Strip-Straps - Ankle Straps for Flip-Flops

By: on May 03, 2017

Name that sound: Smack, smack, smack...hrrghh! It's your flip-flops flip-flopping along a trail, boat deck, or sidewalk. And then it's your flip-flops catching an edge and slipping off your foot while you grunt out an attempt to regain your balance before eating a ground sandwich. Strip-Straps seek to save you the sound effects--and ground effects--of flip-flop wear with their removable ankle straps that, in a phrase, "take the Flop out of Flip-Flop."

Strip-Straps attach to most open-back sandal / flip-flop brands to provide heel support without the added cost of buying sport-specific sandals or water shoes. They loop through at either side of flops' own straps and velcro together for full adjustability. Once in place Strip-Straps' neoprene heel padding keeps them comfortable during wear, and a top heel loop makes getting your flip-flops on and off relatively easy.

Conceived in the Virgin Islands and made in the USA, Strap-Straps come in a variety of colors and 3 different lengths.
