Flip Flop Shops celebrates Rainbow Founders Collection with surfing legend Gerry Lopez!

Jul 11th 2017

“Flip Flop Shops known for curating the hottest brands and latest casual footwear styles, collaborated with Rainbow Sandals on exclusive item. Guests got a first look with guest appearance and poster signing by surfing legend Gerry Lopez.”

Last Saturday we had the honor of hosting surfing legend Gerry Lopez at our Bend Oregon shop. It was a great event and thanks to all the fans who came out. Gerry Lopez signed posters along with his signature sandal. Flip Flop Shops also gave away prizes including an inflatable paddle board from Stand On Liquid and a SUP rental for two. Flip flops, beach blankets and a gift card from Brother Jons were also given away. It was a great party! People loved the new sandals and meeting surfing legend Gerry Lopez!

Flip Flop Shops’ most anticipated style of the year is set to release on July 14th, and Bend Oregon got an exclusive first look at it on July 1st. Known as the Founder’s Edition, the limited edition sandal was co-designed by Rainbow Sandals founder Jay "Sparky" Longley-size XL, and Brian Curin-size 10, an original founder of Flip Flop Shops. The sandal was inspired by the lines and design elements of classic wooden speedboats, pairing navy blue and beige pin striping on Rainbow’s popular Sierra brown premium nubuck leather.

Only 24 units were released in Bend for this pre-launch party and the exclusive SMU will not be retailed anywhere else; not even online!
