Phooey on Flip-Flops

Heels, flats, flip-flops: some of the trendiest shoes can be the riskiest. The worst offender are flip-flops. They’re meant for the beach and the pool, not for everyday walking.

People tend to drag their feet or grip with their toes in order to keep the flip-flops on their feet causing an imbalance and greater risk of injuries.

Flip-flops can contribute to a number of foot-related problems, including heel pain, cuts, scrapes, and abrasions. They can also lead to more severe conditions such as bunions, hammertoes back and leg pain, tendonitis and cracked, fissured heels.
