Out here in Az, flip flops are the required footwear. From stomping thru snow in Flagstaff, to riding a goldwing to Nascar in Goodyear, even the formal look of rhinestones for clubbing in Scottsdale. Some have a beach look, some are in camo, some with what passes as golf spikes, some with a bottle opener, some for gardening,some for hiking, but they all fall short when it comes to snake proof.
So ingrained the use of thongs (word used before they became underwear), I think it was a women's team for volleyball that was advised that flaps weren't the "proper" footwear to meet the President.
So, if you come to visit Az. pack a selection of flaps, or help out the economy, and buy some souvenirs with little scorpions on them, , ,

"some with a bottle opener"

Self defense, no doubt, to avoid stepping on pop tops.

The Argue Thread

Flip flops are irritating. That 'post' at the connection point of the flip and flop just creates too much pressure between thumb toe and index toe.

I prefer these (and I don't care that they're made by Crocs...they're best beach sandals I've ever owned).

Never ever considered FFs. Have not given slides much consideration ..... except when I experienced PF and the Nike sport slides were suggested as a solution. Didn't go that way, but severe pain is a real motivator. FFs were not recommended. So, guess I can't argue with it either. Is it acceptable to agree in the argue thread? Pat

The Argue Thread

Sperry Topsiders with low cut socks.

Quit doing flip flops outdoors when I sunburned the top of my feet once walking home four miles from my disabled vehicle. Hurt worst than any other sunburn before or ever since...😭
