The Flojos history
Flojos®, recognized as one of the top sandal manufacturers in the world, is a name synonymous with the active, California beach lifestyle. Flojos® (pronounced flo-hos, meaning “kick back” in Spanish) specializes in beach, fashion and sport sandals for women, men and children, with a focus on comfort, style and affordable prices.
Flojos® established itself as a force in the U.S. sandal arena in 1979, with the introduction of the original Flojos, a popular rubber criss-cross sandal. The original Flojos style was borrowed from a traditional design from the Mexican culture, a style that has been a favorite among fisherman, surfers and beachcombers since the 1940’s. Recently, the Original Flojos and other Flojos® styles alike have been making resurgence, showing up on beaches as well as city streets.
All Flojos® flip flops are designed with attention to detail and comfort, with materials including top quality leather, nylon, rubber and canvas. Most Flojos® sandals are perfect for a walk on the beach, but some women’s styles are elaborately trimmed with beads and sequins—the perfect accessory for a night out on the town.
For the past several years, Flojos® has placed a large emphasis on its women’s line of casual sandals, enjoying record sales in this category. Flojos® gives women many choices, with styles from platforms to flats, thongs to slides, with colors ranging from basic whites to vivid brights and details such as sequins, beads, and seashells. In all, there are more than 90 styles to choose from.
The men’s line Flojos®, which originated with the Original Flojos and Toejos rubber sandals more than 20 years ago, now runs the gamut from the basic rubber sandal to leather sandals, sport sandals, fashion sandals.
Children’s Flojos® include sandals for girls and boys, with styles that emulate the women and men’s lines. Most of the kids’ sandals offer a smaller version of what can be found in the women’s and men’s lines. The little women’s line especially offers the more colorful and fun sandal designs.
