In the 1960s, the flip-flop was a practical shoe worn by the working-class and was only made in a blue-and-white design. Travelling merchants sold them from the back of their vans. Variations in colour and design are claimed to have all started serendipitously in 1969 when one batch of flip-flops came out to be green and suddenly gained popularity.
