We have just come back from a fabulous weeks holiday at Woolacombe which is my favourite place and where we go about three times a year. There are a few clothes shops in Woolacombe which sell surfer and outdoor type clothing which aren't cheap but as it was September most of them had sales on. I have seen these Rocket Dog Daisy flip flops the last time we were there and they were £17.99 and I was going to buy them then but just didn't go back to the shop for some reason. When I saw that they were reduced to £8 and luckily they had a size 5 I bought them straight away. They also had them in black and a lovely turquoise shade and I was very tempted to buy them in the turquoise colour as well as they also had a 5 in these but I thought that this was a bit extravagant and as yellow is my favourite colour I settled for those.
The sole is about an inch thick and looks like a light coloured grained wood but is actually rubber. It is shaped to your foot and feels very comfortable to wear. They have the Rocket Dog logo to the top of the sole in a white flower shape which is also made of rubber. The straps are a canvas type material in a bright yellow colour and is covered with white plastic flowers and the toe post is made of the same fabric as the strap and is about 3/4 inch thick so feels very comfortable between your toes. They also have a flower pattern imprinted onto the sole.
I bought these on the first day of our holiday and wore them almost every day and found them to be extremely comfortable. The sole feels a bit spongy and is flexible when you are walking and as they are contoured to your feet they feel very secure and you don't feel that you will slip out of them. I put them on straight after paddling in the sea and walking on the sand so I obviously had sand on my feet and they were also a bit damp but the sand soon seemed to brush off and they didn't absorb any moisture. The toe post is very soft and comfortable and didn't rub or irritate me at all.
I think these flip flops are very smart and are suitable to wear in the daytime and also the evening. I did wear them to go out a few nights with a nice pair of jeans and they did look very smart. I had a pair of flat Rocket Dog shoes many years ago and I remember that they did last for a long time and I am sure that these flip flops will also last a long time. I must say that I love these flip flops and have worn them around the house since we got home. I will have a look the next time we go down to see if they are still selling them and will definitely buy the turquoise ones if they are still on offer.
