Are Flip-Flops Good or Bad?
Aug. 4, 2016

Just this last week, I had the honor I’ve giving my humble opinions about flip-flops…

Before I give you the link to the article, let me just say a few things…

Depending on how well you already know me, I’m kind of an earthy sort of fellow.

Currently, I’ve got a nice “man-bun” going, and I’m quite fond of going barefoot, especially when I’m working in the garden.

So when the reporter from the Spokesman called me and asked for my opinions of flip-flops, of course I had to give my 2 cents!

So here they are:

  • First of all, I love flip-flops!  Especially Sanuk’s, which are the softest ones I’ve found.  And the best part about them: I can kick them off and go barefoot in my grass and the dirt!
  • Can flip-flops be bad for foot pain? Sure, if you’re having foot and ankle issues, you might benefit from additonal support, especially arch support.  But I prefer the “don’t fix it if it isn’t broken” approach.  So please feel free to enjoy flip-flops otherwise.

There you go, those are my entire 2 cents.  Let’s not overthink wearing flip-flops.

If your feet are comfortable and you like wearing them, go for it!

And if your feet hurt and you need some help, then give us a call!
