Flip-flops don’t offer much support for the feet and can actually increase one’s risk of injury. “We’ve made flip-flops into a new fashion statement,” said podiatrist Dr. Edward McLaughlin of McLaughlin & McLaughlin in Riverhead. But “when it comes down to flip-flops,” he added, “they are essentially a shower shoe.”

Because the heel of the shoe is meant to flop around, it offers no arch or heel support, Dr. McLaughlin said, explaining that sandals with some type of heel strap are the more sensible way to go. “When you’re tied into a shoe with a back to it, you can’t bend your foot up as much,” he said.
