~*~ Animal Swish Sandals ~*~
Obviously they are flip flops , not sure why they have been called sandals , anyway I love flip flops , I have a small obsession for buying them , and probably own 30 pairs now .
I bought these back in January from amazon for around £12 . They come in all sorts of different colours and designs .
The ones I bought are mainly brown , there is a pink line running around the outside of the sole, and the foot post and strap has small pink polka dots. There is also a small plastic animal badge in the middle.
~*~ The Fit ~*~
I ordered these in a ladies size 3 , some stores sell them as small, medium and large , then these would be a small. They are an excellent fit length wise and true to size.
When I first tried on the flip flops the bit that goes across your foot felt a little snug , but I found that within 2 days of wearing them around them house they relaxed a little and now fit perfectly , and they haven't slackened anymore through wear.
The toe post is made of a soft material and I found it comfortable straight away , with no rubbing or discomfort.
~*~ The comfort ~*~
Wow is all I can say these are the most comfortable flip flops ever , or at least the most comfortable out of the 30+ pairs I own.
When I bough these I had my upcoming holiday in mind, we are off to Disney World [ big grin ] which involves lots of walking in the lovely hot sun .
I had originally planned to wear them around the house for a couple of weeks so they were nice and comfy then put them away for my holiday.
~*~ In Use ~*~
In reality I haven't taken them off , I'm even wearing them now instead of slippers now the weather is warmer .
Some days I am wearing them 15+ hours on my feet and not once have I had aching or sore feet.
I can not fault them at all . The fit is lovely they stay on your feet well , you can drive in them , run up stairs in them, all without them flipping or flopping off.
They stand up well to water and dry quickly with a wipe of a towel so perfect for the beach or a water park .
~*~ Conclusion ~*~
Fantastic flip flops , super comfy , well worth the price . I love them so much i'm going to buy another pair [ or 2 ] for my holiday , an added bonus is they are available in so many different designs chances are you won't have the same pair as anyone you know .
5 out of 5
I love it when summer comes, I tend to live in flip flops all summer long. I used to buy the cheaper flipflops for about £3 a pair, after having ankles that ached and the soles wore down so quickly I realised that this was maybe false economy so I spend a bit more and bought myself an Animal pair.
Animal is a brand that I recognise, I own quite a few Animal products now and have always found them to be good quality and last me a long time.
I bought my last two pairs of the Swish flipflops from the Animal Outlet shop which is on eBay. The products on here are cheaper than from the normal Animal website. They arrived hung on a cardboard hanger and wrapped in clear plastic. They had sticky labels on the bottom of the shoe with the shoe size on.
The details are listed as they are online: PU Nubuck Uppers With Spandex Lining & Toe Post
- Logo Printed Super Soft EVA Midsoles - Graded EVA Foot Beds - Expanded EVA Branded Outsoles
The material lined toe post is in a contrasting colour so my pink pair and hot pink with white floral patterns printed on sole, and the material is white with grey polka dots on. It has white flowers printed on the strap with the 'Animal' logo in letters made from the rubbery material.
Usually they cost around £14 but on the outlet shop you can get them from £7, depending on what shoes size you are.
I am a size 5 and I find these true to size. I have never had to 'break these in'. They are soft and comfortable to wear. The printed logo on the sole on the flip flip wears off where your feet are but that doesn't worry me.
I have two pairs one Navy and one Bright Pink, I wear these almost every day. The navy ones are ones I bought last summer but still look good. I tend to wipe them off with a baby wipe if they get a bit dusty. I wear mine with jeans, cropped trousers and skirts. Before I first tried them I thought that they looked too 'chunky' but now I wear them I don't even notice it.
Overall I would recommend these and I will keep buying these every summer. You can get all sorts of different colour combinations to match different outfits, they are soft and comfortable. I find that I can wear them all day with no problems. I find they tend to mould to your foot shape so they stay in easily. They last well and are worth every penny!
I would give these 5 stars but due to the print coming off the foot bed part I will deduct one.
Thanks for reading.
It is not often I use shouty capital letters in the title of a review - but I simply have to get across to you the amazing comfort of these flip flops from Animal.
I am a very recent discoverer of these flip flops and boy, do I wish I had found them years ago! I am one of these people who has terrible trouble with shoes rubbing and also with allergies to certain man made materials being against my skin. I frequently buy a nice pair of sandals or flip flops and have to abandon them because the toe post or the material over the top of the foot rubs like crazy after a small amount of walking.
The Animal 'Swish' range are different because they are made of a very soft but firm foam material across the top part so they really do feel almost like slippers and there is absolutely nothing that can rub at all. Indeed the feeling while wearing them is amazing, they grip around the feet like cotton wool but are secure enough to feel safe to walk in.
You only have to have a quick scan of other reviews to see the amazing comfort is celebrated by everyone who buys these flip flops - it was because of the strength of feeling on Amazon from other buyers that I went ahead and bought my first pair, I loved them so much that within two weeks I had bought a second pair.
Even better is that this range comes in a very wide range of patterns and colours, all with exactly the same fit and fabric composition. I have a turquoise and white pair and a navy pair - the different colours and patterns seem to be what dictate the prices - but they all seem to be between £10-15 a pair which is fabulous value for such a wonderfully comfortable pair of summer sandals.
I recently went into the Animal store at the Bullring in Birmingham and they had a wide variety on the shelves marked down to a round tenner a pair. They come in standard adult sizes and the only minor note I would make is that they are quite narrow fitting (not an issue for me as I have narrow feet but something to bear in mind if you take a wider fit).
A final very useful thing to know is that these are machine washable and apparently they come up like new if you do this - although I have not had to do so yet. I absolutely love these and hope they continue to make the range for many years to come as I have a feeling they will become my new go-to shoes in the summer and on holiday.
One of the pairs of flip flop sandals I own are these Animal Swish Sandals. I actually bought them whilst on holiday a couple of years ago, when one of the older pairs I'd use on the beach started to rub me and make it sore between my toe as the toe-post wore thin. I bought these in a beachside clothing store and they cost me around 8 euros, which is really more than I'd have liked to pay but they were the pair I liked best and trying them on I found I really liked the feel of them.
I liked the design of these flip flops with their striped soft lightweight foam base, and a swirling 'Animal' logo written across the top of the shoe's sole. The colour combination of yellow, grey and white is Summery but not garish, and the white strap of the sandals is also nice looking. There were a few other designs of these Animal sandals but I preferred the grey and yellow ones.
Trying these on in the shop, and later wearing them every day for a couple of weeks whilst on holiday, I found that these were very comfortable to wear. The toe-post is quite padded and has a really soft feel to it which made my sore toes feel much better. Similarly, the strap over the top of my foot is soft, feels padded and fits snuggly, so I had no problems with these rubbing or chafing at all. They are very light as well as being comfortable, so as a wearing experience these are a great pair of flip flop sandals.
I wore these a lot during the holiday, so I definitely feel like I got my 8 euros worth of money's out of them, plus I wore them for another year on and off after buying them. They lasted me well, and although they are looking a little battered now, I can really recommend this comfortable, stylish and affordable shoes from surf brand Animal.
When my Fiancé and I went to Spain I took several pairs of flip flops. I always live in flip flops in the summer months and always buy several new pairs for my holiday. This year I bought a pair of Animal Swish Sandals ( they are flip flops but for some reason Animal call, them sandals). I got them from Amazon and they cost about £12.00.
They come in quite a few different colours and patterns. Mine are different to the ones in the picture, I opted for a pink and white pair.
Animal Swish flip flops are so soft and comfy! The pair I bought are mainly white and have the Animal logo in bright pink and a flower pattern, also in pink ,on the foot. The straps are matching and the toe post has a lovely soft vivid pink material lining which sits against your toe. This is part of what makes these flip flops so nice to wear in really hot weather. There is a thin pink band around the sole which gives it a slight stripy effect.
There is a small rubber Animal logo attached to the strap, this is in white.
The base of the flip flop is made from a spongy synthetic material, it feels quite foamy. The base has a slight shaping to it making your feet sit snugly in the flip flops. They are very easy to walk in.
I have worn these flip flops countless times over the summer and they have shown very little signs of wear. They have proved to be durable and still look very good. I've also washed them a few times and they come up really well.
My Animal Flip-flops have been so comfortable, especially on holiday. I have found in the past that walking around all day in very hot weather can cause the toe post on flip flops to rub a bit and make my feet sore. I had no problems with this when wearing the Animal flip-flops. The soft material on the toe post is a real bonus.
I would recommend these flip flops, weather you are on holiday or just at home, they are so soft and spongy to walk on. They look god with shorts, cropped trousers or skirts. Just about anything really. I will definitely be buying another pair next year.
I was looking in JD Sports last week for a nice tracksuit for my granddaughters birthday when I wandered over to the sale section to see if there was anything suitable on there. Well, I couldn't find the kind of tracksuit I was after but I did treat myself to a new pair of flip flops to take with me when I go on holiday in a few weeks. When I got to the till the chap serving said they had made everything on the sale section BOGOF as the store is soon closing for a refit and they want to get rid of all their old stock. He went back and picked me up a second pair of the flip flops with a different design so I have a pair to wear at home now and a second brand new pair for the beach.
Swish Sandals are made by Animal and are a kind of upmarket flip flop, they look much nicer than standard plastic flip flops and I have found that because the toe bar is well padded I do not get the irritation and chafing between my toes as I have experienced with cheaper flip flops.
The sole is made of a lightweight foam and I find this makes them light on my feet even when I have been walking in them for a while. The soles are also nice and cool on my feet which is very good in my opinion because other flip flops I have worn over the years have made my feet sweat and become sticky because they are so plasticey. I know the weather has been wet in recent days, but it has still being surprisingly warm and humid so I have taken to wearing these flip flops in the garden because they keep my feet comfortable and cool and it doesn't matter if they get dirty because they rinse off so easily under warm water.
The toe strap doesn't rub at all and hugs my feet so that they are not slipping up and down with every step I take. I bought a size 4 and they fit my size 4 ½ feet perfectly so I would suggest they are slightly generous in their sizing so perhaps it would be best for you to try them on before buying.
These flip flops are extremely comfortable. I have worn them around the house, in the garden and also walked down to my local shops. I have not had any problems or blisters because this is such a comfortable and soft to the touch shoe.
The designs I have differ from the flip flops pictured above, mine are a chocolate sole with large beige flowers printed around the Animal logo. I think they are very attractive and the printing is done so that they look stylish and of very good quality.
I paid £4.99 in the JD Sports sale for two pairs of these fantastic flip flops, but the usual price is about £12 when they are not on offer. I would say this is still very good value though because the flip flops are so comfortable and good looking. My daughter commented that they 'are a bit surfer for you, Mum' and when I looked online I saw that Animal are indeed a surfing clothes designer so perhaps she's right - but you will not get me near a surfboard!
These Animal flipflops(although named sandals in the description) are extremely comfortable. I purchased them online a while ago at a reasonable price of £11.99. I would say they are the best flipflops that I've bought.
The sole of the flipflops are made of foam and the very cushtie toepost and straps are padded, so you could probably walk for miles in them. Two other members of my family have purchased these, but in a different pattern. They agree with how comfy they are!
Ideal for your summer holiday, these flipflops are incredibly stylish and will last you a long time.
I was quite suprised by the quality of these flipflops when I first put them on, since they are the first Animal flipflops that I've purchased. The style/pattern of them is "lemon drop" and they simply hug your feet, so there is no chance of them falling off whilst walking along!
Overall, these are a great pair of flipflops, very surfy and stylish.
