As comfortable as they are, flip-flops can be harmful to your feet. "Flip flops and sandals, to a degree, don't provide the same level of protection that a more robust shoe would,” Greenville Health System podiatric surgeon Dr. Ryan Fitzgeraldsaid. Fitzgerald said flip-flops can lead to foot injuries and even skin cancer. "People have a tendency to disregard their feet generally speaking, but particularly in the summer time when it pertains to shoes and sunscreen,” Fitzgerald said. "But skin cancer in the foot is not an uncommon thing."

"Certain materials are more porous than others and have the capacity to maintain moisture. Certain environments can lead to fungal infection and ultimately bacterial infections," Fitzgerald said. Depending on the material, Fitzgerald recommends getting a new pair of flip flops every season.
