28 years ago, the first summer we were here, we bought a huge number of flipflops from the local "crap that didn't sell" resale shop (Building 19, now defunct). We think the reason they didn't sell is that they were all labelled with football teams. Um, who cares about football at the beach? Anyway, they are a pretty good style, comfortable, and they were $2/pair.
Since then, we've lent them, broken them, lost them, trashed them, etc. Rarely were they worn in matched pairs. I was cleaning out the area that we store them in, and sorting out various broken things and garbage, and I sorted the remaining flipflops into lefts and rights.
Apparently our flipflops are politically aligned. We have are 4 blueish left shoes and 5 reddish right shoes!
