Giveaway & Review: Switchflops! (CLOSED)

"Change your look, not your sole"

I can't wait to tell you about this new product. Switchflops by Lindsay Phillips are an amazing new product that will save you time, energy and closet space. How can a pair of flip flops do that? Switchflops are a versatile flip flop sandal with interchangeable straps that attach to the top of the flip flop strap by velcro! So these cute little polka dotted straps can change to basic back in about a minute and a half! Seriously! Just peel off the v shaped top strap and attach a different top for an entirely new look! I was so excited when the lovely people at Lindsay Phillips/Switchflops sent me the Lulu in Black and the Gayle Strap to try out!

Now, I will tell you right now that before I even tried these babies on I was already sold on the idea. If you're going on a trip, think of how much simpler it would be to pack one pair of sandals and a few different pairs of straps and still have shoes to match every outfit! And they are so comfortable! When the box arrived, I literally kicked off my cheapo flip flops and was amazed at the difference in support! Switchflops are available in a variety of colors, styles and heel heights. Some are dressier, and some are more laid back. And all straps are interchangeable with each other! And they are more than 70 solid or printed straps to choose from, including stripes, animal prints - they even have a bridal collection!

Overall, the best part about Switchflops are they are reasonably priced and made from quality materials. I'm the type of person that chooses quality over quantity- and these shoes definitely fit the bill! The straps themselves come on a thin hanger so they are easy to take with you, toss in your bag (or heck, your glove box for a quick change!)
The best, and most interesting thing about this product? Lindsay Phillips came up with the idea while she was in high school - they actually stemmed from a high school art project! Amazing!

I just wanted to say that Heather from ClosetCravings sent me nd I just love your blog. I am all about the coupons and fashion. So thank you for combining the two! :)

I already own these and several of the straps. They are simply AWESOME, comfortable, and so versatile. These are awesome for us couponers that love good deals. Instead of buying new shoes, just buy new straps. ;)

I like the Taylor in black but i also would really like the regulat flip flop lulu (i think). I liked some of the more decorative straps like mckenzie or vivi since I don't usually buy fancy flip flops.
