As summer draws to an end, most of y’all will begin to bring out your winter clothes, and start packing away your summer clothes and flip flops. However, after reading this infographic, you might want to toss your flip flops away and purchase a supportive pair of strappy sandals instead.

Personally, flip flops have always hurt my feet. My toes always cramp up, and I always feel like my arches have collapsed and the end of each use. I’m sure many of y’all have had similar experiences. Instead, if it’s too hot to wear closed toed shoes, try wearing a sandal with an arch, or something with a strap at the back of the heel to securely attach it to your foot.
