The World's First Extreme Flip Flop With Replaceable Gripping Soles

FlipRocks are a complete redesign of the flip flop. With a strong focus on outdoorsmen and women who require a lot from their footwear, these extreme flip flops are actually three shoes in one! Thanks to our patented, rugged design with interchangeable, replaceable soles that are constructed with Griptoenite gripping technology, they are tough enough to withstand any adventure while keeping your feet firmly planted on any surface.

Flip flops are the best shoes to wear when the mercury rises! They're easy to put on and take off, they're light and they keep your feet cool. But we’ve all had times when we wish our flip flops could deliver more and get us through an activity. Well, FlipRocks are the solution. They give you the power to hike, wade through water and even run after your dog without the perils of ordinary flip flops.

  

 

 

FlipRocks users can choose between three different designs depending on the sport or use the FlipRocks will be getting. They also come with an adjustable (and removable) back strap for a custom fit and personal preference on each adventure. No flip flop can be called 'Extreme' without protecting your precious toes. FlipRocks has you covered with a soft but highly durable built-in toe guard for added protection.

FlipRocks were designed with the human foot in mind. We didn't throw a flat piece of foam on the floor and slap a thong and toe-post on and call it done. These extreme flip flops are molded with a contoured foot-bed to support the natural arch in your foot, heel and ball of your feet.

There are currently three types of Griptoenite gripping pads available with different degrees of traction depending on your activity.

GripToeNite Gripping pads come in the following distinct designs:

This FlipRock interchangeable Griptoenite gripping pad includes built-in stainless steel cleats and formulated rubber composites that keep your footing in aggressive fast-moving rivers and slime-coated rocks on beaches. Simply attach them onto your FlipRocks before you head out, or when you know water is going to be part of your day’s adventure. This sole is a great option for Hikers, fishermen, wilderness athletes and anyone who needs sure footing.

(Please note: As the description states, these grips have cleats. They are not to be worn indoors. Either change the pads to a non-cleated pad before entering the house or just leave them at the door. Practice common sense)

 This FlipRock interchangeable Griptoenite gripping pad is focused more on balance in wet conditions and includes a felt sole for stability and traction when on a boat, kayak or walking the shoreline. These shoes are also a great option for keeping the floors of your vessel free from damage and allowing you enough grip to jump from boat-to-shore or boat-to-dock without your feet slipping.

This sole is a great option for boaters, kayakers, surf casters and even beach combers. If you like jet skis, scuba diving, whitewater canoeing or yak fishing, then this is the sole for you.

 This FlipRock interchangeable Griptoenite gripping pad is best used when you're going to take a hike through the mountains or other dense forest areas. This would be a great time to use the removable strap included with your FlipRocks to keep them firmly in place on your feet. These pads are extremely rugged and perform perfectly in rough terrain to protect your feet from the harsh grounding. Yet comfortable enough to wear just about anywhere.

If chasing waterfalls, seeking out mountain tops and climbing through challenging off trail terrain is your mission, this is the sole you’ll want to choose.

Aside from the fact that FlipRocks are better for outdoor adventure use than any other flip flop, there is also the added benefit of being able to swap out the soles once they are worn down without having to buy an entirely new pair of shoes. Stop wasting money on shoes that promise to provide protection and comfort outdoors when doing activities and either fail to deliver on the promise or come with lousy design. Once your FlipRocks are totally broken-in and your feet love them, just replace the pads when you need to and rock on!

After tens of thousands of dollars and hundreds of man-hours bringing FlipRocks to reality, we’re ready to spread the word farther and need some help doing it. With our KickStarter campaign we're hoping that extreme outdoorists, adventure seekers, hikers, kayakers, fishermen and those tired of wasting money on sandals that don’t serve their purpose, will come together to support FlipRocks, the flip flop that finally delivers on the promise to provide comfort, performance and protection while you spend your time outdoors seeking out all the thrills and adventures that await.

Risks and challenges

We have spent the last several months working with our designers and manufacturers to make the transition from prototype to production as smooth as possible. They have been through this cycle hundreds of times before and have connected us with a world-class supply chain to make it happen.

Working with different vendors, suppliers and manufacturers does open up more opportunities for possible delay or unforeseen complications in the manufacturing and distribution process. We promise to do everything in our power to deliver our product on time, but a potential setback could be based on factors outside of our control. Should this happen, please be patient and know we are working diligently to get everything on track.

We will communicate with our backers every step of the way and keep everyone informed and up to date on our progress until every pair of FlipRocks have delivered to you.
