<strong>1. Risk of bacteria and fungi</strong>

They expose your feet to harmful bacteria like staphylococcus, risking severe infections and even amputation. Additionally, contagious fungal infections like warts and athlete’s foot are common. Stay cautious!

<strong>2. Slow pace</strong>

Auburn University study compares flip-flops and sneakers on human gait: findings reveal shorter steps and support time with flip-flops.

<strong>3. Increased risk of falls</strong>

Wearing flip-flops requires constant ground contact and foot grip, affecting walking stability and raising the risk of tripping.

<strong>4. Heel damage</strong>

Wearing flip-flops for extended periods can lead to severe heel pain due to the repeated impact and thin sole.

<strong>5. Blistering</strong>

Flip-flops’ sole attachment point is the side straps, which constantly rub against the skin, causing painful blisters that can become open wounds and lead to bacterial infections.

<strong>6. Permanent damage to the toes</strong>

Wearing them forces the foot into an unnatural “pincer” position, leading to toe deformities like hammer toe over time.

<strong>7. Aggravation of calluses</strong>

Wearing flip-flops can lead to painful calluses due to the toe grip required to keep them on, particularly between the big toe and second toe where the thong strap rests.

<strong>8. Impaired posture</strong>

Flat shoes lack proper heel support, disrupting weight distribution, blood circulation, and posture, especially with prolonged wear.

<strong>9. Danger of tendonitis and bunions</strong>

Wearing them alters posture, putting more strain on leg joints. That can lead to foot problems like pain, tendonitis, and bunions.

<strong>10. Toxic materials</strong>
