There is nothing like a nice and comfortable pair of flip flops in the summer! If you don’t wear flip flops, the first moment you try them, your life will probably change. This is probably the reason why a lot of high fashion brands are now commercializing flip flops for those who can afford it. There are many companies that sell Swarovski covered flip flops and sandals for those who want to be glamorous even when going to the beach.
If you don’t know what flip flops are, you probably missed their name since everybody must have worn a pair during their lives. The flip-flops, also called sandals by some, are created to provide maximum comfort for the wearer. They were created by the ancient Egyptians and worn throughout history by a lot of people because they were comfortable and very easy to manufacture. Nowadays, flip flops are created for a day at the beach or something comfortable to wear during the summer. Even though flip flops are not the most elegant type of foot wear, you can easily find a few fashionable models out there. Target or Old Navy has a few models for all kinds of tastes and preferences, whether you like your flip flops simple or with many patterns and flowers all over.
You can combine flip flops with miniskirts and even trousers but make sure that you opt for something casual. Also, never wear flip flops in areas where this might be considered impolite, such as elegant events or places. There is nothing that says bad taste more than flip flops in those areas.
As fashion items, flip flops are not considered to be great accessories by many designers but there are some who were eccentric enough to create the most expensive pair of flip flops, a pair that costs about 18,000$ and was designed by a contemporary artist. Of course, nobody sane would ever want to buy that but there are also high end brands that have considered creating flip flops.
Nobody should live without a pair of flip flops in their wardrobe as long as they don’t wear them at the wrong occasions.
When you think about sneakers, you should definitely think about Keds. Keds Shoes are the first sneakers ever produced so they not only have great experience in producing good footwear, there’s also an interesting history behind it. When creating the shoes the company wanted to name them Peds but it was already taken, so the Keds brand was born. This happened in 1917 and the shoes were considered to be extremely well made and high quality sneakers. Although Keds were popular from the beginning, they became really popular in 1949 along with their line called Pro-Keds that were adopted by basketball players and hip-hop artists. They were also the preferred footwear for tennis players around the world. The Triumph line was created for men and became an instant classic. Nowadays, there are still people that collect these sneakers.
These fashion items’ fame rose in the 1980 when they started being a big trend among teenagers. Because they were light and comfortable to wear, cheerleaders used them along with their uniform. There were several appearances in the media with people wearing them and they became some of the best sold footwear. They soon became popular among both sexes and a great option for those wearing casual-sporty clothes as they were comfortable and very durable.
Throughout the years the company did a lot of modifications to their existing models. Some models had anti-shock material to keep athletes from hurting their legs, others had material that kept your feet dry but one thing made Keds famous: their design.
Nowadays, Keds come along with other brands that offer sneakers, such as Converse, but have maintained their historical status among footwear and are still used by athletes all over the world. The cool thing about the company is the fact that it always comes up with what the market wants. For example, they introduced green Keds, which are environmentally friendly.
You can wear Keds with almost anything, from pants to skirts for a very comfortable and unique look. Pair them up with a comfortable rucksack or handbag and you will have great outfits for long walks.
Keds are also great for those looking for an urban look or a more nonconventional style and they are usually associated with hipsters everywhere. However, they can be a great option when you want something that looks and feels good.
Dr. Martens boots have been known for many years now. They became so popular among punk-rock bands that they have been a status symbol for rebels. The brand has become a British footwear brand that makes different products such as luggage, clothing or shoes, but before that it had an interesting history behind it. The boots were invented by Dr Klaus Märtens and when he injured his food while skiing he found that the boots he was wearing were very uncomfortable. The boots he was wearing were standard boots for the army and while he tried to walk in them, he couldn’t do it without pain so he decided he would make some modifications. He created a pair of boots with air-cushioned soles and leather. However, nobody bought his products but when he became partner with Dr. Herbert Funck, they started being a hit among people over the age of 40 because they were so comfortable.
Soon a factory was opened and a lot of factory workers and people who did heavy jobs used them. They were a great hit among the working class but they were soon to become fashion items that have been trendy for generations. In the early 70s skinheads started dressing with boots and Dr. Martens nicely made and comfortable boots were one of their options. By the 80s they become even more popular and when famous band members started wearing them, they were a massive hit. The company started manufacturing other leather products such as belts or luggage but nothing was so popular as the boots.
The boots made today are of the same good quality they used to be and they are great for those looking for something comfortable and chic. They used to be associated with rebel behavior but nowadays everybody has a pair and they have even been on the catwalks of some of the highest fashion designers. This urban trend is a great choice for those who want to experiment with punk fashion and are looking for the fashion items associated with it. Dr. Martens boots are definitely a big part of this subculture.
