Design Concept: The Thogger. Half thong (flip flop) Half Jogger (runner)

This concept was the outcome of an enlightening work conversation about combined clothing items given portmanteau names. The word portmanteauu comes from the French language and literally means a case with two parts that holds clothes.  Examples are Jeggings (Jean/Leggings), Skorts (Skirt/Shorts),

So what would happen if you merged a Thong (flip flop) with a Jogger (runner)?

You’d get a Thogger or for American readers a Flogger.

A comfortable piece of footwear that allows for breathability of the front part of the foot yet stability and ankle support at the other end.

A THONG (FLIP FLOP) + A JOGGER (RUNNER) =  A THOGGER (FLOGGER)

A 10 minute photoshop mashup of 2 images and you get…
