A summer in San Diego in 2000 : an unusual encounter between a man and a vintage flip flop…

Love at first sight for this 1958 flip flop at the origin of all the other rubber flip flops which will follow it but without being able to match.

The original model was one color (blue strap and bicolor soles in off-white and coconut brown), with a wave pattern on the strap and a brick pattern on the sole. Six decades later, Beach Originals is born :

  • the design of strap and sole remains identical to the original one.
  • 17 strap colors introduced while keeping the original blue as iconic color of the range.
  • a new thinner shaped strap & sole designed for women.
  • a new model : “Flatform” with 2,5 cm sole height
  • improved composition of sole affording greater comfort.

Legacy of the first rubber flip flops created in California in the late 50’s, Beach Originals revives this iconic model giving styles and code of that period as well as the highest level of comfort.

A story,

a mythical era,

an iconic & vintage style !

women and men’s models available in 17 exclusive colorways

Beach Originals is using a combination of RUBBER (70%) and EVA (30%) in the manufacturing of the sole for greatest comfort and durability :

Soft and resistant, the rubber allows durability, thermal insolation and is water resistant.

Light and flexible, EVA provides softness, shock absorption and ultra lightweight feel !

The materials used in the manufacturing of the Beach Originals flip flops are recyclable.

Inspired by more than 60 years of outerwear heritage…

The wave pattern on the strap and the brick pattern on the sole are directly inspired from the design of the first flip flop dating back to the late 50’s.

Combined with the vintage colors of the strap and the bicolor sole, it gives the Beach Originals a retro, elegant and stylish sandal, distinctive features & ADN of the brand.
