Are Flips Flops Worst Shoes Invented?

It's super cool to be able to just throw on a pair of flip-flops now that the weather's warming, right? Wrong, says Esquire  writer Christine Flammia, who considers the flimsy sandals to be the  worst shoe ever created. "Do you honest-to-god enjoy the strappy tan  lines they give your feet, or the way your soles turn black with dust  and dirt and fecal matter when you walk?" she wonders about flip-flop  devotees. "Do you like the unsupportive base, and how it forces your  foot to flirt with plantar fasciitis? Do you like waking up in the  middle of the night with foot cramps, your feet literally begging you to  stop wearing the shoes that destroy both your muscle fibers and any  chance at being stylish?"
