Flip-flops are named for the sound they make when you walk — flip, flop, flip, flop. This common, inexpensive warm weather footwear certainly comes with its drawbacks. If you wear them all the time, you are likely experiencing pain that isn’t very healthy for your feet.
Researchers at Auburn University found that wearing flip-flops alters the way you walk and changes your gait in subtle ways that can lead to serious sole, heel and ankle problems. These findings were presented at the annual meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine in Indianapolis.
Most researchers agree that casual flip-flop use is fine. The trend in recent years, that more is less when it comes to healthy footwear, has propelled the traditional flip-flop beyond the domain of beach bums and into the realm of sturdier sandals as proper summer fashion day and night.
Enter the toe loop sandal.
Toe Joez – http://www.toejoez.com – toe loop sandals for men, women and kids are referred to in a variety of terms including “toe loop flip flops”, “flip flop toe rings”, toe loop shoes and toe loop sandals. This patented new sandal design from a centuries old style is quickly replacing traditional flip flops because they are amazingly comfortable from the first time you put them on. They don’t slip around when you walk or pinch your toes, ankles or feet. They’re also super easy to clean, lightweight, affordable and kid friendly.
Toe Joez sandals are made from a super durable synthetic material and not from leather, so they don’t fade in the sun or get stiff after they get wet and dry out.
Have you ever been walking on the sand at the beach and had your flip flops throwing sand everywhere? You can barely take a step without feeling sand being thrown on the back of your ankles and lower leg. After just a few steps the hot sand they are supposed to be protecting your feet from is on top of the sandal and under your feet. And typical flip flops are notorious for inadequate foot support and slipping around while you walk. If all that wasn’t enough, many of the flip flop styles actually rub the skin between your big and second toe if you wear them long enough.
