Feelgoodz Launches Exclusive “Jack Johnson by Feelgoodz” Flip-Flop Collection

Footwear Brand Partners with Renowned Musician to Debut Collection
with All Proceeds Benefiting Environmental Education
Feelgoodz is pleased to announce the launch of “Jack Johnson by Feelgoodz”, an exclusive flip flop collection designed in collaboration with renowned musician Jack Johnson with all proceeds benefiting the Kokua Hawaii Foundation.

The collection will consist of one men’s style and one women’s, which were selected by Jack Johnson and his wife, Kim, because they are their favorite styles, with colors and designs complementing Jack Johnson’s latest album, From Here to Now to You. This partnership is a natural fit for Johnson, who wears Feelgoodz regularly and loves the brand’s dedication to using natural materials.
All of the proceeds from the “Jack Johnson by Feelgoodz” collection will benefit the Kokua Hawaii Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Jack and Kim Johnson which supports environmental education in the schools and communities of Hawaii, Johnson’s home state.
“A big mahalo to Feelgoodz for making my favorite pair of slippers and helping us support environmental education,” notes singer/songwriter Jack Johnson.
“We couldn't be more excited about our new partnership with Jack and his team,” says Feelgoodz Founder Kyle Berner, “Our collaboration happened organically and authentically and it embodies the perfect balance of both of our cultures, values, and philanthropies, and we're doing it all through an amazingly comfortable flip-flop collection.”
Jack Johnson by Feelgoodz Collection:
Kinderz: This flip-flop, or “slipper” as they call them in Hawaii, is Jack Johnson's favorite style and the ones he personally wears. Made of  natural products including a veggie-tanned leather upper with natural Vietnamese rubber midsole and outsole. The colors selected are a throwback to the original release of this style; it is comfortable, soft, has arch support and the footbed is molded to a podiatrist's specifications. Available for Men in Sizes: 9-10, 10-11.5, 11.5-13. (MSRP: $49.99)      
Slimz:  Kim Johnson, Jack's wife, wears this style and worked with Jack’s From Here to Now to You album artist to provide Feelgoodz with the artwork to screenprint on the footbed. This all-natural flip-flop is made of 5L, the highest quality, Thai rubber and natural dyes. It’s designed to mold to the foot, providing custom arch and heel support. Available for women in sizes: 5-7, 7-9, 9-10, 10-11. (MSRP: $24.99)
The Jack Johnson by Feelgoodz Collection is available in late spring for purchase on the Feelgoodz website, Jack Johnson’s website, as well as on Jack Johnson’s North American tour.
About Feelgoodz:
Feelgoodz was founded by Kyle Berner while backpacking through Thailand. After the flip-flops he was wearing one night broke, he began his search for a new pair. He came across a pair hanging from an interesting display and found them to be the most comfortable pair of shoes he had ever worn. Made from natural rubber, the flip-flops proved to be both comfortable and sustainable. The idea of producing these particular shoes drove him to create Feelgoodz in New Orleans in 2008. In 2012, the company relocated to Raleigh, NC where Feelgoodz continues to support farmers and artisan cooperatives around the world. Please visit www.feelgoodz.com for more information.
About Jack Johnson:
Jack Johnson grew up surfing and playing guitar on the North Shore of Oahu.  He released his first album Brushfire Fairytales in 2001 and since has released 6 studio albums and 2 live albums that have sold over 20 million copies worldwide.  With his success, Johnson has always tried to take the spotlight and shine it on issues important to him.  In 2003, Jack Johnson released On and On and, with his wife Kim, founded the Kokua Hawaii Foundation and Kokua Festival to support environmental education in Hawaii's schools and communities. Johnson, his Brushfire Records label, and his touring crew have been leaders in the greening of the music industry in all areas of tour production and album packaging.  In 2004, Johnson became the 50th member of 1% For The Planet and Johnson's 2005 release of In Between Dreams became the first album to carry the 1% label. In 2008, Johnson released Sleep Through the Static, recorded in his solar-powered studio, and donated 100% of his tour profits to establish the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, an endowment founded by Jack and Kim Johnson to support environmental, art and music education worldwide. In 2010 Johnson released To The Sea, and travelled the world donating 100% of his tour profits to charity once again. In September 2013 Johnson released his 6th studio album, From Here To Now To You, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Charts, and embarked on an international tour of Europe and North America whose profits will support plastic free initiatives and sustainable local food through Johnson’s All At Once network.  The total of these album and tour profit donations, along with Johnson’s personal charitable activities, have resulted in over $25 million donated to charity since 2001.

Review: SHOLDIT Clutch Wrap Purse

SHOLDIT products give you the freedom to enjoy a hands free lifestyle so you can do more of the things you love. 

Growing up rural, she began with a one-room, eight-student school and a grandfather saying marry rich to be successful, Angela Lee took this foundation to fight for her dream in fashion. With a twenty dollar sewing machine and no industry connections, SHOLDIT, in one year, has been featured nationally including The TODAY Show, GMA, Forbes, and sold by top retailers. Now the mission is to inspire freedom beyond products: to encourage others to accomplish their own impossible dreams. 

In creating the idea for the SHOLDIT brand and its product line, many things came to heart. Being a fast paced woman, always on the go, I grew tired of carrying a traditional bag. I soon realized I wasn’t the only one. I kept hearing about the same frustrations from others of lugging a heavy purse, the strap cutting into the shoulder causing neck and back strain, having to dig around forever trying to find something, the constant worry of leaving it behind or fear of it hanging on a chair back for someone to swipe or dig in while not paying attention. Also, every woman will cringe at the thought of setting it on the floor only to get dirty, wet, or sticky and whatever else stuck to it. The idea for a new style of purse struck me after two particularly frustrating events: almost losing my passport in the airport and then actually losing my cell phone at a sporting event because I didn’t want to carry a bag all day. I thought, “There has got to be a better, more fashionable way!” Then I thought, “I love the look and feel of a scarf, the security of across the body bags, and the simplicity of a clutch. Why not incorporate everything to create an entirely new and different style of purse!” It may be worn in a variety of ways and has the added value of converting back into a clutch when desired. The SHOLDIT Clutch Wrap purse prevents so many problems and frustrations including: making one limited to carrying only the necessities, giving hands free movement with out the strain, keeping valuables secure, and it’s a fashion piece! So from the center of my heart, I wish for SHOLDIT accessories to bring true love and freedom to those it touches.  

Thank you to SHOLDIT for the information and Clutch Wrap purse free of charge.
