Combat Flip Flops Suffers Setback

Combat Flip Flops has run into a setback in the production of their line of footwear.

Dear Combat Flip Flops Fans,

It is with disappointment that we deliver news about another Combat Flip Flops setback. The Combat Flip Flops team traveled to Kabul last week to take delivery of the initial run of AK-47’s, Tuck-Tucks, and Poseidons. Upon initial inspection, we found 100% of the footwear failed due to material issues. Post assembly, it was extremely clear that the footwear cannot be delivered to our customers.

This is not an Afghan issue. The responsibility is on our shoulders.

On an good note, we sourced two new factories and produced samples that exceed CFF standards for quality and production capacity.

The CFF team is executing a contingency plan that has the initial run footwear delivered to worldwide dealers and customers by Christmas with a much larger volume of Men’s and Women’s footwear for delivery in Spring 2013. If you have any questions or would like a refund for your previously purchased footwear, please email us at info@combatflipflops.com. We truly appreciate the support and patience of this community. Thank you.

It is unfortunate that CFF has run into this setback. I’ve spoken at length with the folks who have worked to bring this vision to reality and I know how difficult it has been to engage with Allies at the economic level, especially in a combat zone. They have been up front about these struggles and will work through this latest challenge. Thanks guys for helping to drain the swamp. It’s impossible to win when you’re up to your ass in alligators.

    Its always a hard thing to let your customers down, but it takes great integrity for a company to admit it, and fix it as quick as possible. CFF is a great company, with great people behind it. Keep up the hard guys!
