  • When I grew up we called them sandals. Then later they were called flip flops or thongs. In the US it's somewhat regional in different areas.

    The word thongs from these is where the name for the underwear came from - referring to the thing between the toes. It was kind of a joke at first, but it caught on and stuck.

  • We call them flip flops, although some silly women call then "appropriate business attire" ... seriously they wear a buttoned shirt and shirt, then walk around the office with flip flops on.

  • 人字拖 in HongKongese or "Man flops"
    "人字" , the word man. Due to the shape of the plastic strap resembling that of the word "man" in Chinese.
    "拖" , drag , because of the god awful noise it makes whenever people walks around in them.

  • Flip flops here in the U. S.

    Speaking of Australia, I just found out recently that candies are called "lollies" over there.

    Is that true, @justbanannaz?
