FlipSlips Rainbow Collection | The Worlds Best Travel Shoes

$11,507

FlipSlips are colorful, foldable shoes made with premium materials. FlipSlips are redefining the classic ballet flat by adding a new twist: versatility and portability, allowing you to be comfortable everywhere you go.

What Are Women Saying About FlipSlips?

"In my opinion, FlipSlip Shoes are a wardrobe necessity, especially when you live in a city like San Francisco where you find yourself walking the majority of the time. The reflective straps provide an extra layer of safety when walking at night, and the overall comfort, ease and portability of the flats make them the perfect shoes to bring along to parties where you are going to change into heels. Simply put, FlipSlips are a must!"

"I love that you can fold these bad boys up in your purse, and that the straps are double-sided with different colors, so you can keep your color coordination game strong." - What The Fab  http://www.w-t-fab.com/2016/05/cozy-sweater-dress.html#.VyuK95MrIcg

"To say these shoes are comfortable would be an understatement! I wore them for about 13 hours while we did a variety of activities (all which seemed to involve walking) and the one thing that made all the difference in the world from my normal ballet slippers was the fact these were cushioned. I liked it so much that even when we got home, I kept them on. Walking around in the desert dust didn't ruin them either. All I had to do was take a damp rag and wipe them clean." - The Art of Possibility for Teachers http://artofpossibilityforteachers.blogspot.com/2016/04/flipslips-affordable-and-comfortable.html

Stuff You Should Know About: You Should Pack This - FlipSlips http://www.dangerous-business.com/2016/04/stuff-know-april-2016/

"My feet were in heaven when I slipped these on, the shoes are literally only 6 ounces! They mold and shape right to your foot and are so cozy. I wore mine all throughout the day and it felt like I had slippers on all day." http://www.mommyhatescooking.com/walking-comfort-flipslip-shoes

Introducing The Rainbow Collection

FlipSlips are available in eight vibrant colors ranging from sizes 6-11: Black, White, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Navy Blue, and Purple. 

5 Style Options in Every Pair

 Foldable Shoe Technology

When your shoes are not in use, use the straps to easily and tightly pack them up. This not only compresses the shoes to fit in your purse, but it also keeps it clean. Fold them in just 3 easy steps:

  • 1. Fold the shoe sole-to-sole 
  •  2. Flip the heel upper over 
  • 3. Wrap the strap around the shoe to compress.

THE REWARDS

FlipSlips Rainbow Collection

FlipSlips are available in sizes 6 to 11. With your help, additional sizes, including sizes 4 to 14, will be added as we meet our stretch goals. The fit is true to size. If you are in-between sizes, please go up to the next whole size. Also, feel free to mix & match sizes for you and your friends!

We guarantee a great fit and if for any reason you need to exchange sizes, we will gladly do so for just the cost of shipping on unworn merchandise.

A Closer Look at our Rainbow Collection

Color & Size Selection 

An survey will be emailed to all backers at the end of the campaign asking for size and color choices. You will also be able to change your selection until a later date.

Production Timeline

We have sampling and manufacturing lined up and ready to go! All we need to move forward is your help! Please join us by backing and sharing our project and help us bring FlipSlips to life and onto your feet!

Behind the Scenes

FlipSlip Shoes were invented in San Francisco with the idea that there should be a shoe that is portable and cute enough to be taken anywhere. After being unable to find a product that solved this problem, Esther Flatto decided that she had suffered enough from uncomfortable shoes. She wanted to design a product that took into account style, performance, hygiene and was able to deliver at a reasonable price. After many generations of prototypes, FlipSlips was born!

We've come a long way from our humble beginnings: here's a video of our very first prototype. 

We are proud to finally bring the most advanced FlipSlips ever to women everywhere through this Kickstarter project!

We will keep all of our backers updated throughout the entire production process of getting FlipSlips off the ground and onto your feet in the Updates section.

We hope you'll join us! Please help bring FlipSlips to life by backing & sharing this project with all your friends. Happy Holidays!

Risks and challenges

We have worked very hard to ensure the best quality manufactured products. We have a trusted partner who we have worked with in China for the past 5 years. We are confident in the quality and craftsmanship that goes into every single pair of partly handmade - machine made shoes. Our biggest risk lies in meeting the minimums for each color. We’ve set quite a few early bird specials to encourage manufacturing of every color. With your help, we’ll also be able to meet our stretch goals and offer more sizes and options so we can fit women’s feet everywhere!
