Summer means sandals, and for me that generally means sliding on a pair of flip flops most days. SOLE has been on my radar more and more the last few years, and I was excited to test their new Laguna Flip this season.
The sandals are cute and comfortable, and their sustainability story is notable as well.
SOLE launched the ReCORK program in 2008 and it has grown into North America’s largest natural cork wine closure recycling program. SOLE takes the recycled wine corks and uses them as the primary material for footwear — like the sole of the Laguna Flip. Adaptable support from these flip flops comes from a wear-moldable ReCORK recycled cork footbed, making them customized to your feet.
The Laguna Flip has a flex-knit strap that looks great dressed up or down. I wear these on the way to yoga and with jeans for a summer evening in town.
I love how these sandals truly offer support with a high-quality (and earth-friendly) footbed. So many flip flops are flat underfoot and can create strain in my arch with wear over several hours, but the Laguna Flip feels great and the more I wear them the more comfortable they get.
Priced at $75, these are definitely more of an investment than most flip flops, but you’ll easily get at least two summers out of them, if not more.
