The bizarre footwear, made by KUSA, features fake turf stitched into the soles so owners get the same sensation as strolling barefoot on a freshly mowed lawn. The company’s website shows sun seekers walking along the beach in the grass slippers which occasionally need to be fluffed for added comfort. The KUSA website explains: “Love the feeling of bare feet on freshly mowed grass?” Why not have that feeling anywhere, anytime. KUSA flip flops give you the opportunity to do just that. Where would you rather be? What would you rather be doing? Close your eyes and you are there! The bizarre footwear seems to have been a hit with customers across the globe, appearing on various trendsetting and fashion websites. Customers have been advised not to mow the grass to avoid damaging the product. In 2008, doughnut company Krispy Kreme released a press release promoting their own version of the al fresco flip-flop which they claim needed regular watering. The KUSA flip-flops are currently available online from around £20.
