What Are Jandals?

Jandals or flip-flops, also known as thongs, are open-toed sandals featuring a Y-shaped strap that fits between the toes. Lightweight, affordable, and effortlessly wearable, they're a popular choice for casual attire, particularly in warmer climates such as New Zealand.

Although jandals are ubiquitous today, their origins trace back 100 years. Initially crafted from materials like papyrus, these sandals find their roots in ancient Egypt, where they provided protection from scorching sands and rugged terrain for both men and women.

Throughout history, jandals underwent transformations, with each culture infusing its unique flair into the design. Japan introduced zori, akin to flip-flops but distinguished by thicker soles and materials like rice straw and tatami.

In the 1960s, Brazil birthed the Havaianas flip flop, famed for its rubber sole and recycled material straps, evolving into a globally recognised brand that it is today. Concurrently, jandals gained traction in the United States during the 1950s and 1960s, coinciding with increased travel to tropical destinations.

Renowned for their simplicity and affordability, jandals remain a go-to choice for beach enthusiasts and travelers worldwide. Available in an array of styles and materials, from basic rubber to luxe leather, they continue to charm people of all ages and backgrounds, whether lounging poolside, running errands, or simply basking in the sunshine.
