Much of what is fashionable is driven by celebrities. People seem hard-wired to play dress up and wear what they see their favorite headliners wear. Rainbow Sandals seems to know this well and have apparently created the Rainbow Mariner flip flop to elevate their brand and connect with celebrity fashion aware fans the world over. The celebrity from which Rainbow seems to have drawn inspiration is among the most recognizable in the world and has been marching to the beat if his own drum for decades.
The cobalt blue wide nylon straps and toe post, the jet-black footbed set above a two-toned slice of blue sandwiched at the midsole above the black outsole combine to create an instantly familiar flip flop. Placing just which celebrity icon it is may take some time to recall. But once recalled it is astoundingly obvious. Yes, these are the Energizer Bunny’s flip flops.
“To walk in these flip flops is a joy.”
As one would expect when drawing inspiration from such a world-renowned celebrity, Rainbow has spared no expense in their construction and has overlooked no detail in their creation. They’re incredibly comfortable and provide an ideal amount of arch support. The wide nylon straps hug the foot nicely and the confident treads include two types of siping among dozens of impressions of the word “Rainbow” scattered across the sole provide a self-assured grip on all surfaces.”
To walk in these flip flops is a joy.” A miles-long stroll is interrupted only by the thought… “still going.” These are, after all, the flip flops that kept that little pink bunny going and going and going.
e can only wonder from where Rainbow will draw inspiration for their next offer. Perhaps it’s time the world is given a Quaker Oats, Mr. Peanut, or Kool Aide Man inspired flip flop. Only time will tell.
