Ode To A Flip Flop

Flip Flops, Oh Flip Flops
How I love you so.

You've been so comfy without fail,
I want the world to know.

I've worn you months on end, most of my waking hours,
Still you've yet to wear out at all, you must have super powers.

Just as sparkley as the day we met,
not a crack, rip or tear.
So absolutely soft and light, you're like walking on air.

You've been my shoe of choice, all I ever want to wear,
I love you so much, in fact, I bought another pair!

I made the poem up while cooking dinner, thought it was funny.
If these are available where you live, I urge, nay, implore you to buy a pair. I think I've said enough but they are the most comfortable thing I've ever put on my feet, and so durable. Everything gets so worn out so easily here. I'm not crazy about the smileys on the silver pair but they wont show when I'm wearing them anyway.


  1. Hahaha, Mona, you cracked me up, lol! The interesting this is that I happened to buy some aerosoft sandals 2 days ago from Mahmal...and was eyeing their selection of cutie slippers, debating whether or not to rack up right now for summer or just wait til next season...I ended up getting the sandals only, but seeing as how comfy they are (and they are REALLY comfy mashaa Allaah) I'm thinking I'm gonna go back inshaa Allaah and get a couple pair for next summer. I say next summer because I usually have to wear socks in the winter and thong slippers with socks is like, soooo annoying to me, lol!

  2. Haha I like this because I'm the opposite. I HATE flip flops! And whenever someone has flip flops in my house I hide them in the cupboard so I can't see them.

  3. I looooove sandals and comfy ones? Yes! I'll look for these here now that I've got 2 good recommendations.

    About buying another pair for when these wear out: I do this too. Once I found some t-shirts I loved the cut, so I bought one in every color and TWO of the grey. I used to do dialysis and always needed short sleeves so these were perfect. :-)

    Ma salaama....

    Oh wow, my mother has the same flip flops as you (the first picture) in brown version as well. I adore flip flops as well but since Canada's different seasons I have to get used to them during summer time for some reason my feet hurt trying to readjust to them :S

    I wish I lived in a hot country though! I would never have the need for boots, just flats and flip flops!!

  5. Asiya, I wear them year round plus at home :)Actually, when I do my daily walking,my sneakers gave me blisters and the slippers without socks hurt my feet cause sand would get in between but now I walk with socks and the black flip flops and I look dorky but I'm comfortable, and I don't care!

    Jaz, And you lived in Egypt? Don't you know the shibshib is standard at home? :)

    Umm Aaminah, I got the second pair because I was worried that once/if these finally wear out I won't be able to find them!

    Perfectly Imperfect, Yea it's fine to wear them all year here. :)

  6. i use flip flops in the bathroom, the kitchen and at the pool...

    and sometimes i use flip flops to go get something from the parking lot or at the grocery store.

    but i'm not THAT in love with them to use them when i go out to the mall. maybe cos i have too many sandals already and hubby is already complaining i have too many shoes/sandals but don't seem to wear most of them!!

    hahahah. but once some of my sandals/shoes wear out, i might get some pretty flip flops to wear....

    mona, you're a baaaaad influence on me girl. i always seem to want to go shopping after reading about your stuff. hahahahhahahahahaha.

  7. I wear my sandals around the house too, that's why I bought them. Everyone loves them, even the kids...Rahmah's begging me to buy her a pair, lol! About flip flops and socks, I don't know, maybe because I have big feet but my feet are just not comfortable wearing normal socks with flip flops. I think if I got some of those neat five-toe socks, then I could probably pull of wearing flip flops with socks, lol!

  8. lol loved the poem! def. put a smile on my face :) if it were up to me i'd walk around barefoot or in a shib-shib alll day every day

  9. Kit Pryde, Oops, sorry!

    Asiya, Yea I have to pull the socks up a little to have room but I'm used to it.

    Eloquence, heh, Thanks! :)

  10. I love flipflops !! for me is the best Fashion trend ever ! as so many years back we wouldnt go out wear flipflops ! but since it was out , I couldnt stop it ! even if I soemtimes think it is not appropriate to wear them among some ppl / occassion/ ..but seems I just sometimes dont care and wear them though ! I dont know the brand you seem so fond of ! but I am generally with the Idea:)

  11. Batates_777, They really are so easy and comfy.

  12. I have the exact same ones and I love them!

  13. Marian, aren't they great!?
