Summer is right around the corner, and if you’re one who hates crowded toes and sweaty feet, we’ve got a great set of flip flops  that will help your tootsies beat the heat. FlyingFlips , a new project launched by a couple of Vancouverites, is an innovative ecommerce platform that lets shoppers vote for the sandal designs they’d most like to see on their feet. Winning designs are then manufactured and sold, and FlyingFlips not only gives a portion of the sales to the artists who’ve created the designs, but they also offer up a pair of flips to a fellow human in need! Check out their Kickstarter campaign  and make a donation to get a pair of your own.
