Gandys glitter flip flops

Gandys Flips Flops Arrive at Dolci Follie

When we first heard about Gandys flip flops, we immediately fell in love with the heartbreaking but inspiring story behind the company, and the uplifting ethos of the brand.

Gandys white leopard flip flops

The company was founded by two brothers, Rob and Paul, after coming up with the idea at a music festival. The brothers wanted to create something unique and driven by their personal passion after the tragic loss of their parents in the Boxing Day Tsunami whilst the family was travelling.

The pair tied in their “orphans for orphans” mission, which supports children in need of basic essentials such as nutrition, shelter and education, has already started to make an impact by funding children’s homes in India and Sri Lanka and the vision is to open them all around the world. With 10% of profits from every flip flop going towards the “Orphans for Orphans” mission, you can purchase with purpose whilst freeing your feet.

After starting in their small bedroom in Brixton, the company has captured many hearts with its inspiring story, and continues to grow.

Not only do we love the spirit of the brand, we also love the fun designs of the fantastic flip flops! For the wild at heart there’s the Leopard Print style, or for those looking for shimmer and shine and in the sun, there’s a gorgeous glittery range in pink, green, white and black!
