When Flip Flop Shops President Brian Curin attended the Kokua music Festival in Hawaii last spring, he knew he had found the musical embodiment of the Flip Flop Shops brand as soon as Go Jimmy Go took the stage.
Curin was an immediate fan of the Hawaiian-based band’s island sound â€“ an infectious blend of reggae rhythms and cool, original melodies. In an opportune twist of fate, Go Jimmy Go band member Eric White expressed his excitement for Flip Flop Shops and interest in recording a tribute song for the nation’s first retail chain exclusive to flip flops and sandals. The song, “Flip Flop,” will be playing in Flip Flop Shops boutiques throughout North America, and on the Web site. Lucky fans may even hear it on the next Go Jimmy Go album.
“We dig the Free Your Toes movement that Flip Flop Shops promotes,” said White. “Flip flops represent our laid-back, fun-loving island attitude and we are extremely excited to have our music heard by millions of consumers who are just as passionate about freeing their toes as we are.”
