Dr. Johanna Youner, board-certified podiatric surgeon and a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, cautions viewers that flip flops are not meant for walking and should be worn only in the pool or shower. They do not offer proper foot support and force the toes to work too hard. If you must wear flip flops outside of the shower, try to wear a newer, more supportive pair that promotes stability and arch support.
