Are Flip Flops Bad For Your Feet?

| Filed under: HealthBody

Do flip flops wreck a person's feet?

According to experts, flip flops aren't a good idea for a number of activities including playing sports, taking hikes or long urban walks.

Alhough the footwear is convenient around the pool or the shower, it has zero arch support, heel cushioning, or shock absorption according to the American Podiatric Medical Association.

All of this factors can lead to injuries such as broken toes or sprained ankles!

It's also hazardous to wear flip flops while driving an automobile since they can lodge under one's brake or gas pedal.

Here's what an expert said:

"Whatever you wear on your feet, make sure it's not so loose that it pops off and interferes with the pedals."

Last but not least - if you choose to wear flip flops make sure you put massive amounts of sunscreen on your feet as it will prevent skin cancer!!!

Stay safe friends.
