The bubble gum popping sound of your flip-flops and the scent of baby oil are the essence of summer. After many months of cramming pristinely-pedi’d toes into boots, clogs and other winter ensembles, it’s time to embrace the summer season and celebrate National Flip-Flop Day (June 21)! And, it is so apropos that this commemorative holiday falls on none other than the Summer Soltice. Whether your flips are rubber, patent, leather or bejeweled, these ageless sandals have been worn by fashionistas in many cultures, as far back as 4,000 B.C.
