George Basic Flip Flops
Advantages: Cheap, varity of colours, feel comfortable
Disadvantages: Not a lot of grip
I'm an often known to put a pair of flip flops into my normal food shop trolley if I happen to visit the clothing department at Asda or Tesco. They are so cheap and often good quality, it's hard to say no. On a recent trip to Asda I picked up a pair of their cheapest basic flip flops.
There are three different sizes available to purchase these flip flops in, small 3-4 shoe size, medium 5-6 or large 7-8. I am a size 5 so bought the medium size pair, these fit me well and despite them being for 5 and 6, they don't feel too big or like they are about to slip off my feet.
There are many different colours in which to purchase these flip flops, the display in my local Asda looked very colourful, even though most of the colours are in a pastel shade. I decided to buy the white ones as white goes with everything clothes wise.
The flip flops are made very well despite being so cheap. They have the basic design that most flip flops have with a Y bar going between your first and second toes and coming right back over your feet so they stay secure. The sole is quite nice on these, they have the three circles that are keeping the Y bar in place, but these aren't raised from the sole so you can't feel them when walking. They have small grooves across the bottom to give you a little grip, the sole also feels quite spongey.
I really like these flip flops, the Y bar doesn't dig in between my toes like you would expect from a cheap pair and my feet feel safe from falling off when walking. The sole does protect your feet from gravel and stray rocks on the floor to some extent, you can still feel them through the sole but it isn't an uncomfortable feeling as the sole has a nice bounce to it. The grip could be improved in my opinion, I've tried walking up a steep-ish slope in these and my foot just end up slipping back down again. I've walked the slope in other flip flops before just fine.
These flip flops only cost £2, just £2! They are so cheap you would expect them to be rubbish quality, but they aren't! I definitely recommend these flip flops if you are after a pair of comfortable cheap flippies. However, if you are going to be walking up any slopes or need a lot of grip for anything, then I would avoid these.
Summary: Good flip flops
