Jason Kelce talks his love for flip-flops

Wherever Jason Kelce goes, his flip-flops are with him every step of the way.

It’s not uncommon to see the Philadelphia Eagles player, 36, sporting his favorite brown sandals year-round, whether he’s heading to football practice, an event or a family hangout at Disney World — and he doesn't plan on ditching the shoes any time soon.

“It’s just become a thing now,” the dad of three told brother Travis Kelce, 34, on the latest episode of their New Heights podcast.

"You've had the same pair for, what, a decade now?" the Chiefs tight end asked. Jason confirmed that yes, he's worn the same style for many years, but only had to replace his favorite shoe once since buying them, a testament to their quality. "They had some miles on them," he said of his broken pair.

For all the fans out there wondering about Jason’s style staple, his footwear of choice is the leather OluKai Mea Ola sandals, available on the brands website as well as amazon.com for $130.

In a convincing review of the “quality” flip-flops, he mostly raved about the arch support and and look.

“I didn’t think you cared about looking nice, that's all,” Travis joked, to which Jason replied, “If it’s functional, high quality and it looks good, I’m all for it."

That same standards go for his clothing too. In a viral video that was later mocked by Jason’s teammate Lane Johnson, Jason wears skinny jeans, a green V-neck shirt and his thong sandals — and notes he's not looking for praise for his sartorial choices.

"What the f-ck do I care about a game-day 'fit," Jason says in the TikTok video of him arriving at a game in the aforementioned look.

His shenanigans definitely ramped up the energy among fans and Taylor Swift, who cheered on Travis from their shared suite. But, his wife, Kylie Kelce, whose placid expression went viral later, wasn’t as thrilled.

“I don't think she was happy about it, to be honest with you,” Jason said of Kylie on a previous podcast episode, noting that she wanted him to be on his "best behavior" in front of the Grammy winner.

But Jason can’t help but pull out his best tricks because, as he put it, “this is part of the Jason Kelce charm.”
