Rubber flip-flops are the most common kind of flip-flops in our daily life. But what is the origin of rubber flip-flops?
Flip-flops were first recorded in the Han dynasty. Dongfangshuo "Trivial language" had recorded: "In the Spring and Autumn Period, Jiezhi fled from his fortune and died holding a tree. Then he regarded it as clogs". The first slippers were made of wood, so the wooden slippers were also called "clogs", "pull boards" or "gutta boards". "Gutta boards" was first prevalent in the Northern and Southern Dynasties of China. Xie Lingyun once transformed it, so it is also called "Xie Gongqiao". Li Bai's phrase "On Xie Gongqiao's foot, climbing the green ladder" in "Tianmu mountain ascended in a dream" refers to this wooden flip-flop slipper. Jia Baoyu often wears these slippers in Dream of Red Mansions. As for how the clogs drifted across the sea to Japan, it is not clear.
In the 1950s, the first pair of plastic "slippers" appeared in France, which also meat that human beings began to enter a new era of slippers.
In recent years, with the continuous expansion of people's functions of flip-flops, many concepts have emerged, such as air-conditioning slippers, bathing slippers, beach slippers, health slippers, fashion slippers, bedroom slippers, rubber flip flops
and so on. These colorful flip-flops, like elegant and unrestrained leisure scenery, create unlimited romantic summer interest.
