FLIP-FLOPS -- THE FLAT-SOLED SHOES COMMONLY MADE OF PLASTIC OR RUBBER -- HAVE MANY ENDEARING QUALITIES.  THEY ARE EASY TO SLIDE ON AND KICK OFF.  THEY ARE EASY TO CLEAN, ESPECIALLY RINSING THE SAND OFF AND THEY ARE EASY ON THE POCKETBOOK.  UNFORTUNATELY, FLIP-FLOPS ARE NOT EASY ON THE FEET AND THEY ARE CAUSING PROBLEMS FOR THOSE WHO CALL THEM FASHIONABLE FOOTWEAR.  SOME PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY FEMALES AND MORE SO IN WARM CLIMATES ARE WEARING THEM 365 DAYS A YEAR.  

THIS IS LEADING TO INCREASED HEEL AND CORD PAIN AS A RESULT OF WEARING FOOTWEAR WITH LITTLE OR NO ARCH SUPPORT.  OVERPRONATION, A CONDITION WHERE THE FOOT FLATTENS AND ROLLS INWARD WHEN WALKING OR RUNNING, IS COMMON AMONG REGULAR WEARERS OF FLIP-FLOPS AND IN THE LONG RUN CAN ALSO RESULT IN PAIN IN THE ANKLE, KNEE AND SPINE.

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, CHIROPODISTS, CHIROPRACTORS AND PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT CHOOSING THE PROPER FOOTWEAR IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ONES HEALTH.
