The official footwear for Arizonan kids might as well be the flip-flop, since nothing else is easier or more comfortable to slip on when it’s 100-plus degrees outside. But before grabbing a plain, old, worn-out pair as you head out the door, put some style into your kid’s step with our fabulous find of the month: Snazzy Dazzy Flip Flops.
Snazzy Dazzy Flip Flops are not your ordinary summer footwear. Owner and creator Kristina of Surprise embellishes her designs with ribbons, bows, beads, buttons, decorated bottle caps and other materials based around a particular theme, such as Disney characters, sports or popular trends. The flips can also be customized to accompany a special dress, support a particular school or team, or advertise a company or product. The possibilities are endless.
“We have customers who pick their own images or photos and send them to us,” says Kristina. “Direct sales leaders will even purchase flip-flops with their company’s logo and give them to their teams to wear at conventions.”
To coordinate the look from head to toe, Snazzy Dazzy also offers hair bows, sunglasses, necklaces and bracelets. Moms can also get in on the fun with matching adult sizes. Toddler and kid sizes cost $12 per pair, and adult sizes are $14. Satin wrapped flips run for $22. Custom hair bows are $5 with a choice of barrette or alligator clip. Group discounts are offered on large orders.
Kristina runs auctions on the company’s Facebook page every Monday and Friday, offering featured products at reduced prices. Items can be purchased on both Facebook and on Etsy with a turnaround time of about three to four business days before shipping. Shipping is an additional three to five days unless you request and pay for priority shipping.
So give your kid’s tootsies some pizazz this summer with Snazzy Dazzy Flip Flops. They will definitely thank you!
