Miami, FL (PressExposure) December 30, 2007 -- Have you ever worn a flip flop sandal imprinted with a gaggle of ackees (the colorful national fruit of Jamaica)? Enter JAMFLIPS, a new flip flop sandal design company based in Miami, Florida and specializing in sandals bearing unique Caribbean motifs and themes. The flagship design: the ackee-delite is a colorful cacophony of the interesting national fruit of Jamaica. The company has been under development for over 3 years, and is the brainchild of a locally-based family of Jamaican heritage who call themselves "the connoisseurs of flip flops".
JAMFLIPS designs flip flop sandals which are comfortable, flexible, trendy and unique. Designs are individually crafted by local graphic artists and depict various indigenous Caribbean colors, symbols, fruits and flowers
Flip flop sandals from JAMFLIPS are colorful, eye catching and trendy yet reasonably priced. The comfort is due to a cushioning layer of "expanded" EVA on the sole that allows for flexibility and softness. No sharp, uncomfortable edges on the thongs of these flip flops, which also have 1 inch soles, thicker than the average sandal. Sandals come individually wrapped in a designer poly bag, and have styrofoam toe wedges to prevent crushing and distortion of the thongs during shipment. JAMFLIPS sandals make great gifts, especially for visitors to tourist and resort areas, and can transition from everyday wear at home, to going out for an evening of fun.
JAMFLIPS sandals are now available on-line and will also be available to the public at select boutiques and gift stores in South Florida and Jamaica and through independent sales reps and distributors. Marketing via a network of independent, commission-based sales reps within the Caribbean community will be a unique distribution method for JAMFLIPS. The company will support and sponsor Jamaican and Caribbean charities and fundraising organizations as part of its strong West Indian heritage. The dialysis unit of the University of the West Indies in Jamaica will be one of the first organizations to which JAMFLIPS will donate part proceeds of retail sales of its sandals.
JAMFLIPS is a family-owned and -operated company which designs and imports unique, comfortable Caribbean-themed flip flop sandals. The company will help to support treatment of Jamaican patients with kidney failure.
