F&F Sequin Trim Flip Flops
Advantages: Looks great and comes in a range of cute colours
Disadvantages: Not the best for longer outings
I'm sure most of you will have been out enjoying the wonderful weather that the UK has been having. I know that I have, and flip flops are an absolutely must for me. I really love wearing flip flops and I always slightly begrudge having to take them off and put them away at the back of the cupboard nearer the end of summer.
I'd love to say that I bought these sequence flip flops from Tesco (part of the F&F selection) for some exotic holiday, but I really bought them for flip flopping around the house and garden. To which they are perfect for.
I actually now have quite a few pairs of these sequence flip flops in various colours, last year I bought a gorgeous pair of bright turquoise sequence flip flops and so far this year I have bought the same pair in hot pink and black. The flip flops are a solid colour so for example the pink ones have the same pink sole and bright pink sequence section. Therefore they do really stand out from some of the more practical summer footwear I own that only has a decorative top part and a boring sole.
So the BIG question - Are they comfortable?
To begin with I would have to say nope, not at all. These sequence flip flops take a little while to loosen and to stop leaving substantial indents in my skin. But the material does relax with a bit of wear and tear and they do become not quite comfortable but very wearable. Also the sole of these flip flops are completely flat, something else to bear in mind if you require a bit more support.
Even thou I love wearing these sequence flip flops I do understand that they aren't perhaps the best flip flops to wear for a range of occasions, i.e., don't go on long walks wearing these. However, they do make an excellent pair of flip flops for sunbathing or popping down the shops. I tend to think of these flip flops as for light usage only and because they weigh next to nothing they are easy to pack in any bag that you might be taking to the pool or beach.
So what will these beautiful flips flops cost you?
One of the absolute best things about these sequence flip flops is the teeny tiny price tag. At £2.50 a pair I think that these are a complete bargain! And would certainly be a great addition to anyone's summer wardrobe.
Although I personally think that these flip flops look really good, and that's mostly because of the bright colours. They do have a bit of a cheap look about them and they do feel ever so slightly cheap, but then what would expect from something costing £2.50. The material they are made from is almost like a hard foam type of material and you can leave indents in them if you walk over stones, etc. I have been quite surprised that the pair I bought last year are still wearable although they do look like they've seen some miles.
Overall, I do recommend them, but don't expect too much other than a fashionable flip flop for wearing around the garden, pool or while sunbathing.
These flip flops get four out of five stars from me.
But if you were planning on buying these for wearing for any length of time then I'd have to bump that rating down to two out of five stars.
To sum, these are great flip flops but only for light use, taking on holiday or at the end of a night out when your feet won't go back in those high heels, for anything else then you really should consider investing in a more substantial pair of flip flops.
Summary: Four out of five stars
