Grass Flip Flops from Krispy Kreme!

Here’s the most comfortable looking flip flops branded as Krispy Kreme.  I have no idea why anyone would make these for the donut conglomerate but it sure looks comfortable and I might have to get one to test out against my current bamboo flip flops.

It’s probably a PR stunt by Krispy Kreme but I do like the fact that you can grow grass on your flip flops while having to enjoy them.

Think of it this way, you get to go outside for a walk in the grass without actually going anywhere.

Krispy Kreme questioned over 1,000 UK workers and found that over half (53 per cent) of urbanites believe their stress levels are affected by a lack of contact with Mother Nature. In response to the problem Krispy Kreme has created the world’s first grass flip-flops to bring summer magic to the city – giving stressed out workers a (literal) spring in their step by creating an instant grassy park underneath their feet regardless of their urban location.

The al fresco flip-flops take up to three weeks to grow and each shoe is covered with over 5,000 blades of grass. If watered regularly the unique footwear can remain in season for over four months – meaning they are the perfect, head-turning summer-accessory for stressed-out men and women.
