    My favorite flip-flops have bitten the dust - worn out and eaten by the puppy. I would love to find the same pair again. Unfortunately I have no idea what brand they are -- any idea from the logo?

    They were bought at the Sports Basement in San Francisco. Pretty sure the brand is NOT O'Neill or Reef.

    Wanted to help you out, Ted.

    But I've never worn a flip-flop in my life. I asked my wife...who guessed Roxy. Their logo was actually kind of similar, but not a match.

    Did you step on a pop top?

    No, wasn't Roxy, would have remembered…

    Keep the guesses coming -- if only by process of elimination we may get somewhere. :)

    It's funny. I have done a bunch of Google searches but haven't come up with any matches yet.

    I'm not sure why this intrigues me as it does! :laugh:

    FWIW - if you are looking for a brilliant flip-flop, check out Olukai. They last for years and are incredibly comfortable. I swear by them and I wear mine daily. A single pair lasts about 3 years.

    I tried the same thing, but to no avail. I have a pair of Clarks that are uber-comfortable...
