Please, let's be sure to take this all extremely seriously. It wouldn't be CD if people were to lighten up a little.

This was meant to be a conversation, not a political debate. If you hate flip flops that doesn't mean you have to get all angry about it. Most commenters have been polite and had something interesting to say. It is kind of important what you wear on your feet, so it's nice to hear lots of opinions.

But there is just no need to get hot and bothered about it!! (You know who you are, I hope).

Please update the thread after you've had an "incident" that awakens you.

I have to think that was the OP's attempt at humor. It WAS pretty funny, IMO.

I'd suggest totally nude with no shoes on....

Be good for a laugh, if nothing else.

Really? Ya mean G-d buys cheap flip-flops?

Well, now that I think about it, from all the "Jesus of Nazareth " movies I ever saw, that's possible, I suppose. Maybe they were hand-me-downs....

Flip flops with socks are not seen much, if ever. I think it's because people don't realize it's possible. I only found that out recently. I used to only wear the kind of sandals in winter that don't go between your toes.

And it is not as easy to get frostbite as you think. Thermal socks should prevent it unless you live where it gets extremely cold.
Are you aware there are various models of TOE SOCKS?

Wool, cotton, silk, bamboo, acrylic, five toes, exposed toes, three open toes, high socks, low socks, colorful socks, neutral socks, exciting socks, boring socks, argyle socks, holiday socks, thermal socks, electric socks, waterproof socks, toe-spreading socks, no skid socks, half foot socks, protective stickers for just the sole of your feet cutting out the need for flip flops altogether!

Is this a great country or what.

I have never felt unstable in flip flops. I have never slid off my flip flop. I do not feel I have to grip with my toes. In my Fit Flops I can walk for miles. Socks and flip flops are another category though. Besides being a major fashion faux pas it seems it would be majorly uncomfortable even with toe socks.

I've probably worn flip flops more than any other type of footwear, even working much of the time in them -no problems to report yet.

Some people just seem to have more problems with their feet.
