About this project
FlipFlops that give back!
Designed by the people, chosen by the people and funded by the people. FlyingFlips are awesome FlipFlops with designs from the crowd and chosen by the crowd, with a share of profits going to winning designers.
Your support will enable us to print our first run of FlipFlops, while letting you become one of the first to own a pair!
We started FlyingFlips for a reason.
“How do we create art that ignites positive change in our community and inspires a little more good around the world, all while having some flippin fun?”
Turns out the answer was at our feet...!
We were raised on the West Coast, so FlipFlops are how we roll! They radiate great memories of sunny days and trips to faraway lands ~ We decided to make flips that embody a love of art and the gift of sharing, all rolled up into one.
FlyingFlips are crazy-comfortable, artist-designed FlipFlops.
What is a crowdsourced FlipFlop?
We're glad you asked, it goes like this. Designs are submited to flyingflips.com. The flyingflips community votes on their favorite designs. Those designs are printed on eco-friendly FlipFlops and put in our online shop. You purchase your favourite design, we throw it in a recyclable tyvek bag and ship it to your home. We then give a share of the profits to the designer that created that flipflop.
So not only will they be the flyest ;) pair of sandals you’ve ever owned, they’ll also put a big grin on your face! The kinda grin that comes from knowing that you’ve provided an independent artist the opportunity to put their artistic expression on a cool product chosen by the people!
Once you've worn out your flips with lots of love and travel. Send them back to us, we'll recycle them and provide you with a credit towards your next FlyingFlips purchase.
Still have questions? Head on over to flyingflips.com for all the details.
