Founders Edition - Single Layer Arch Sierra Brown with Navy Blue Stripes 1" Strap

The Founders Edition is the final product from two great men with an idea to bring back that nostalgic feeling of hanging out on the classic old boat deck, sun in your face, hair in the wind - that kick your feet up and smell the salt in the air kind of feeling. They nailed it!

It only took a few attempts but when they completed this one they knew they had created the perfect sandal. Founder Jay “Sparky” Longley and Flip Flop Shops Founder Brian Curin worked together on an idea, to create a sandal that gave a feeling, brought back a memory also knowing that so many more memories will be created while wearing the Founders Edition.

After a year of exclusive selling in stores at The Flip Flop Shops, Rainbow® Sandals is excited to release the nostalgia on our website and in our factory outlet in San Clemente.
