Surfing Thongs

Growing up on the Gulf Coast of Florida there wasn’t whole lot of surfing going on. We still had a surf shop though and lived by the beach, so spent most of our time in flip flops or zoris, which is what my dad called them. I remember when Surfing Thongs became popular. There wasn’t  anything that had that cushiony feel when you walked. They were light, but thick. I loved them. Now that summer’s here and we’re getting ready to make our annual exodus from the city to visit Grandma in Florida I find myself reminiscing about the first time I tried a pair on. How unusual they seemed from the regular flip flops we would buy at the five & dime store near the beach. No wonder now my favorite summer shoe is Ginger by Reef.

I found this brochure from 1991 in one of my dad’s old cases.  Perfect for Spring.

Does anyone remember when 8th Street was the place to buy shoes?  IMG_8026

Still a few holdouts.

Growing up my dad called women that wore shoes like these, sidewalk stewardesses. As a child I wasn’t very savvy, so when he’d spot one I would always look for a stewardess in uniform.

Pearl River Mart is one of my favorite stores in Manhattan.  It’s located on Broadway between Grand Street and Spring Street and you can find just about anything there from a violin to a bar of soap.
