Style

Style

The Fluffie li is a super cute summer sandal. Its flip-flop design means hassle-free wear so you can get out and go without having to fuss over your footwear. The Fluffie li is as stylish as it is unique thanks to its metal UGG rivet and its woven label on the footbed. You're sure to steal the show poolside while wearing a pair of these fun summer shoes and will find them effortless to match with all of your go-to summer attire.
Lining

Lining

Have you ever found your feet get a little chilly after stepping out of the pool? Maybe you've dreamed of a warmer pair of flip-flops? Well, this flip-flop is the answer to your prayers! These one-of-a-kind designs offer a sheepskin lined footbed that’s oh so chic and cozy. Its 10 mm of ultra plush sheepskin fluff help to keep your tootsies a little warmer and makes them totally comfortable to wear. The downside to this lining material is that it's made from genuine sheepskin which some ladies might find a little offputting. The fur is sourced from sheep or lamb and comes from Australia, Ireland, the United Kingdom, or the United States. It's later dyed and treated before being sold.
Straps

Straps

These sandals have a super flexible and ultra comfy TPU strap that makes them even more enjoyable to wear. Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is a plastic material that’s noted for its elasticity, transparency, and durability. This is the perfect choice of material for fun in the sun and is great for splashing around surfside thanks to its water-resistant structure that won't break down with repeated contact with water. TPU is an excellent material for summer sandals because it's lightweight and has high transparency which means it can easily be dyed to any color.
Sole

Sole

This sandal has a great sole for walking on wet or slippery surfaces! It’s made from rubber which is one of the best choices for water-related wear because it’s anti-slip. This means that you will be safer while frolicking poolside because you won’t have to worry as much about accidental slips or falls. Some sole materials just don’t cut it when it comes to grip and traction, but this flip-flop offers the perfect underside for wearing while you’re at the pool or for splashing surfside while you’re at the beach. This pair is non-marking which means that they won’t scuff or mark floors so you don’t have to take your shoes off just to walk across tiled surfaces. This comes in handy when you’re showering after a long swim because you won’t damage the tiles in the shower room.
Fit

Fit

As we all know, fur isn’t the best material when it gets wet! This makes the Fluffie’s sheepskin footbed kind of counterproductive because these sandals were made to wear by the pool or while you’re at the beach. Of course, when fur gets wet it can become uncomfortable and soggy which is why it’s important to fully dry off your feet before stepping into these flip-flops. This can be annoying, especially when you’re trying to get out of the pool quickly and don’t feel like taking the time to sit there drying off your feet. That’s not the only downside to their furry footbed though! When it’s hot outside the fur can actually make your feet sweat which in turn can ruin the sheepskin making it less than appealing to wear. These sandals might be best kept for those days when it’s not scorching hot outside because otherwise, you might find yourself looking like a hot mess
Colors

Colors

These funloving flip flops come in an array of colorways that make them easy to match with the outfit of the day. Choose from looks like Sweet Sangria, Sunkissed, Agave Glow, and plain old black for a more neutral hue. The Sweet Sangria is this gorgeous plum/dark pink shade that reminds me of Maybelline’s Superstay 24 Liquid Lipstick in 24/7 Fuschia. The Sunkissed option is a soft yellow that’s perfect for fun in the summer sun and is reminiscent of chrysanthemum in a spring field. The Agave Glow does justice to the Mexican Agave species and closely mirrors its naturally minimalist green tones.

Temperature

Temperature

While sometimes it’s a warmer shoe you’re looking for, sandals generally aren’t designed to make you feel warm. That’s because you typically wear them in the summer when you’re in search of something that will help you beat the summer heat. Unfortunately, the Fluffies' fluff is anything but cooling. This is one design flaw with these flip-flops because despite being ultra-comfy they’re also going to make you sweat if it’s too hot outside. Wearing them in the fall or spring is a great idea because it’s still not too warm outside and you won’t be as likely to get hot and sweaty while you’re wearing them.
Durability

Durability

As with any flip-flop, really, this pair wasn’t built to last for more than a summer or two. One of the first parts to lose its luster is the fluff itself. Whether it’s the repeated exposure to moisture or the sticky humid weather, the sheepskin just doesn’t hold up too well and will start to look pretty beat-up after a whole summer of wear and tear. The straps, on the other hand, do last quite a long time thanks to their tough TPU material. Basically, if you want to keep on wearing worn out looking and slightly soggy feeling sheepskin for a second season then the Fluffie will easily make it to next year, but personally I prefer to look a little less of a mess.
Odors

Odors

Okay, we all know that ‘wet dog’ smell that creeps into our fur-trim winter jackets, am I right?! This material just isn’t geared up to be continuously exposed to moisture, whether its from wet feet that are fresh out of the pool or hot and sweaty ones from walking around in the heat all day long. Basically, these sandals are very prone to being smelly because that supple sheepskin-lined footbed is going to get soggy and start to smell pretty quickly.
Bottom Line

Bottom Line

Overall the Fluffie li Is a fun concept that puts a totally different spin on the traditional flip-flop. It's a cute and casual option that’s great for fun in the summer sun thanks to its laid-back design and barely-there straps. The Fluffie has sheepskin lining that is ultra-plush and comfy to wear but it can quickly start to be a nightmare because fur really wasn't meant to be worn under someone's hot and sweaty feet. This lining material is a great option for chilly days when you're making a dash from the hot tub to the cabin but isn't so great for warm summer days spent by the pool. The fur can make you even hotter and cause excessive sweating which only worsens the problem. Despite this issue, if you plan on wearing the Fluffie when the weather isn't quite so scorching and are extra careful to dry your feet thoroughly before slipping them back on, this can be a super cute pair. It comes in an assortment of girly colors which include Sweet Sangria, Sunkissed, Agave Glow, and Black, making this an easy pair of sandals to match with all your favorite outfits.
