But check this out: In a 2008 study, researchers at Auburn University found that flip-flops actually change the way people walk - sometimes permanently. And those changes can wreak havoc on the rest of the body, with distinct and noticeable effects on everything from your posture to your gait.
So what’s the outcome? Did the people from the study tell us to never wear flip flops again?! Do we really need to ditch our fav summer shoes?
No! Just like so many other things in life, flip-flops are fine…as long as we aren’t wearing them ALL of the time.
Here are a few suggestions:
This week- your challenge is to treat your feet right! If you wear flip-flops all of the time, switch it up this week and show your feet a little love.
If you’ve got flimsy flip-flops, ditch them for a better, more supportive option OR skip them all together this week.
And maybe even get a pedicure J
