LOL I don't know about that but I'll guess it is worth a try.

If your friends judge you by the fact you are wearing flip-flops or sandals, you need different friends.

I have a separate sandals collection now apart from my shoes collection.

I have never cared about fan reviews of what they think of my sandals LMAO.

I even wear them to the church once in a while. Here's the one I love the most, coz it feels like I'm St. Peter walking on water I see now that the price has been slashed to 80$ or so, it was almost 140 when I got this one last year

Like one poster said, the only taboo is wearing socks here

Man, fashion varies based on where you are.

I live about 100 feet away from the beach. Everybody here wears flip-flops. It looks totally normal to eat at a nice restaurant, in flipflops. Socks & sandals are a major faux pas, though.

Me, personally, I would go barefoot all the time if I could get away with it. Flip-flops are a compromise. Boots are for when it gets cold, and shoes are just the man's way of keepin' me down! Don't get me started on neckties.

But what we do here doesn't matter .. it's what you're comfortable with, where you live.

Everyone here in my neck of the woods wears flip flops everywhere. I wear them all the time. Just make sure your nails are trimmed. Long nails with flip flops is quite gross.

With comfortable shoes or 'birks' then they would have to remember to scowl and look agitated, where as if your feet hurt it's automatic.

Flipflops are not comfortable, that thing between the toes is a deal breaker. But then I got some 'birks' and they are my preferred footwear.

Get yourself a pumice stone and scrub the bottom of your feet and your heels with it. Get yourself some foot scrub - you can find it at WalMart or Target. Make sure you have a good nail clipper - Revlon makes some good ones.

You'll want to wear flip-flops and sandals all the time it's warm after awhile. Your feet can be socially acceptable!

Thanks for the tips! That would be cheaper (and less embarrassing) than going in for a pedicure.
