Never blow-out your thongs again, thanks to this Aussie company

Thongs, flip-flops, sandals, jandals – whatever you want to call them, Gold Coast-based company Willi Footwear has found a simple but witty design solution to prevent blow-outs.

You know how it feels. You’re casually walking in your flip-flops then suddenly – pop – one your footwear’s straps come loose, putting you in an embarrassing situation. The company has designed a patented boomerang-shaped plug that prevents those blowouts from ever happening again.

With a plug that’s shaped like a boomerang rather than a circle, the strap becomes more resistant to wear and tear, and doesn’t easily slip out of its slot. The boomerang design also allows wearers to remove the strap with ease, allowing them to interchange colours – choose from four different coloured bases and six different coloured straps, giving 24 colour combinations.
