Lulu Flip Flops with Stella Strap

Switchflops, created by Lindsay Phillips, is giving ten lucky Temptalia readers a pair of their very own pair of Switchflops (+ a strap) ($47 value). Switchflops are flip flops that allow you to change up the strap, so you can have lots of different looking flip flops without having to own a whole closet full of flip flops.

I asked Lindsay Phillips, the creator, about her inspiration behind the line:

“Who would have thought that a high school art project could be the start of a fashion footwear business? Switchflops evolved from a pair of ceramic sandals I created for a art design class. There was an amazing response by family and friends to these flip flops adorned by a variety of fun, Florida fare including sunglasses, palm trees and tropical fish. Everyone wanted to buy a pair and was disappointed to discover the shoes were not functional. I began designing flip flops with colorful straps and fanciful buttons. After stumbling on the concept of using Velcro to create an interchangeable strap, and applying for a patent, Switchflops were born! An unlimited choice of looks could be possible by simply changing out straps on a single pair of flip flops. A simple but revolutionary idea. I wish I had paid more attention in my Physics class. Cold fusion seems to have a lot of potential.” — Lindsay Phillips
