It’s an exciting time of year! The nice weather is finally here, the kids are almost done school and we are only weeks away from celebrating the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games!
Did you know that Friday, June 17th is National Flip-Flop Day? Get those toes prettied up and slip on a pair of Team Canada’s Para Flip-Flops to show your support and excitement for our Canadian athletes heading to Rio!
Inspired by our Canadian summers, and with the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, these unisex flip-flops will help Canadians celebrate summer in style. The all-over print showcases a stylized, athletic Canada, with a key focus on our glorious maple leaf. Polar bears wearing toques and sweatbands are united with images of Inukshuks, campfires, tents and tall pines and a patriotic rally foam finger to boot, along with HBC and Canadian Paralympic Committee logos.
These special flip-flops are available in Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada and thebay.com. At $15 a pair, 30% of each flip-flop purchase goes to support Paralympic athletes and programs for aspiring athletes.
In addition to the Para Flip-Flops, the Official Canadian Paralympic Team Collection includes a graphic t-shirt for men and women, a beach towel, a unisex ball cap and a tote bag. All five Paralympic items are designed with the stylized, repeat graphic shown on the Para Flip-Flops. The full collection is priced from $15 to $40 and is available at Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada and thebay.com. The Paralympic collection is available online at http://tinyurl.com/jm85f8g.
