The Truth About Flip Flops
We all love being able to show off our pretty, manicured toes during this time of year, but our feet may not be so grateful when we slip them into a pair of flip flops. Doctors say the flat shoes are bad for the arches of your foot and give poor support, which can lead to ankle injuries. Since your feet are constantly sliding in them, they can also cause unsightly blisters and calluses. They are perfect for showering at the gym and protecting your feet from unwanted bacteria, but if you’re going out for a walk trade in your flip flops for a more appropriate type of shoe.
