The most important thing about a product is the kind of material used for its production. Usually, flip-flops are made of waterproof material that facilitates full protection and ease to one?s feet. Sometimes these flip-flops are made of recycled rubber, lowering the cost even more. Flip flops are available in a wide variety of materials such as leather, transparent plastic, rubber, wood, etc., and depending on the quality of material used, the prices also vary. Assorted flip-flops in vibrant colors with wide patent straps or buckles are readily available these days and can be changed when the mood strikes.
Cheap foreign brands, coming especially from China and Indonesia, have flooded the markets with inexpensive and attractive footwear which is light in weight, available in great variety, and comes in various sizes for kids, teenagers, women and men. The price and quality for such footwear is comparatively lower than other branded stuff from international designers, thus making it affordable and reliable. But while this scenario may look very sunny, not all cheap footwear is of good quality. The main reason behind this is that these products are usually mass-produced, and supply may not be durable. Such products tend to wear out quickly.
All said and done, for all those who would generally get bored wearing the same slippers over and over again, cheap flip-flops are the way to go. There are many fashion victims who would want a different pair everyday and for every purpose. Inexpensive flip-flops also fit into a history of flat shoes being popular in financial downtimes. When the budget is flat and the mood is flat it?s always easier to don a not too-high-fashiony look, and thus flat and cheap slippers are like finding the middle ground.
