Dawgs Bendable Flip Flops Review

Price and Where to Buy Dawgs Bendable Flip Flops: $10 from Amazon

Pros: These flip flops fold up small and come with their own carrying case, making them a practical take-along solution to shoe fatigue. They come in five colors and are fairly comfortable. The cushioning foam insole and rubber outsole offer more comfort and stability than the average flip flop. And they look nice enough to be a respectable late-in-the-evening backup for dressier shoes.

Cons: They run small, so you’ll need to size up for a comfortable fit. Because they’re made of sturdy materials, they’re also slightly heavier than you might expect. And unless you already spend your life in flip flops, they’re probably not a great walking shoe for general use.

How Dawgs Bendable Flip Flops Rate:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Stashing a pair of well-made flip flops in a bag is a great solve for sore feet at the end of a day.
  • Value: 9/10. As a sandal-alternative to roll-up flats, the pricing is great.
  • Durability: 9/10. In our tests, these shoes withstood being folded, stashed, and unfolded dozens of times. And the rubber outsole offered more traction and stability than you’d expect in a flip flop.
  • Cool Factor: 9/10. This is about as close to elegant as a flip flop can get. And the stash-and-go feature means you can travel with a shoe alternative without getting foot germs all over your bag.

Final Verdict: These flip flops are attractive, well-made, and stash easily and hygienically.
