Do you care whether your flip flops are branded or not?

I don't care whether my flip flops are branded or not. I have branded flip flops, but I have some with no brands, too. As long as it feels comfortable and my feet loves them, so I'd go for it! There are times that I don't find it practical because most branded flip flops are so costly and I don't think it's worth it. So, when I buy I usually make sure that I'd be wearing them for a long time. How about you?

I don't, actually I'm not particular with brands for all my stuff as long as they're safe, comfortable, and fashionable.

I don't buy branded flip-flops. They are expensive. Instead of buying one, I can buy maybe 2 to 10 lip-flops already. It depends on the price though. LOL. So far, the ones I bought are comfortable to my feet.

That's just smart. haha. I just posted a comment awhile ago similar to what you just said. Yes, simple and comfortable is so much better than buying a very expensive flip flop.

I prefer branded one but since it is very costly I do have some that we called class A not that expensive but last for long as well. It is not really the brand it is the quality and as long as i am comfortable wearing it and fits good on me then be it.

actually i prefer branded things to common things but because branded things are very expensive i rare buy them. most things i have are middle quality things. they are not branded but the quality are good enough. the price is not too expensive but not cheap also. i should admit that i dont have new international branded things such as LV for bag or Reebok for shoes but i have second branded things. it means i bough those thing in second condition (after used). i bought them from someone who sell them online. the price is cheap enough of course cos it is second. i have Mango shirt, Adidas T-Shirt, Ralph Lauren overall, LeSportsac bag and some others. i only buy things in second condition only for branded things. i dont need tok be shy cos they are all in very good condition thoug they are second..

That's a smart choice. Very practical. I get what you mean when you say you prefer branded things because of the quality. Actually not all branded things are very expensive. There are some, but not all. Some branded stuff do get expensive because of the quality, so we can never blame them.

You are so funny. LOL Yes, i so agree. Most people are like that. They buy fake branded stuff just to show off. Actually, I find it funny. Some people, no matter what they use either branded or not, they still look good on them. While other people, no matter how much they use expensive stuff, I don't think they'll look as good as other people.lol That's so judgmental of me. Just kidding. But to be honest, yeah I salute people who really doesn't care whether the stuff they're using are branded or not as long as they're comfortable in it.

I agree with you. I am not the type of person who are buying and patronizing those so costly flip flops. Yes it is comfortable but my wallet will gonna cry if I'll buy it(just exaggerating).I am satisfied already with the cheap one as long as it is comfortable to wear.lol

Yeah. Being practical is important nowadays, since there are a lot of branded stuff. Most of the time, stuff that aren't branded are also good quality items. We just have to be smart enough to choose.

I think branded products are normally of a better quality. But it strongly depends on a brand. The most important thing is that your feet like what you wear whether branded or not.

Right! There are branded products that has a really good quality, so even though it's expensive, many will buy it. While there are branded stuff that depends on the name or brand, so yeah we really need to check whether it's worth it or not.

I haven't wore flip flops in many years. Used ot wear them an awful lot when I was a child. I only ever worn the cheap ones from the supermarket and if I was going ot wear a pair today I would buy them from the supermarket. Cheap and cheerful as my money needs to be spent on more important things for my children, ie food, bills etc

So true! When you already have a family, family comes first. You missed wearing one? I guess it's nice for you to treat yourself one pair of flip flop today. :)

I wear flip flops in my apartment year round and I have at least a dozen of them. I usually get them at the dollar store because their very cheap and not a brand name. If I want to have a nice pair to wear out in the summer I will get a brand name.

At least a dozen? Wow. That's just so smart. Buying cheap flip flops in order for you to have at least a dozen. :) Yeah, it's okay to treat yourself one branded flip flop one time. ;)

Nice to hear that. I guess all we need to check before buying is the quality and whether we're comfortable in it or not. No matter what the brand is, if we don't feel like using it, there's no use. Thanks for the response :)

I really don't care about brands as long as I love it and my feet is all comfortable with it. Other than that, for some reason, I really feel that it is a big waste of money spending on the footwear like flip flops for the brand name on it. The one's without brand names also are the same if you go for a quality one's. Branded one's are just costly and they charge you not only for the product that we buy, but also for using their brand names. I am also not a brand oriented person in clothings too. As long as I feel good and comfortable, I am okay with the clothes without the brand names too! I just don't like the feel of being a person who is tagged with brand names .

I agree with you. Branded items are much more expensive because of the name. I guess it's really impractical to buy those things if you can just buy more cheaper flip flops. You can buy like two or three pairs more compared to just one. Thanks for sharing your side!

I bought an expensive brand flip flops and found that they were more uncomfortable that the flip flops I bought at the Dollar Store. I don't pay attention to name brands anyways. Just buy what I like and what looks good on me. As far as flip flops - whatever is the most comfortable and I don't care if they only cost a dollar. And as long as they don't look too weird. Just a regular ol' flip flop. That is what I like and is comfortable. :)

I do not care if my flip flops are branded or not. What I care about is that they support my feet. I have bought more expensive flip flops and then gave them to my daughter. These flip flops were too narrow for my toes. My daughter has narrower feet than me, so I was glad they could fit her feet. We wear the same size shoe but she has more narrower feet than mine. I would like to find flip flops with arch support but will keep looking. In the meantime, I found that flip flops for the $1 store to be the most comfortable.

I don't really care for branded flip flops. I always buy what's practical, comfortable and affordable. I've never been much of a brand type of person. The flip flops I only wear at home. The ones I have are comfy, last longer, and looks good on feet.

I never cared for the brand when I shop, but if I can get a good deal for branded items of course I would not missed it. I shop what I think makes me comfortable and also affordable, branded item is not always the best but sometime it has better quality. I like hunting discounted product and last time we bought branded sandals because it was discounted 75% (as usual discounted product means it's old model or it has a little flaw in it) I know it might sound odd, but I like adding applique to my sandals so it won't look plain, it can hide the flaws of the flip flop or it won't show that my flip flop is not the latest model.

I hate flip-flops :D. The separator always hurts the skin on my foot, between my fingers... even after having it on for a minute just because of trying on. I wear slippers instead. I really don't care about the brand as long as it's comfortable and doesn't make my feet overly stinky because of the material.

i seldom wear or seek out branded clothing. you might say i am anti branding just because i refuse to bow down to these designers that mark up their wares upward of 100% just so you can be seen sporting their stuff.
