Flip-flops which are also known as chanklas, thongs, slappies, slides, jandals, pluggers, and step-ins are a sort of open toed sandal usually worn at casual occasions, one example can be at the beach. Flip Flops consist of a flat and sometimes high raised sole which is loosely attached to the open scissors shaped strap. The name "flip-flop" is derived from the sound these make by slapping between the sole of the foot and the flooring while walking.
They are prepared for a vast range of material, like leather, suede, plastic, rubber, canvas, nylon, etc. They protect the wearer from any kind of hazard on the ground. The popularity of the flip-flops is increasing these days like plague; people are spotted wearing flip-flops pairing with jeans or any casual wear. They are a super hit among youth and people who go for evening grocery shopping at local markets or dog walking. Wide varieties of flip flops are available these days with hundreds of colours and added embellishments like beads, stones, laces, embroideries to the thong.
