Cheese Flip-flops / slippers

Cheese Flip-flops
Cheese Flip-flops

Surfers are likely to slip on their ordinary over-grinded flip-flops and sometimes cause severe injuries.
Cheese Flip-flops” are composed of materials constructed in a new form to increase friction against the ground. Just like cheese’s bubbles irregularly spread but evenly scatter over the whole cheese, the bubble s in the material of flip-flops constructs in the some way so they provide equal friction on each layer of flip-flops.
Another advantage of this design is that these bubbles help to thicken the bottle of flip-flops and reduce harms on foot.
