The benefits and freedom of wearing flip flops or going bare foot in keeping your feet cool and avoiding ‘tan lines’ are outweighed the potential harm to your feet, ankles, knees and hips. Dr Kristine Hagen explains; ‘Although it takes time for your gait to change, continued wear of non-supportive shoes can ultimately lead to serious complications, especially in your ankles, heels, and the soles of your feet.’
Constantly moving without good footwear increases your risk for painful conditions like:
As a result of dysfunction in your ankles and feet, you may also develop pain that radiates up into your legs and back.
Inadequate footwear, especially flip flops, forces the ankles to turn inward, changing how you walk and the length of your strides. Your constant, but subconscious, efforts to keep your flip flops in place can lead to aching muscles and persistently tired feet.
