I don’t know about you guys, but I was sick of almost falling down our docks gangway that was lined with non-skid, so I took matters into my own hands.

So instead of throwing away my otherwise perfectly good Reef flip flops, I decided to get a little crafty and fix the problem and to think, all I needed was a hot glue gun like this one: click here. It was so simple, and now I don’t end up sliding everywhere I go! Take a gander at my little fix-it project below, and be sure to follow us on Instagram!
