Flip-Flops are fashionably hot, but these slip-on summer favorites can affect your Feet and could also cause leg and foot pain.
Walking long distances in them isn’t a good idea, advises the American Podiatric Medical Association)APMA). Even the best Flip-Flops offer little shock absorption or arch support.

DO: Look for flip-flops that have the APMA’s Seal of Acceptance. Certain brands of flip-flops have been awarded the APMA”s Approval for demonstrating proper foot support.
Do: toss flip=flops when there soles show signs of wear. Like running shoes, they wear out quickly.
