Rangers vs. Sharks: Combat Flip Flops Heads into the Shark Tank Friday, February 5th


Issaquah, WA - After nearly four years of crushing the multiple roadblocks to manufacturing peace through trade while simultaneously creating economic solutions for those affected by conflict, Combat Flip Flops is ready for its next mission—swimming with the sharks on ABC’s Shark Tank


Get ready for a wild ride when Griff & Lee, two of Combat Flip Flops’ owners and former Army Rangers, enter the tank. Think you’ve seen drama in the tank before? Think you know how it’s going to end? Watch Friday, February 5th at 9 PM EST on ABC as Griff & Lee show the Sharks that manufacturing in war zones can do good and be profitable. 

“We’re stoked to bring the Combat Flip Flops mission to the tank,” said Matthew ‘Griff’ Griffin, Combat Flip Flops’ CEO & co-founder. Every Shark has the ability to expand the mission, inspire new recruits to join the Unarmed Forces, and manufacture peace through trade. Over the past few years, we’ve survived deadly encounters to create an opportunity like this. Attack Dogs. Raging Bulls. If we need to jump in the water with Sharks, then it’s time to grab the mask and fins.” 

“We’ve all seen and heard Shark Tank success stories,” said Donald Lee, Combat Flip Flops’ CMO & co-founder. “We set our minds to getting on the show and in true Ranger fashion, we accomplished the objective. We hope this is the catalyst our company needs to provide large scale, peaceful, sustainable change in areas of conflict.”

In 2015, Combat Flip Flops’ sales increased 150% over 2014 while the company donated over 60 years of school to Afghan girls and cleared 1533 square meters of land mines in Laos, keeping kids and all villagers safer. Through its Unarmed Forces, the brand has spread stoke and empowered mindful consumers to make a difference.
