It's almost time for the annual flip flop sale season at Old Navy and in celebration of $1 sandals, the retailer will be launching 'Tweet for your Feet' shoe vending machines. These flip flop vending machines will be introduced to 36 spots throughout New York and Los Angeles, making it easier to grab a pair and go.
However, as the name of the machine suggests, people are able to get a pair of colorful flip flops in exchange for a tweet, rather than a dollar. The machines will be moving throughout the two American cities throughout June 24th - 26th, but you can keep up with where the vending machine will be by tracking #flipflophooray on Twitter. Considering that the summer Old Navy flip flop sale is its biggest event after Black Friday, these machines are sure to empty out fast.
