Living in Florida I always wear sandals. I have casual ones for weekend days, dressy ones for evenings and even ones I wear to work. I am always on the lookout for fun sandals and am loving these lindsay phillips interchangeable sandals!
LINDSAY PHILLIPS is the energetic inspiration and founding force behind SwitchFlops. Her footwear concept evolved from a high school art project—ceramic flip flops. Amazed by the response, Lindsay began designing functional flops with colorful straps, each adorned by a unique button. Her idea evolved when she realized that by using hook-and-loop fasteners she could create one shoe with many straps–unlimited choices with minimal effort. This simple, yet brilliant innovation was the birth of SwitchFlops. Lindsay applied for a patent on her idea before she graduated high school.
During her college years Lindsay perfected her interchangeable design. Her travels to Europe for classes and her voyage around the world on the Semester at Sea exposed her to a kaleidoscope of cultures, colors, and patterns that would influence her strap designs. Lindsay honed her design, merchandising and manufacturing skills working summers at Polo Ralph Lauren’s leather goods division in New York City. After her patent was granted in 2004, she joined forces with her mother, Liz, to start her business and find a manufacturer. SwitchFlops made its retail debut in January 2007 at the Surf Expo Trade Show in Orlando where it was showcased as a new and innovative product. Orders started rolling in and explosive growth followed. Lindsay’s venture is now a leading retailer of custom flip flops and shoes, with a growing lineup of bags and scarves.
With the amazing variety of SwitchFlops strap designs and sandals, Lindsay’s dream of changing from beach casual to a formal affair in a matter of seconds was realized. A dressier take on the classic flip flop, Gwen has a 1″ wedge heel, tapered patent straps, and a fun silver footbed for added shine. Comes with a coordinating round snap.
I got the casual Gwen wedge which is perfect with a 1 inch heel. I have worn these with jeans, capris and pants – just depends! The embellishment is interchangeable and I received two different ones to try out some new looks! Check out all of the fun styles you can create!
I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
