Beyond the Trend: Flip-Flops

START

Though thonged sandals are thought to date back to the ancient Egyptians, the modern flip-flop became popular in the United States in the 1940s, when soldiers brought Japanese zori sandals home from the war. The style quickly became popular for the summertime, especially in the 1960s when they became a go-to for surfers and beach goers. From then on, the modern flip-flop has become a footwear staple and one of the most popular and accessible shoes styles, worn by everyone from socialites to lifeguards. High fashion renditions of the thonged shoe have graced runways for decades, with new renditions accompanying intricate designs and flowing gowns. As summer approaches, CR looks back at the extensive history of flip-flops, from 20th century Japan to early 2000s Paris Hilton.
