Summer is a great time to sport some flip flops. I wear flip flops almost everywhere during the warmer months, so a lot of my shoe collection comprises of cheap $2 or $3 dollar flip flops that I’ll wear to the beach or a pool. The trouble is that these flip flops don’t tend to have a very long lifespan. That piece right in between your toes tends to break if the shoe is made cheaply.

Instuctables.com has a quick, DIY solution for this particular problem. Using their instructions, you should be able to fix those flip flops, keep them functional, and eliminate the need for new ones this summer. All you’ll need is a short piece of wire, a drill and some pliers.
