flip flops that don't flop!

Sandalfilter: Australian shoe, looks like a flip flop, but with strap farther back and a peg for between big toe and middle. Named something like yogi shoe. Any bells?

Are you thinking of Yoki fashion sandals?

Nope, they're sort of croc-like. Made out of plastic or rubber. unisex.

They call them thongs.

They call them thongs
Thongs= flip flops= OP already mentioned that they are similar but not thongs/flip flops.

Btw, mrstrotsky, I know what you're talking about, but I don't know what they're called either and now it's going to drive me crazy, haha.

Sorry to post again but, I think it would help to add this if this is also what you are thinking of:
They have a peg between the toes that is NOT part of a strap.


They're kind of like this, but not gold and they have a strap across the archish area, right?

These are called toe-knob sandals, or padukas.
