My stock of foreign flipflops was left in Texas, readers. I’ve been reduced to buying and wearing cloth tennis shoes for $7.95 from Walmart. And it turns out they hold up better than a pair of $20 flipflops and don’t stink any worse any sooner. Worth knowing. Jack
There’s a grave crisis looming, readers. Time was when good American foots were protected by good American-made flip-flops. They never failed. Those old timey flip-flops lasted until they’d absorbed so much foot odor a hog would turn up its nose at them. Normal landfills rejected them, demanded they be treated as hazardous waste.
But that’s all changed. You see how those straps come out? See how the layers of soles separate, sneakily intended to render the entire thing useless? That’s the Asian plan for taking over the flip-flop world.
They think there’s nothing a good American can do about it, but they’re wrong. If you can remember to pick up some Gorilla Glue you can make those babies run until they stink, just like the good American ones did. In the top pic you can see those had been glued, but not sufficiently and the soles peeled open elsewhere.
