Waves Natural Rubber Flip Flops

Flip flops have long been a firm footwear favourite. Although you may not realise it they often contain man made petroleum based rubber and plastics such as EVA, BPA & polyurethane. As well as polluting our oceans, these materials can be less comfortable than natural rubber.

Our natural rubber flip flops are made from natural rubber and are designed with both your feet and the planet in mind. The natural rubber means our flip flops contain Zero Plastic! Available in men’s, women’s, and unisex designs, we offer an ethical flip flop alternative for everyone. That means you can look after your planet while still enjoying your favourite footwear.

Our Flip Flops won’t leave you strapless this summer

Fed up of throwing poor quality flip flops away at the end of every summer? The natural rubber in our toe straps has high tensile strength meaning they are unlikely to crack, snap or pop out unlike the synthetic straps found on other flip flops! With our soles, you may find they wear differently due to the natural elasticity in our rubber versus synthetics, therefore, overtime they may compact or mould down in different areas depending on your gait or pronation. It is the natural rubber properties that provide all round benefits for both your feet and the environment.
