DIY: How To Fix A Broken Sandal

how to fix a broken flip flop
If you’re a fan of the rubber flip flop, you know that blow-outs are inevitable at some point of said flip flop’s lifespan. And as experience tells us, major breaks rarely happen when you’re flopping around the house or on a nice soft-sand beach. Nope. They happen when it’s 100 degrees out and you have to traverse boulders before walking home on scorching asphalt…up hill, both ways.
