The $1 Old Navy Sandal Sale is back! On Saturday, June 28, head on over to your local shop (there are 10 in Dade County) and snag them in the dozens. Or don't, because that would be selfish. According to Forbes, the sale started back in 2005 and is the brand's largest sale of the year, right after Black Friday. In fact, the global chief marketing officer for the brand admitted that "if you were to line up all the flip-flops we sold last year, they would cover 770 miles, approximately the length of California." That's a lot of flip-flops, folks. A lot. [Forbes]
