We encourage everyone to “Free Your Vibe” and that all starts from the ground up at Flip Flop Shops. Flip Flop Shops is the authentic retailer of the hottest brands and latest styles of flip flops and casual footwear. This is your opportunity to take part in one of the fastest growing and most exciting industries in the world. While flip flops and sandals might be some of the oldest styles of footwear known to humanity, they continue to remain the best-selling footwear worldwide!


Flip flops and casual resort footwear represent the bulk of our sales. Some of our more noteworthy brands are Birkenstock, Olukai, and Rainbow Sandals. However, we carry relaxed brands for the back to school season such as Crocs, Sperry and Vans. For the important Holiday season our shops also carry warm and fuzzy brands like BEARPAW, Minnetonka, REEF and other closed toe options. We work with our shops closely to introduce product lines that reflect seasonality and regionality.


Founded in 2004, Flip Flop Shops has been franchising since 2008. We have shops all over the world and continue to expand our footprint. Our management team is made up of Footwear Industry Veterans not just Franchisors. We have a long history of ordering, selling, and merchandising shoes. Under new ownership in June 2018 Flip Flop Shops aggressively has begun updating shops to evolve with the modern customer. Updates include mobile check out, updated interior design with a new material pallet and color scheme, and introductions of new brands and accessories.
