Stepping Into Flip-Flops Can Be Walking Into Trouble
As foot care professionals, we let people know when there’s trouble afoot; and if you wear flip-flops, you could be walking right into it! Indeed, as you’re a mere, uh, step away from being barefoot, you’re likely to sustain cuts, splinters, or puncture wounds on your feet. Moreover, since those virtually uncovered feet often pick up dirt that contains bacteria and/or fungus, you’re even more susceptible to skin irritations, infections, athlete’s foot, plantar warts, and much worse.
Of course, we know that all of the warnings in the world won’t keep flip-flop fans from their favorite footwear. So, if you routinely step into a pair each morning, at least try to watch what you step into for the rest of the day!
