PITTSBURGH, PA (PRWEB) November 30, 2015
It probably would be difficult to find many shoe closets that do not contain a pair of flip flops. Despite their universal popularity, they still produce an annoying sound as they flap against the foot. What’s more, they have an equally irritating habit of slipping off the foot. Fortunately, an inventor from Camden, N.J., has found a way to resolve these issues.
He developed a prototype for the patent-pending FLOP STOP to provide a more secure fit for flip flops. As such, it keeps the shoe from falling off. Therefore, it prevents injuries from slipping and falling. At the same time, it affords a more comfortable feeling than that provided by standard flip flops. This novel accessory actually converts a conventional flip flop to a sandal. It is also, convenient, safe and affordably priced. In addition, it is attractive, effective and lightweight.
The inventor’s personal experience inspired the idea. “Although I’ve worn flip flops often because they are so easy to wear and require no care, I found them somewhat uncomfortable and didn’t like the sound they made when I walked. So I decided to modify them to address those issues,” he said.
The original design was submitted to the Philadelphia office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
