9 Reasons to Hate Flip-Flops

flip flopsI feel a certain way about wearing flip-flops. How would I describe that feeling ... fear and loathing, maybe? Abhorrence? Don't me wrong -- I love my bronze Havaianas. I don't judge anyone else who wears them out in public (unless we're at a formal event). And I completely understand how convenient and comfortable they are for a lot of you. Sort of. But I can't bring myself to wear them any place other than the beach or pool or shower of indefinite cleanliness. Why, you ask? Well, I could point you to this article entitled "Your Flip-Flops Are Grossing Me Out." Or I could show you in pictures.

There is nothing wrong with flip flops.  I love them. 


This article has not merit other that somone complaining about something they don't like.  Why not talk about something you do like instead of being a complainer.

This article should be titled "I Am Way Too Serious & Fancy for Flip-Flops and Here are My Reasons Why".

"9 reasons I hate flip-flops" or "someone actually pays me to whine for a living". Seriously? Can we say elitist? 


For the record, I LOVE flip-flops.  I have had foot surgery and they are the only "sandal" that isn't incredilby uncomfortable.

I love flip-flops! And most of your flip-flop problems would be solved if you didn't wear flat ones. I know it sounds crazy but I used to have all of these (physical) problems until my sister, the Queen of Flip Flop Land, got me a pair of slightly high heeled ones. They have a little raised wedge in the back and it keeps them on my feet, they don't make that sound, and I walk quite gracefully. I adore them.

Flip flops have their place. However I don't live in NYC. If I did, I don't think I'd wear flip flops outside my house.
