Shibshibi Logo

When flip-flops first became the go to beach footwear maybe 10 years ago, I thought, Egypt is flip-flop haven known for our green zanouba.  Ten years later Shibshibi, ‘my flip flop’ in Arabic, was launched by design team Sara Hamza, Dina Naguib, and Nadia Ahmed.  The tagline of their collection is “a unique fusion between oriental and modern footwear design; a real touch of contemporary with a glimpse of our ancestors patterns that makes SHIBSHIBI® a unique combination for everyday use”.

I have to admit I got bored of the Havaianas and other brands of flip-flops and am eager to get my hands on pair of creatively designed Shibshibi’s. The only worry is that the designs get repetitive so I hope the team keep coming up with ideas, keeping their collection innovative.  I am thinking along the lines of his and hers or bridal and bridesmaids flip-flops to be worn at weddings (at the end of the night of course!).  

Below are pictures of my favorites so far.
