not sure where I saw these - but I thought I'd give them a go - cost me about 3 bucks to make (kids sizes) not sure if they'd sell though - now to do some research

found it - http://snapguide.com/guides/make-balloon-tie-flip-flops/
The instructions say 50 balloons per sandal - I used 80 and tied the balloons closer to the nozzle than the demo (you get a poofier sandal

those are very cool looking! I wonder though how comfortable they are to actually wear.....do you think the balloons tied around the strap would cause it to be a little uncomfortable on the top of your foot?

and yet another way to do it - add a puff of air (I have no idea how long the puff of air will last)
