Summer Fun: Flojos Review and Giveaway!



Oh, sweet flip flops. My personal favorite part of Summer. 

I am from the South, and I hate to wear shoes. Yup, I'm a walking stereotype, but don't hate. 

Flip flops are the closet thing I can get to NO shoes, and when I have them on, my feet are just damn happy. 


So, for me, finding Flojos (that's "FLOW-HOSE", y'all..) was like finding a little piece of heaven.

Flojos means "kick-back" in Spanish, and they make kicking back easy with their wide selection of beach, fashion and sport sandals for the entire family. They focus on comfort, style and affordable prices, which are my favorite things in a shoe! 

Perfect couple, me and them, I tell ya! 


Wayyyy back in 1979, Flojo's hit the sandal market with the original Flojos rubber criss cross sandal. That bad boy can be found here

Man, oh man, has the world of sandals grown! From that original rubber style, just take a look at how far Flojos has come! They make some of the hottest, most fashionable sandals I have ever seen! 
Let me take you on a tour of some of my faves in the women's line: 



Ahh, love! But, not one to be greedy,(Who, me???) I guess I should show you a few great pairs from the mens, boys, and girls lines, shouldn't I? 

LOVE these for guys! 
And you guys already know that my Call of Duty boy would Flip over these! 

Almost makes me want a baby girl to put these on. Almost!

But, I will admit, when I found out that I was going to have a chance to review the Catalina flip flop, I think I might have peed my pants a little! 
This is the Catalina, the most lovely and wonderful of all flip flops. 

I should start out by saying that I am a huge fan of rattan soled sandals (or "the straw ones" as I so gracefully call them) and if I had my choice between a million pair, I would always, always choose the rattan soles. They are just the most comfortable sandal ever. 
The Catalina did not disappoint, nor did I expect it to! I absolutely love the fact that this sandal has a rubber outsole! This will help it to last a longer time than the ones I usually buy that just have the rattan sole. 

The  nylon strap is super comfortable, I like the fact that it is a little bit wider than a lot of flip flops that I wear. I will be wearing these honeys all Summer long, and I have already retired my crappier older flip flops to the back of the closet! These are the go-to ones from now on! 

The Catalina comes in several different colors, black, white, lime green, hot pink (the ones I reviewed), and check out these awesome Rasta ones! 
I would like to send a big thank you shout out to my new friends at Flojos for hooking me up with the greatest pair of sandals ever for the Summer. You should send a thank you to them too...

Because one lucky Flip Out Mama reader will win a pair of Catalina flip flops for themselves! Yayyyyy!!
