Flip Flops have become one of the most popular summer shoes. In Houston, flip flops can be found year round! They are not good shoes to wear daily because they don't have the support that most people need while doing lots of walking. They make great beach and pool shoes though!
If you have to do a good amount of walking in them, be sure to wear flip flops that are more "healthy." The American Podiatric Medical Association has a list of flip flops that have recieved their Seal of Acceptance. Be careful not to be one of the unfortunate many who I see for flip flop related foot injuries in my Houston podiatry practice!
