Choosing a Pair of Flip Flops Important to Your Foot Health

Your winter boots and furry slippers are at the back of the closet now, replaced by sandals and flip flops. They’re fun and easy, but flip flops can be hard on your feet if you don’t know what to look for. With so many styles to choose from, doctors say many of us are wearing the wrong type of flip flops. And that can lead to foot injury, such as tendonitis, blisters and rashes!

Exam your flip flops. Take a look at the classic flip flop, the flat rubber flip flop are the worst! Number one, they’re very flimsy, there’s no support whatsoever. Number two, they’re made out of rubber. So they’re very hot. There’s no breathing at all.
Consumers should be careful of the thong that goes between the toes. When the flip flop is flimsy and flat, your arches suffer. A rubber bottom is just fine. But a rubber insole is sure to make your foot sweaty.

And while plastic decorations are OK, plastic straps are sure to pinch. You’ll want to avoid them and look for straps made of leather or fabric. A good pair of flip flops can actually help correct foot problems, which makes them not only easy to wear but therapeutic.
