MINI MILLIONAIRE

Girl Creates Flip-Flops, Makes $1.2 Million

‘Fish Flops’ for kids bring fun, beachy designs.

A Galveston Island, Texas native, Madison Robinson, was 8 years old when she came up with her idea for “Fish Flops.” The shoes have bright colors, beach designs, and LED lights in the soles. Now, the young entrepreneur has sold more than 60,000 pairs of the shoes and has made $1.2 million. Robinson is 15 years old now and has sold her flip-flops to Nordstrom and Macy’s. She plans on attending business school later in life and said, “Eventually, I want to do something by myself.” There may be a million fish in the sea, but there's few like Madison Robinson.
