The human foot consists of 26 bones, 56 ligaments, and 38 muscles, but with flip-flops, many of those moving parts are making moves they weren’t designed for, explained Dr. Patricia Nicholas of Lite Step Podiatry Wellness in Wading River. People tend to drag their feet or grip with toes to keep their flip-flops on, she said, causing “imbalance and greater risk of injuries.”

Wearing flip-flops continuously can contribute to a number of foot-related problems, including heel pain, cuts, scrapes, and abrasions. They can also contribute to more severe conditions such as hammertoes, bunions, back and leg pain, and tendonitis, she said.
