Living in Florida makes flip flops an unavoidable part of daily life. So how can you go about choosing the "right flip flop" for you and your kids? While flip flops will never be as supportive as a good pair of sneakers, there are few things to look for.
- Arch support built into the sandal. Don't confuse arch support with cushion. Cushion may feel nice, but is it firm enough to actually support your arch?
- A stiff sole. Many flip flops are made of thin flimsy rubber. Look for a sandal that you can not bend in half.
- Proper fit. One of the benefits of flip flops is that there are many different designs. Make sure that the straps are not rubbing on any pressure points, such as bunions or hammertoes.
