The classic cooks flip flop with our signature extended toe thong. A slightly raised heel and firm arch support create a smooth flowing rocker. The heel shim runs from the heel all the way to the ball of the foot, providing just enough extra cushion where needed most but keeping the toe box thin and responsive. This also creates an extra strong toe box eliminating delamination and a clunky feeling up front. Checkered rubber outsole provides excellent grip in all the steep situations.

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.
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.
