Cariloha Adds Bamboo Flip-Flops to All-Bamboo Product Mix

Cariloha’s bamboo flip-flops are final step toward a full head-to-toe bamboo wardrobe.

SANDY, UTAH – This week Cariloha introduced its new bamboo-based flip-flop line to its 30 international Cariloha stores and growing worldwide clientele, thus helping to round out the Cariloha bamboo product mix even further.

Named after some of Cariloha staffers’ favorite Caribbean and Hawaiian beaches, Cariloha’s new bamboo flip-flops were designed to provide durable, built-to-last quality with a hint of eco-friendly, ultra-soft bamboo. Yes, there is a Cariloha store near all of the beaches that these flip-flops are named after.

“Our bamboo flip-flops put the finishing touch on a full head-to-toe bamboo wardrobe,” said Aaron Hobson, Cariloha Executive VP of Marketing. “Some flip-flops have bamboo straps and a leather footbed, while others have bamboo straps and a bamboo footbed.”

Because improper footwear can cause unnecessary back pain, Cariloha flip-flops feature anatomically correct arch support, heel contouring, and toe posts – not only for improved comfort, but also for your posture and health.

All Cariloha bamboo flip-flops have a TPR outsole (the bottom part), which helps ensure the flip-flops will have long-term durability. Cariloha flip-flops are measured in U.S. shoe sizes, ranging from adult size 8 to 13. The bamboo flip-flops’ in-store retail pricing ranges between $29 and $44.

Bamboo Flip-Flop Specifics – What customers will get from Cariloha bamboo flip-flops:
• Thick, durable outsole and soft, compression-molding footbeds.
• Anatomically correct arch support, heel contour, and toe post for extreme wearing comfort.
• Soft bamboo-fabric or leather footbeds with contrast stitching or stylish patterning.
• Ultra-soft, comfortable bamboo straps on all flip-flop styles and comfy bamboo-fabric footbeds on select styles.

Three Good Reasons Why these Bamboo Flip-Flops Should Be on Customers’ Feet
1. Bamboo flip-flops are a good footwear option on a cruise ship. Why put on shoes if you’re going to take them off again as soon as you get to the pool or the hot tub? Flip-flops are faster and much more comfortable.
2. You can do almost any activity in flip-flops, but especially if you’re a customer who enjoys going to the beach or swimming.
3. Take care of your feet with bamboo comfort, and your feet will take care of you.

Cariloha bamboo headbands are only available at Cariloha stores for the time being. The Cariloha corporate team plans to make them available online by February 2013.
