These thongs are made for walking....

In Australia we call them thongs:) & this is the collection at our house. (For the challenge abstract flip flops )
They're not what we in the UK call 'Thongs' 😜

When I was a kid, we called them thongs. I am not sure if that was a regional thing, or if the US as a whole has changed to flipflops. Given the new thong designation, I think I will continue to call them flipflops! 😜

The "thongs" I think you are referring to I call "dental floss for derrière " @phil_sandford @evalieutionspics :)

What a great collection. I must admit they are my favourite footwear in the summer. When I lived in Africa they were called 'slops' (as in slip-slops). Great for the challenge. Fav!!

clever composition. I'm not a big thong wearer as they seem to hurt my toes

Great collection - and I like your comment about the other thongs - which is why I prefer to call these flip flops!

Nice collection :)

Love it and love your title, too.

Some cool ones there, they make a good abstract display too!

Great imagination. Fav.

good shot! I dare not take a picture of my thongs!..........it certainly wouldn't be a flip flop! Lol!

Fun photo! We call them flip-flops here. Thongs here are well.. the other thing you referred to.
August 31st, 2016

Great shot of those `` strand(beach) slippers``

Super capture, I wear them for around the wet area when I go swimming each day.

Thanks for all the comments and laughs! It really begs the question then where does the origin of words start. Same subject: different names: different connotations:) Yes @leggzy correct. @daisyditch @hermann @irene111 @cruiser not the best footwear. Podiatrists hate them. @farmreporter @merrelyn @mittens @jackie8 @thresheg @janemartin :) @beckyk365 :) @annika82 @pyrrhula @craftymeg
