For Texans, we don’t just wear flip flops, we live in them.
We have summer flip flops and winter flip flops.
We have the crappy flip flops and fancy flip flops.
For me, I’ve been all of the world in my flips flops and have memories attached to each pair including my wedding flip flops (no, there not white.)
So it’s fitting that that on National Flip Flop Day, June 19, we take a moment to celebrate the all powerful flip flop.
1. The first flip flops date back to 4,000 B.C. in Egypt.
2. There are more than 22 references to sandals in the Bible.
4. The world’s most expensive pair of flip flops will set you back $18,000.
5. Wearing flip flops can be hazardous on the feet, ankles and legs as well as harmful for posture and back health, but podiatrist-designed flip flops like Vionic Tide Sandals can hug the arch of the foot to give you the support you need to help realign the leg and posture. So basically, just like any pair of shoes, you still have to be smart about your flip flops just as you do your heels.
But let’s be honest, before you put on any pair of flip flops on your feet, you gotta have a good pedicure. There’s nothing worse than wearing a pair of flippies and then look down to see the cuticles and heels look like the Sedona desert. So Etre Bell, Northpark’s newest med spa is giving one lucky reader a mani/pedi package to make sure your toes look terrific before slipping on another pair of flip flops.
