Old vs. New Friends!
This new pair is in "Expresso" with a thin strap and single layer. My old pair was "Dark Brown" with thick strap and double layer. I'm a fan of both kinds.
I won't be completely retiring my old pair, but after 5 years, I am starting to wear through the soles. And I want to get the swine flu in style when I'm vacationing in Mexico in a few weeks.
....Or if my highly anticipated vacation is completely cancelled, at least I'll have a new pair of flip flops. Because that's just as exciting as a week in Mexico, right?
On a side note: if you have not gotten yourself a pair of Rainbows, I highly recommend them. Highly. They are expensive, but when they're the only pair of shoes you'll need to wear from March-October for many, many years, it's worth the price. The first couple of weeks are torture for first-time wearers, but then you'll have 5+ years of flip flop heaven. www.rainbowsandals.com
