Our story starts with two backpackers on a surfing trip off the coast of the Indian Ocean. When they weren’t surfing they were strolling along the streets of the village they were staying in and saw all the locals wearing the same flip-flops. They felt compelled to try them and each bought themselves a pair of their own. The flip-flops they purchased were much more comfortable than any other shoe they had ever worn! They couldn’t bring themselves to wear any other shoe, so they wanted to take these great flip-flops and share them with people all around the world. That’s how the company was born. In the last few years, more than 150,000 pairs of our Bumpers have been sold all over the world.
Bumpers unique bumps structure, the flip-flops adapt your footprint as you walk, while the bumps massage your foot pressure points which increase blood flow to your feet in every step.
The flip-flops bumps work on both deeper and superficial parts of the foot, creating a natural “cleaning” effect of inflammatory factors and other ailments by increased blood flow.
In addition, like in reflexology and massage, an ongoing bumps contact on specific points (trigger points) of your feet, has the effect of a muscle and other soft tissues relaxation in the foot, ankle and calf muscle.
These effects will particularly help ease chronic pain such as: Plantar Fasciitis, Metatarsalgia, tendon inflammation (tendinitis) and muscle inflammation of the foot and ankle.
BUMPERS ARE NOT ONLY GOOD FOR YOU, THEY ARE GOOD TO THE ENVIRONMENT TOO
