Do You Have Flip-Flop Feet?

Everyone loves wearing flip-flops in the summer. But with them can come filthy, crusty, flip-flop feet.

As Marie Claire puts it, flip-flop feet are "Those crusty, blackened soles you see on the streets." The women's mag says the feet are "like a plague — spreading dirt and general nastiness."

Well, that's a little extreme ... but we'll admit we've suffered from flip-flop feet. In fact, we used to have a boyfriend who made us wash our feet in the tub in the summer when we got home (we broke up with him).

But for the love of flip-flops, we'll tolerate the grime.

    That's the main reason I avoid sandals and wear regular sneakers. Other people's feet always look weird anyway. :Þ

    Now, about this royal "we"... it's irritating. Speaking of oneself in first-person plural annoys me even more than third-person singular:

    "In fact, we used to have a boyfriend who made us wash our feet in the tub in the summer when we got home (we broke up with him)."

    We are not amused.

    I don't like my feet looking gross. So I take very good care of them. I would see people at work with flip-flop feet. and well it was sick. one person's heels were all yellow and crusty looking. I noticed this because I had to wait to wash my hands in the restroom, and happened to glance at her loud flopping shoes. i don't like the sight of anyone's feet. I only wear sandals around my house.

    I don't know who's feets their looking at, but I don't know anyone who's feet get crusty from wearing flip flops.
    That's disgusting!

    Never wear flip flops. I can't stand that piece between my toes, it hurts. Plus, my feet aren't pretty enough to go public.

    Ok...I don't really have anything to say about question content.

    Something does bug me though. speaking of yourself in first-person plural is annoying as hell.

    But I get the "stains" on heel and the ball of my big toe cause my flip-flops are black. If my feet do happen to get dirty...you know, cause I actually walk around in them pretty much most of the year...I do this nifty thing called bathing, but that's me. ^__^

    Ew. It's not wearing flip-flops that make your feet all dirty, it's being a nasty human being that makes your feet dirty. Learn some hygiene. I wear flip-flops most of the year, and the only evidence of that is a tan line, not crust and crud.

    Well, they don't look gross because they are in and out of the surf all day, but in my country they are almost compulsory...and we call them thongs. So I would say thong-feet :)

    I have multiple tan lines on my feet. I have a flip flop tan and two tan lines from low socks and lower socks from work. It's work keeping the tan lines under control but I DO HAVE CLEAN FEET!!

    I hardly ever wear flip-flops. Only if I'm at the beach or just chilling in my own back yard. Even then, in said cases, I prefer having bare feet. In public though? Sneakers, flats, heels, whatever, just give me a real pair of shoes. I live in the city, wearing flip-flops downtown? BAD idea.

    I wear flip flops all the time. And guess what, my feet are perfectly clean and soft. Thanks to this wonderful thing called a shower. Try taking the extra two minutes to wash your filthy feet and you won't have that problem.

    i have kiwi feet. I'm from new zealand, and here one of our national symbols is jandals. Why do you call them flip flops??
  • I am me Habeiba 2010/07/29 13:17:22
    I am me
    We call the flip flops because of the sound the make... some people call them thongs, because of the post inbetween the first and second toes...
  • Habeiba I am me 2010/07/29 21:08:05
    haha have you ever heard the word jandals?
