Introduction: How to Make Your Flip Flops Better

this shows you how to make your flip flops more comfortable and better

Step 1: 1

Old navy had a sale on flip flops so I got me a pair but they rubbed my feet and I started to get a bruise so I fixed them

Get all your materials
1.flip flops
2.string
3. tape (optional)
now for the tools
1.knife
2.lighter
3.a long stick or some thing (optional but helpful)

Step 2: 2

so get your flip flops and cut off the rubber straps

Step 3: 3

now push one end of the string into one of the bottom holes and tie a knot

Step 4: 4

now make a U in the rope and push it threw but do not tie it

Step 5: 5

now push the rope threw the last hole and stick you foot inside it and adjust it to your liking

Step 6: 6

now tie the rest of the knots(try to make them small but knot too small) you may need to readjust after you make the knots and cut off all the extra rope

Step 7: 7

now take the lighter and heat up your knots and ether press them to the ground or wet your hand and press them to make that knot flatter

Step 8: 8

now you have better more comfortable flip flops are finished
optional step: take the tape and wrap it around the front strings that you made
if you have any tips or comments I would love to hear them

I used a Matthew Walker knot for the Y on top of my foot. Then I used a separate piece of paracord and made a heel strap. They worked pretty good till someone's stupid Basset Hound chewed them up.
