How We're Wrecking Our Feet With Every Step We Take -- New York Magazine

There are people who run their whole life and could not even tell you if they are pronated or not, and not even know the meaning of such a term.

Like I stated, your argument is weak that flip flops are bad for your feet considered all of the office correct shoes that are even worse for your feet, like any heel for example.

I would like to know the statistics of people with bad feet, what would be considered bad feet, and if flip flops (or whatever) was the cause of such bad feet.
There are many shoe styles that do not afford the proper support, and although wearers don't experience negative impacts as yet; down the road they more than likely will.

You have the choice to wear whatever you want to wear. . .they're your feet.

I work on a college campus where the parking lot is on the other side of campus from my office. Most of my coworkers wear flip flops to and from the office. I keep all of my "office shoes" under my desk. If I'm just sitting at my desk, normally my shoes are off... I just slip on my heels before I have to go to a meeting or get up.

A lot of companies have dress codes that forbid open toed shoes or sandals for safety reasons.
That's an excuse. I frequently wear sandals, they're closed at the toe part though, making the generic forbidding sandals defeat the purpose on that grounds. I do gardening, exposing myself to all manner of bugs, dirt, or whatever. Never had problems. If that's the case, what's so "unsafe" about a typical office? The worst thing is maybe a thumbtack.

It is not a safety issue; if you want to lower the bar to that, we can go over numerous things that are more a safety/health issue in the office than flip flops.
