Relaxed Yet Fashionable

There is always that elation we feel when our feet are not constrained by shoes, heels or boots, when you can just patter in your house barefoot or wearing slippers. It takes you to that memory of when you were young, and life was simple and you did not have any worries or concerns other than what to play and what to eat. It feels like finally you can wind down and relax, and do your chores unhurried. For most people, wearing shoes is more influenced by function and form rather than by comfort. Thus, when most people think about fashion, they never think about comfort, like one cannot have both. Different shoes exist for different activities, running shoes for the gym, pumps and leather shoes for office work, sandals for less formal events, and more styles that we could choose from.

If we consider form and function, then definitely flipflops are up there, since it offers the most comfortable fit, and yet can be used in many events and with different outfits. However, its appropriateness is a question that can be answered by the conviction of the wearer. Most fashion rules would not look kindly to the wearing of flipflops, but then those who would choose flipflops are already rebels or really do not care about fashion rules. There is that modern take on fashion that espouses comfort over style, and custom flipflops merges both worlds, relaxed yet fashionable.

Fashion should not be painful, it should not sacrifice comfort and it should be both a pleasure to wear and boost your positive energy. No matter how fashion forward or pretty the shoes may be, if it is painful to wear it is not something that you would be happy wearing, it would be a burden and will probably be worn once. Footwear should make us feel happy and beautiful, and custom flipflops really provide this. Just imagine slipping into a flipflop that has the right amount of thickness and softness to cushion your heels, that allows your toes to wriggle and move, and soft straps to allow that comfortable hold. So, reserve the shoes and boots for those non-negotiable events, and wear flipflops wherever you can.
