About Us

Combat Flip Flops was formed by two Army Rangers to grow sustainable, profitable economy in Afghanistan that is not related to war, drugs, or government contracting.   Both Lee and Griff served several tours in Afghanistan and Iraq with the 75th Ranger Regiment between 2002 and 2005. During the deployments, they saw slow improvement in the local economy or security as a result of coalition efforts.

In 2009, Griff began traveling back to Afghanistan with Remote Medical International in order to help the Afghan military with medical supplies and training for the growing Afghan National Army. During the visit, it was apparent that business, not bullets make the difference. Within Kabul, there were a staggering amount of small businesses thriving, construction of multiple story office buildings, and enough construction equipment working to make any American contractor envious. The money pumped into the economy got Afghanis to put down their guns, learn a trade, and work to improve their local environment. Business, not bullets.

Combat Flip Flops are built in the same factory that makes boots to withstand the rigors of Afghanistan. We’re confident these flip flops will withstand the rigors your daily life.  Combat Flip Flops makes high quality products that puts as many Afghans to work as possible.

We hope you like our flip flops, style, and approach to making a positive difference.
