Tapered Flip Flop Sand
Tapered is Sleepers' signature design flip flop with a distinctive square shape. It has a lightly constructed sole in premium grade natural rubber that follows the foot's natural curve and adapts to your foot's unique shape.
The shoe has a thin minimalist strap in premium grade natural rubber.
Inspired by nature, this flip flop comes in the perfect shade of sand; classic and seasonless.
The compound that Sleepers is made of also contains 10-15 % synthetic rubber. This is, to this date, the minimum requirement synthetic rubber needed in order for the flip flops to have the correct consistency and quality. This way, the flip flips do not break down too fast. We are always on the search for the most optimal solutions.

Flip flops made of plants.
Sleepers are eco friendly, fairly traded, premium grade natural rubber flip flops. The company was founded by surf buddies who came across natural rubber flip flops in Sri Lanka in 2001.
Flip flops are usually made of synthetic rubber, but Sleepers flip flops are made of natural rubber tapped in Sri Lanka. The natural latex is produced under Fairtrade conditions by Fair Rubber, ensuring the natural life cycle of the trees. Each flip flop is marked with the name of the plantation the rubber comes from.
Natural rubber breathes, is easy to clean and incredibly comfy.
At the moment Sleepers flip flops still contain 10-15% synthetic rubber, which is the minimum needed to prevent them breaking down too fast, but they are working on a better solution.
Sleepers use recycled FSC paper from the tea industry for their cool packaging.
