If Fat Tire Sandals Weren’t Your Thing, Maybe Fat Tire Flip Flops Are

Hey, if you’ve got a setup that works, apply it to everything you can. A few weeks back Under Armour introduced sandals that used the Fat Tire tooling. Now, you can also pick up Fat Tire flip flops.

While not officially dubbed flip flops, the UA Fat Tire Sandal uses a HeatGear lined synthetic strap for a custom fit. The tech underfoot — Charged Cushioning, a soft high-rebound foam, and the Michelin Wild Gripper outsole rubber compound with aggressive traction lugs — should allow you to tackle environments most flip flops can’t. The footbed also features the herringbone-like Charged design.

Available in three colorways here (Midnight Navy, Black, Black/Camo) and priced at $65, it’s one of the most expensive pairs of flip flops I’ve seen, but it has great reviews — save for the fact that the black rubber makes the bottom of your feet equally black. The solution is socks, but you don’t want to be a shoebie, right?

Anything else Under Armour should apply this tooling to? Let us know.

  1. I’m not sure if UA has thrown the FatTire outsole on a workshoe or not yet, but it sounds like a great idea

  2. Is fat tire more comfortable than the alphabounce or the supercloud by Adidas on sandals?

    They seem more cheaper options compared to fat tire by UA,

    Just curious, just in case someone was able to compare, thanks.

    1. I haven’t tried the AB but I don’t really think the two are comparable because they are meant for different things; the AB is for running, and its pretty bouncy, while the Fat Tire system is designed for all environments but Charged is a bit much cushy (because there is so much of it).

  3. There are many flip flops that are in the price range, even hiking ones. I’d really like to see these with the speed tire tooling.
