Why the long toe thong, you say?  When you lengthen the toe thong of a flip flop you position what we like to call the "fulcrum", the place at which the straps meet and flex, closer to the arch of the foot.  By doing this you decrease a large amount of flop and tighten the straps around the center of your foot, reducing the amount of work your toes experience. The result is a more snug fit, relaxed muscles of the arch, and a real A+100 for people who like great flip flops.  

Cooks Custom Scratch Cork! What is that? Well, it's actually not cork at all. In Mexico many factories collect their leather and wood scrap. In this case our scratch is a mix of wood and leather shavings formed into a sheet and cut into foot beds.  We love its performance as it keeps tight grip in slimy situations, dries immediately, and is really tough.  It has the feeling of soft, granular cork.  

Shower with a friend! Got Dirt Problems? Cooks flops are ready to be shower friendly and are happy to be scrubbed with an old tooth brush.   Freshen that strap liner up, scrub that thong.  Mud and Marsh approved. Don't fret about getting that leather muddy or wet. This tough as dirt leather will look amazing with time. 

More on that custom Zig Zag liner.   A tribute to our old handmade flops we put together in the barn using a 1960"s Alphasew ZigZag machine.  We love that look so much so we refined it and rolled with it.  The straps are lengths cut from cotton and Jute rolls run through a zigzag machine creating a strong and organic seamless strap which is then sewn to leather. Soft and durable, these straps become bomb proof when backed with leather.

Best flips ever!!

Wanted to send y'all a message saying thanks for making the best flips ever! After more than 5 years, trips to India and Mexico, and across America 6 times, my toe thongs have given out after giving me absolutely everything they had. I've just received my new pair and they are even better! I'm eagerly looking forward to many more years avoiding the awful feet prisons that are shoes and socks. Thanks again and keep up the good work!
