Sustainable flip flops
Our eco-friendly flip flops are made with the environment in mind and offer a sustainable version to one of the biggest pollutants out there.
On the average 3 billion pairs of flip flops are bought worldwide every year and many of them are made from harmful materials that end up on our beaches and in our waters.
Our flip flops are made as green as possible and consist mainly of cork.
The upper layer is cork leather (fabric), which is dyed with plant based colourants. All glue used is water based.
The sole is made from a layer of spongy cork and the bottom layer is 70% cork granules mixed with 30% rubber for that extra durability.
Your new flip flops will take a couple of days to shape around your foot. The spongy layer of cork will shape under your footsole while you wear them. It is normal for the flop flops to feel a bit hard at first. They will gradually loosen up.
The cork leather will soften between your toes in no time, so even people that usually dislike a sling type of flip flops have returned a positive feedback and find the flip flops comfortable to wear.
Cork has amazing properties, which makes it an ideal material for flip flops.
It is naturally mould and mildew resistant, as well as waterproof. Cork also naturally repels dust and fire.
Being about four times lighter than water, due to its numerous pores, cork floats in water.
As well as all mentioned above, cork is sustainable as it comes from a renewable source. Harvesting cork is considered one of the most eco-friendly methods in the world as the tree is never cut down and the bark is stripped by hand.
Can these be used in a wet environment?
Yes, you can use your flip flops in wet places including showers. They are super sturdy-tried and tested by us!
Are they good for walking on any surface?
Yes, you can wear them anywhere you'd wear any pair of flip flops. Hiking in them would be difficult,but not impossible!
Please refer to the size chart before purchasing.
To ensure best fit we recommend that you measure your foot sole before selecting a size.
Love my new cork flip flops! They do take some breaking in (be patient!) — but they are totally worth it. Super comfy and stylish.
Delivered 3 days after order, excellent. Have been purchasing similar flip flops from Portugal for last 5yrs, really pleased to find UK based supplier as was concerned re possible high duty post brexit. Only concern is that as per Portuguese product 10.5 is largest size and would be more comfortable with larger, otherwise great product and my experience is they are comfortable and wear extremely well.
Very interesting find and so unusual. I support the idea of cork flip flops and these seem to be top quality so won't be getting new ones any time soon. Recommended highly! Great job Corktrend.
They feel great on my feet, dry fast and are non slip. I found them a bit hard at first, but now I can spend all day in them no trouble. They have loosened and softened significantly. Get a pair you won't regret it.
As a person working in Spa Center and spending more then 6h every day on my feet . I really appreciate it the fact that They are so comfortable and orthopaedic
I have often found that when I buy cheap flip flops, they are uncomfortable and don't support my heel at all. So I thought for change I would spend a little extra and buy a non-cheap, decent pair. Shoes are not easy for me to purchase online as i have wide feet. The flip flops arrived very quickly and I tried them on straight away. They are well made, sturdy and cool really good. I definitely recommend it!
Those are the best flip-flops that I ever had! Super light and never get wet!
