We've been getting the question of what we do with our seconds from many of you so I figured I'd write up a few quick words on the afterlife of a second quality Common Soles flip-flop.
Any seconds, or flip-flops which are made in our factory and don't pass our quality tests are either: 1) disassembled and re-made into new flips, 2) given to whomever is standing there at the moment who may want them..., or 3) donated to Soles 4 Souls (only if they are deemed wearable, with minor cosmetic flaws only) .
Soles 4 Souls is a great not-for-profit organization; leveraging a strong network of "givers" they have distributed over 10 million pairs of footwear to date! Typically pairs are donated by forward thinking footwear brands from companies such as Common Soles! As the folks at Soles 4 Souls put it: "we get shoes and give them away to those who need them".
