and other naily mishaps.
  • You’ll be SO stoked you have these when it does get warmer—you won’t have to deal with shopping with the hordes of flip-flop fanatics come spring. 😉

Check out these ridiculously cute flippies that we’re giving away this week:
