Let's see, I'm going to strap ten cents worth of foam to my foot and call it a shoe. Then I'm going to complain when my arches show up in China.

Flip-flops are NOT full-time footwear.

There are flip flops and there are good flip flops.

I have a great pair of Merrells that I can truly walk miles in...and I have problems with plantars fascitis (sp?). They cost more, but are worth every penny.

Teva, Born, Earth, Mephisto, OluKai, Keen and others make quality products with built in arch support and gel cushions built into the soles.

Whether it's flip flops, wedges or stillettos you fancy, it is well worth investing in quality shoes made for both comfort and fashion. I used to buy cheap quality shoes and got foot problems as a result. You won't regret the expense once you try them and experience the difference.

Are those flip-flops or sandals? There's a big difference.

""Flip-flops were never meant to be everyday shoes," says Crane, a spokeswoman for the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons ( www.FootPhysicians.com ). "They were meant to wear from the locker room to the pool and back."

You should go to Hawai'i - The "Rubba Slippa" AKA flip flops are everyday wear there! I grew up in them!

Flip flops are a good tool to use on your woman when she gets out of line.

I played soccer for years when I was younger. I remember going to a sports podiatrist once because my feet were really hurting. I did my best to wear good footwear from then on. My mom even bought me some shoe inserts to make my shoes as supportive as possible.
