I have recently joined ‘whatsgoodtodo’ and the first product review that came up to apply for was for a pair of ‘Telic Energy Flip Flops’. I had never heard of this brand before, but I was excited and secretly hoping to be chosen, as my current flip flops had just collapsed and was just about to purchase a new pair, which I dreaded doing as I found some brands to be so uncomfortable and hurt my feet. Anyway, thankfully I was picked to try them out and I certainly was not disappointed.
Telic are a brand that provide footwear to adults and children and they are doctor recommended, are approved by athletes and they offer a six-month manufacturer’s warranty on all footwear.
The website, www.telic.com, claim that their footwear has:
Supportive, shock absorbing, and feather-light; Telic footwear makes you feel like you are floating above the ground. The textured footbed provides a gentle massaging effect while minimizing moisture and allowing a cooling air flow under the foot.
The material reacts to your body temperature to give your feet a hug as they conform perfectly to your personal shape. The contoured footbed and orthotic-grade arch support lead to a complete underfoot coverage that evenly distributes the weight of the body; eliminating pressure points under the foot.
Telic Footwear’s Novalon Footstrike technology is soft and supportive, with an energizing propulsion that cradles and guides the foot.
When looking at the website, I found that the ‘Telic Energy Flip Flops’ come in a variety of colours and are suitable for men and women to wear. I was worried at first when selecting my size as I have wide feet, but I needn’t have worried as the size guide is easy to follow and I found they were true to size and fitted my feet perfectly.
When I received my parcel, I found that flip flops don’t come in a box but were wrapped in pretty tissue paper. I opened them to find out that my first choice of colour was not available (Editor’s note – as can sometimes happen with review samples), so I had been sent the dark cherry colour. At first, I was a little disappointed as I’d been looking forward to the ‘Forbidden Fuchsia’ ones but once I tried them on, I found that the colour was actually fantastic as it was very versatile, and the colour went with many of my summer clothes.
I have been wearing the flip flops around the house and when I go out for the past week so far and they provide excellent support to my feet. The arch in each one helps to massage my feet so that by the end of the day my feet don’t end up aching like so many other brands. I have found that everything they claim about their flip flops is true and it is just like walking on air. I particularly like that the thong is moulded on the bed of the flip flop and in my opinion, this helps it not rub the toes like so many other flip flops do. It also keeps the flip flop sturdy as there is no chance of it coming loose.
The flip flops are slightly more expensive than I would normally pay for a pair approx. £40 ($49) but they are certainly worth the money.
Overall, I have found the Telic Energy Flip Flops to be well-made, durable, versatile and the most comfortable flip flops I have ever worn, and I will certainly be purchasing another pair very soon. I can highly recommend these to anyone of any age.
Price: approx £49.00
