The Story

Ok so here’s how it goes…Chris grew up in landlocked Zim, not the most glamorous of places but plenty of cool stuff to do…He then left to study law in SA, returned back to Zim to show off his entrepreneurial spirit and then back to the shores of Cape Town to complete his articles, and then back to Zim, opened up a trading company, ventured into property, and did some law too…

Nick, too from Zim, packed his bags and headed to the Swiss alps, and after partying and having fun, got his Hotelier degree and headed to the Greek islands, ran a hotel there for a while, till he nearly went mad with all the hen parties, then packed again and headed back to Zim…

Nick, then has a Eureka moment calls Chris up and with that went their sanity…After years of sweat and toil, the boys finally make it big and boom the lights come on, launching the country’s pre-paid electricity project. And somewhere in between they launch the country’s first international men’s clothing brand…

Meanwhile, Elena’s living the dream, sun, sand and mojitos in the Med, in between long days wearing her law gown, she decides to visit Africa and BOOM, Chris steals her heart and blocks her escape…well not quite like that but after gathering millions of air miles convinces her, that sunny South Africa is just as good…

Chris then settles with Elena in SA, contemplating his next move…Elena misses her flip flops, the sea and 45 degree heat. Chris somewhere over the web stumbles over Flip Flop Shops, calls Nick and the three are headed to sunny California to meet Brian and Darin. After a pretty cool presentation, they say YES, all head to Javier’s , tequila on tap and thrash out the deal.

They head back to Africa, tell their friends and family who think they are crazy, find a store… Head back to not so sunny California meet the rest of the gang, attend Flip Flop Shops University, graduate, get given the thumbs up and back to SA to launch…

Months later first of FFS outside the Americas opens…. as the authentic retailer of the hottest brands and latest styles of flip flops and the first ever franchise of its kind.
