Why ‘Flip Flops Egypt’?
The term ‘flip flop’ has been used since around 1972 to replace the term ‘thong sandal’. It gets this lyrical name from the sound that is made by walking in them, making ‘flip flop’ an example of onomatopoeia. In its most basic form, a flip flop is a light sandal, typically of plastic or rubber, with a thong between the big and second toe.
This style of footwear has been worn by many cultures throughout the world and through thousands of years. We were lucky enough that this style originated in Egypt as early as 4000 BC. It is still debatable whether the Kiwi Morris Yock or the British John Cowie, who lives in Hong Kong, who was first to think of creating a synthetic version of the traditional Japanese woven soled zori or jonge sandals.
Nowadays, the flip flop has developed a lot, and Flip Flops Egypt takes on far more diverse designs but the theory is still the same: a thong-strap connected to a sole. Rubber remains the most common material to make the flip flop, however, our modern, fantastic, PVC plastic is most certainly the best!
