Introducing Foot Flops™
Foot Flops™ are the first high-quality, heat-molded, orthotic and arch-supporting flip flops on the market. Foot Flops will provide users with instant comfort without the painful break-in time that comes with regular flip flops.
In The Press
We were inspired to create Foot Flops after experiencing all of the advancements made in insole technology. As avid skiers and snowboarders, we saw how comfortable heat-molded inserts are and instantly realized all the benefits they provided for our feet and overall body. We wanted this comfort to be available to you, and not just when you’re on the slopes. This is why we decided to create Foot Flops.
1. No break-in time = super comfortable straight out of the oven.
2. Superior arch support = less back pain and foot lengthening over time.
3. Higher-end design and fashionable = you look super cool!
Foot Flops are Perfect for Every Place & Activity:
75% of Americans will experience foot problems at one time or another in their lives. Traditional flip flops do not address these issues in any way. Foot Flops are the solution to traditional flip flops!
How to Make Your Very Own Foot Flops: ( See Video )
- Step 1: Preheat oven to 200 - 250 degrees F depending on desired mold depth.
- Step 2: Insert Foot Flops in oven for 5 - 7 minutes directly on middle rack
- Step 3: Pull out Foot Flops and step directly into the Foot Flops with your foot as close to center as possible.
- Step 4: Ensure Foot Flops are on a hard, even surface during molding
- Step 5: Rock your feet back and forth with equal weight for optimal mold
Within 10-15 minutes they will be cooled down completely. We recommend wearing them for at least 15 minutes after the molding process. Complete instructions will be included with your package.

Design & Manufacturing
There are many different factors that play a part in the performance of Foot Flops and the key ingredient is our patent pending thermoplastic layer (Thermo-Form™ foam). What we have succeeded in creating is the perfect materials that form completely to your feet with our patent pending HEAT™ technology.
We promise our product will have the same health benefits and comfort that have been used by many aftermarket orthotic insoles, at a fraction of the cost while keeping up with the newest trends in style and fashion.
Foot Flops are approved and recommended by renowned podiatrists, physical therapists and athletes alike. Our number one focus is to deliver a product that will make your life happier, one step at a time.
When do I select my color(s) and size(s)? An email will be sent out after our funding campaign is over to collect your color choice(s) and size(s). A sizing chart will be sent with the email to help you get the exact size for Men's or Women's.
Can I pick different sizes and colors in the same order? Yes, for multi-pair rewards you can select different sizes and colors.
Can I order a half size? At this time, there are no half sizes; please round up.
If left in a hot car or outside, will they melt or need to be reshaped? No. Once molded they hold their shape. The Foot Flops would have to be exposed to temperatures above 250 F to get back to a moldable form. This could only be done in a traditional oven as your vehicle should never reach that temperature.
How often do Foot Flops need to be remolded? Just once! After their first molding, Foot Flops will hold their shape. Do they lose their shape in water? No. Foot Flops are actually perfect around the water and they float too!
Can they be reheated to mold to another person’s foot? No. We don’t recommend reheating Foot Flops for another person. They are meant to be heated just one time for one specific person.

Jamie Mackay A Jackson Hole, Wyoming native, Jamie Mackay grew up accustomed to the Rocky Mountain region and all of the unique qualities and activities it has to offer. With a passion for outdoor life and its beauty, he acquired an eye for Western contemporary design and has traveled the world to learn more about his passion. As a result of his upbringing in a mountain town, Jamie developed a preference for THE best gear and clothing for his lifestyle. Ski orthotics became a must-have for instant comfort in the winter, but he wanted an instantly comfortable pair of flip flops going into summer. With constant scrutiny of the latest fads and releases, Jamie knew there could be a better flip flop with instant comfort, right out of his ski boots. He became passionate about his quest to make the best flip flop ever made.

Risks and challenges
We have spent the last several months working with our industrial designers 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.
However, working with other vendors and manufacturers does open up more opportunities for delay 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.
However, there will always be unknown risks in the manufacturing process, a delay can occur, or an error could happen in the Foot Flops process. We will communicate with our backers from start to finish and keep everyone informed and up to date on our progress until every pair of Foot Flops are delivered to you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
