Beware the Flimsy Flip-Flop

With summer just around the corner, flip-flops are starting to make an appearance in anticipation for warm, sunny weather. Flip-flops are a great choice of footwear for the beach or the pool deck. They are easy to slip-on and off and keep your feet cool during the summer months, but beware the "flimsy flip-flop". These unsupportive flip-flops lack structure and can place a lot of unnecessary strain on your feet. They can be the cause of a multitude of foot conditions ranging from Plantar Fasciitis and Metatarsalgia, to something as simple as bruised toes. Instead of buying flimsy flip-flops this summer, try picking up a pair of supportive flip-flops. 

Brands such as Sole, Naot, and Montrail are all great! Stylish options are available at all Kintec locations. They have arch supports and metatarsal pads that provide support for your feet. There is also additional toe space to prevent you from stubbing your toes. These are great sandals that you can wear all day to prevent unnecessary foot pain. 

Have a look at our selection of supportive flip-flops on our web store!
