Top 10 Flip-Flop-Lies Why You Should Never Ever underestimate your flip-flops
They are comfortable but don’t support your big shoe industry
Today I want to put a bit light on the real pros and cons of wearing flip-flops. I searched the internet and found 25 and 500 more posts about how bad flip-flops are for us. Strangely not one that says “do not wear high heels”.
The one, quite actual post, from the cosmoplitan.com, hit me so hard, I had to write this counter post. It is written by Elizabeth Narins in July this year,2017 and is titled, “10 reasons you should never ever wear flip-flops“. I will react to all 10 reasons an leave my opinion.
Already the second paragraph makes me think, what does she mean!!! I should reserve my flip-flops for the beach and so on and leave my feet out of them??? Ok, I buy some flip-flops and give them to the beach, lol, I hope he has fun with them.
Sorry but I have to make a bit fun of this article, it’s just too much
1. DANGER are illnesses you can catch walking with flip-flops
I don’t really know where she or her informant, who is a highly decorated podiatrist, walk around all day. Places, where human shit lays around or even walking through dog shit, is not what I normally do when I wear flip-flops. In public baths and showers, I usually have no shoes on at all and at the beach, I get in touch with sand with my hands, body, as well as bare feet.
The highly contagious Athletes foot infection, does, in fact, sound like it rather likes sports shoes and not an open always brushed feet in flip-flops. I have a wart, since last year and that one I got when I was in cold Switzerland wearing working boots.
2. DANGER of being too slow
I don’t know who is faster, a lady in high heels, a farmer in rubber boots or my eight-year-old daughter in her flip-flops. To say sneakers are a riskless footwear is not really realistic, what do you think.
3. DANGER of getting trampled down in a stampede
Obviously, stronger feet, shoes squeeze softer feet, shoes and win in a race of life and death. So we might all walk with military boots everywhere we go. Thank you for this objective information.
4. DANGER of destroying my heels
Maybe when you write posts like this you have to run around all day and try to make noise with your heels so some people listen to you. Flip-flops are shoes for people that enjoy their lives. We walk relaxed and with grace in very comfortable shoes with shock absorbing soles. For every purpose, there is a shoe and when you want to walk long distance you put on walking shoes. But for real, nowadays, who is walking long distances on a daily basis?
5. Danger of Blister (I think I like this one the most)
What can I say, with about every new shoe I get blisters but with flip-flops?
6. Danger of permanent damage to your toes
I don’t know about you, have you ever seen feet of people wearing high heels all day? This is what I call damaged feet and toes. I live in Thailand and everyone from young to old wears flip-flops. No one has hammer toes, except the poor girls and women that work in Bangkok and have to wear western style business clothing and shoes.
7. Danger of unhealthy posture
If you want to take care of your posture and think biomechanics is the issue, buy good flip-flops!
8. Danger of shooting pains
I think every child with flat feet knows of this problem. They are used to getting the right shoes for them selfs. Who would think wearing flip-flops would be an exception? Most flip-flop brands have several arch support sandals. To say this problem has anything to do with flip-flops is just another lie.
9. Danger of bump at the big toe joint
This phenomenon I truly know by my self. Sometimes when a strap or by bad luck all straps break, I have a really hard time keeping my flip-flops under my feet. But as the clever guy, as I am, I buy a new pair of nicely fitting flips and rub my toes a bit. Thanks for the warning.
10. Danger of getting poisoned
Now, this I find a bit of a defamatory statement. The shoe with the least possible contact with our body should be a great risk for skin poisoning. And how about other kinds of shoes, are they all made of natural components?
Really dear Miss or Mrs. Narins, such a bunch of crab I have not heard in a long time. If you don’t like flip-flops, for whatever reason, that is up to you. But for writing this, to an international audience, with for sure some more than just me, intelligent readers, you should get your ass kicked.
Here, now you see my friends, don’t let yourself get irritated. I do not really understand why this negative attitude against flip-flops exists but it actually does. Flip-flops can be a very good footwear for everyone. But buy a good pair or know what you can use them for. It is like with everything in life, use some common sense, as I already said on my introducing page.
See you all, have a great flip flop time, believe in your dreams.
