We strongly suggest seeking healthcare professionals’ guidance. 1. Risk of bacteria and fungi – They expose your feet to harmful bacteria like staphylococcus, risking severe infections and even amputation. Additionally, contagious fungal infections like warts and athlete’s foot are common. Stay cautious!2. Slow pace – Auburn University study compares flip-flops and sneakers on human gait: findings reveal shorter steps and support time with flip-flops. 3. Increased risk of falls-Wearing flip-flops requires constant ground contact and foot grip, affecting walking stability and raising the risk of tripping.4. Heel damage-Wearing flip-flops for extended periods can lead to severe heel pain due to the repeated impact and thin sole.5. Blistering-Flip-flops’ sole attachment point is the side straps, which constantly rub against the skin, causing painful blisters that can become open wounds and lead to bacterial infections.6. Permanent damage to the toes- Wearing them forces the foot into an unnatural “pincer” position, leading to toe deformities like hammer toe over time.7. Aggravation of calluses-Wearing flip-flops can lead to painful calluses due to the toe grip required to keep them on, particularly between the big toe and second toe where the thong strap rests.8. Impaired posture-Flat shoes lack proper heel support, disrupting weight distribution, blood circulation, and posture, especially with prolonged wear.9. Danger of tendonitis and bunions-Wearing them alters posture, putting more strain on leg joints. That can lead to foot problems like pain, tendonitis, and bunions.10. Toxic materials-Choose fabric or leather flip-flops over latex ones to avoid allergies and potential exposure to BPA, a cancer-causing compound.
