Story of Heritage

San Diego 1980: An unusual encounter between a man and a genuine vintage flip flop… Love at first sight for this unique model dated 1958 at the origin of all the other flip flops which will follow it but without being able to match.

Heritage of the first natural rubber flip flops worn by Californian surfers in the late 50’s, Beach Originals makes revive this Iconic model with all stylistic codes of that period while ensuring the greatest comfort (softness and lightness of the sole).

Light, soft, comfortable, resistant and recyclable

Beach Originals is using a right combination of rubber and EVA in the manufacturing of the sole for more durability and highest comfort:

Soft and resistant, the rubber allows a great durability, a perfect thermal insolation as well as water resistance.

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

All the materials used in the manufacturing of the Beach Originals flip flops are 100% recyclable.

The right materials

The “wave” motif of the strap and the “brick” motif of the sole are directly inspired from the designs of the first flip flops dating back to the late 50’s.

Combined with the lightly faded colours of the same era, it gives to Beach Originals the vintage and elegant touch of style, distinctive features of the brand.
