 Foot Flops is a Jackson Hole, Wyoming-based line of flip-flops that are heat-molded to the wearer’s feet to create the most precise arch support. The sandals are made of a blend of EVA and a patent-pending thermoplastic layer that is heated in a conventional oven before being removed and stepped on by the consumer. The foot is then rocked side to side with equal weight to allow for an optimal mold, and within 10 to 15 minutes, the flip-flops cool completely. The collection is expected to be ready for distribution at the start of next year.   

Wearing flip-flops for a long period of time can be harmful for the feet. To learn more, speak to Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey. Dr. Conforti will assist you with all of your foot and ankle needs.

Flip-Flops and Feet

When the weather starts warming up, people enjoy wearing flip-flops.  Flip-flops are comfortable, stylish, and easy to slip on and off, perfect for any summer beach goer.  However, these shoes can cause harm to the feet.

How Can Flip-Flops Affect Me Long-Term?

  • Ankle problems
  • Hip problems
  • Lower back problems
  • Pain in the balls of the feet
  • Problems with foot arches
  • Changes in the way you walk

Are there injuries associated with flip-flops?

Yes.  Since flip-flops are relatively weak and do not provide the same amount of support as sneakers, people who wear flip-flops are more susceptible to injuries. On top of that, the open nature of the shoe makes your feet more prone to other problems, such as cuts and even infections.  Common injuries and ailments include:

  • Sprained ankles
  • Blisters
  • Infections
  • Cuts and Scrapes
