NOT ALL FLIP FLOPS ARE CREATED EQUALLY

THE BENEFITS OF
SUPPORTIVE SANDALS

As flip flop season ramps up, it's important to keep in mind that not all of them are created equally, according to Vionic Innovation Lab expert and podiatrist Dr. Jackie Sutera.

Dr. Jackie advises us to look for flip flops "with a thicker sole, heavier straps and a little bit of arch support" to keep you moving in comfort and to help mitigate the risk of flat flip flops.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO MITIGATE THE RISKS?

Stay away from the really thin ones that we all have in every color because they're so inexpensive and cute, [instead favoring styles] with a thicker sole, heavier straps and a little bit of arch support.

- Dr. Jackie

WHY ARE TRADITIONAL
FLIP FLOPS SO BAD?

You have to over-grip when you're wearing these shoes, because there's no backstrap. There is a myriad of issues that can arise from this, including stress fractures, heel pain, bunions and hammer toes.
