Hello everyone! Today I would love to share how you can save your old flip flop or buy a new one! We all have a pair of flip flops that we enjoy wearing around the house. Some of us might actually enjoy wearing them a little too much and we take every opportunity we have to wear them while going out, as well. While this is fine, it will reduce the life span of your flip flops. One way to resolve this issue is to look for a Flipflop sale and buy a new pair. However, if you are feeling too attached to the pair you already have, here are a few tips to help you repair and restore them to their former glory.
1. Avoid bending the flip flop
If you want your flip flops to last as long as possible, you should avoid bending them in the middle as if you were curling your foot and standing on your toes. This is a habit that some people might have, but this will weaken the flip flops and cause them to deteriorate.
2. Fix the Rubber Peg
The most common issue with flip flops involves the rubber peg which is located between the big toe and the second toe. This will often get broken or get ripped out of the flip flop, making the shoes useless. However, it can be reattached with a little ingenuity. All you need is a plastic bread clip that you attach to the stem underneath the sole. Push the peg through the hole and apply super glue to it. Now all you have to do is pull the peg back up tight and let it dry.
3. Professional repair
If you are really attached to your flip flops or if they were particularly expensive, you can always take them in for professional shoe repair and they will be as good as new.
