How do you decide between wearing flip-flop and shoe? Probably flip-flop for freedom and shoe if you need protection, or for walking that extra mile. What if there’s a pair of footwear that does both? Meaning it has the convenience offered by flip-flop but also has the protection of a shoe? Well, believe it or not, such shoe does exists, and it is called Link Flip-Shoe. And it feels totally like future fashion, or at least it is with respect to footwear.
Link-Shoe is sole-based shoe created with an innovative shoe patent that hugs your feet snugly and securely. You can wear Link-Shoe to work, to shopping to skateboarding and even to the pool. Link-Shoe features a ventilated design like flip-flop while offering support of shoes, namely, arch support, and protection to your toes from, you know, being smashed.
Furthermore, Link-Shoe also touts EVA cushioning material with anti-odor and anti-bacterial properties, and a wear resistance and grippy outsole. More interestingly, it is also the first ever shoe to provide a true division to parts that mimic foot joints, thus making walking in Link-Shoe natural. Finally, it has a hard TPU midsole to enable a custom foot grip.
With such a future-forward, avant-garde proposition, I am frankly surprised that its Indiegogo fixed goal campaign hasn’t garner more traction. Speaking of which, if you want a pair, you pre-order it on Indiegogo for $69-79. The campaign has already met its $12,500 funding goal and so, Link Flip-Shoe is a go. If all goes as planned, you should be seeing this unique footwear sometime in November 2019. Continue reading to catch the campaign pitch video to learn more.
