They are just flat soles with an adhesive spread on the top. You step on and walk away. There are no straps to make sun marks or rub. A brilliant idea, and they are eye-catching. You can feel that you are glued down, the feet cannot slide about and the toe and heel contact points are at a fixed separation, but over short distances this is not unpleasant.
The biggest problem I've seen is the sticky surface picking up dirt. For example, walking over a recently-cut lawn, cut blades of grass stick to the exposed parts and are a bugger to get off. The flip-flops can be cleaned and rendered sticky again by washing in soap and water, but I think after a few wearings mine are starting to get a bit less secure.
They are quite expensive. Mine came from http://www.stickonflipflops.co.uk and were 14.50GBP including postage; they're not something you'd want to keep replacing.
A cute idea, buy a pair and wear them once or twice for the amusement of others.
And do you walk in them or on them?
Drop the flip-flops onto the floor
Aim one foot
Aim the other foot
Just to prove they really are stuck
But they're not stuck very hard, you can twist your foot off
And the other one
And back to where we started
