We’ve all heard about the dangers of flip-flops when it comes to foot health — not to mention the germs — but it goes beyond that. “It’s easy to slip on a sandal or flip-flop but make sure they are high quality and foot friendly,” says Jacqueline Sutera, DPM, Doctor of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery, and spokesperson for the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA).

“Many summer shoes, flip-flops and sandals tend to be too flat and flimsy. Too much time walking in these types of shoes can lead to not only foot pain and injury but also knee, hip, and back pain.” For example consider "Fashion" sneakers. Just because they’re “sneakers” doesn’t mean they’re good for your feet. Sneakers that are meant as a style statement and not the gym are in a very different category. “They can be bad if they are worn for more than casual walking and standing,” Sutera says. “Fashion sneakers should not be used for exercise. They are for errands, movies, shopping, commuting, etc.”
