Sometimes we all need a friend who’s up for anything.
When we need a break and decide to ditch work early on a Tuesday afternoon to go for a hike, play basketball, go fishing, golfing, or whatever; this is the friend we call.
Flojos makes a flip flop that personifies this friend and they’ve named him Ryan.
He’s the buddy flip flop.
Ryan will go along wherever you take him and you’ll both have a great time.
He’s easy going and fun loving.
The more you hang out the better the fit. Ryan’s foam footbed conforms to the contours of your feet, but he’s no pushover.
He’s got your back.
The foamy footbed provides enough support to balance the squishiness and gets better with time.
They’re light enough that, despite the slightly too loose straps, toe curl is not an issue.
Ryan and I have done a lot together these past few weeks.
We’ve walked along a warm and sandy South Pacific beach, hung out poolside at a posh resort, and drank more than our fair share of the local beer. Ryan and I even flew together.
He was game for it all.
His only shortfall seems to be smooth hard surfaces such as tile or polished linoleum.
We slipped and slid our way through the mall.
But the mall’s not Ryan’s scene. He’ll join you if you ask because that’s the kind of buddy he is.
But he’s at his best outside and in the sun.
Ryan the buddy flip flop knows how to Do Life Right.
