1. Risk of bacteria and fungi

Flip-Flops

They expose your feet to harmful bacteria like staphylococcus, risking severe infections and even amputation. Additionally, contagious fungal infections like warts and athlete’s foot are common. Stay cautious!

2. Slow pace

Auburn University study compares flip-flops and sneakers on human gait: findings reveal shorter steps and support time with flip-flops.

3. Increased risk of falls

Flip-Flops

Wearing flip-flops requires constant ground contact and foot grip, affecting walking stability and raising the risk of tripping.

4. Heel damage

Wearing flip-flops for extended periods can lead to severe heel pain due to the repeated impact and thin sole.

5. Blistering

Flip-Flops

Flip-flops’ sole attachment point is the side straps, which constantly rub against the skin, causing painful blisters that can become open wounds and lead to bacterial infections.

6. Permanent damage to the toes

Wearing them forces the foot into an unnatural “pincer” position, leading to toe deformities like hammer toe over time.

7. Aggravation of calluses

calluses due to the toe grip required to keep them on, particularly between the big toe and second toe where the thong strap rests.

8. Impaired posture
