Will my product idea be a success if i patented it?

Posted by: yomama12

Here's my idea: flip flops, but not with the regular rubber stuffed in it. Maybe, a stress ball like object, so the flip flops are actually confortable to wear. And the little thing that holds the flip flops on would be made out of foe fur, with no rubber, so it would feel VERY confortable on the stroll around the block. It would also come in high heels. Do you think it would be a good product? Or shouls I give up on the idea?

There's already an extensive market of "comfortable" flip flops that are highly fashionable & comfortable. They are $$$$, but that's another topic. As for the patent ... NO guarantee you will sell your idea. You WILL spend money to properly create a patent, copyright, etc. If you decide to go through with it, a bit of advice: Check your spelling on the paperwork & before you actually present your idea. In a quick glance, your remarks above have 3 or more misspelled words. When companies are looking at a product to "invest in", they want to know that it has brains behind it!

Have you ever seen comfortable flip flops in my style? That have stress balls in them to release the comfort?

No offense, but ... The comfy flip-flops on the market today are pretty and (more importantly) made by well-known companies who design comfortable footwear. Your design, if you can patent it, is virtually unknown. The stress balls that you think are a great idea may actually be an orthotic nightmare. That's a liability issue. There's a huge difference between squeezing a stress-ball in your hand & walking on them.
