August is around the corner and is truly a mixed bag of experiences.
Soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the last 4 weeks of summertime can be overshadowed by the realization that school is around the corner and back to school shopping really needs to get done.
So before responsibility takes over and while the sunshine and blue skies are perfect for time spent by the pool or enjoying a cool drink at your favorite outdoor café, let’s take a minute to talk about the favorite shoe of summer, the flip-flop.
Flip-flops are known as the icon of summer style; however, wearing them often can make your feet hurt when worn for more than a short time, causing foot pain or even causing permanent damage to your feet.
They not only fit everyone with ease, they’re also the best answer for that quick trip down the street for ice-cream. However, flip-flops have big, and some might say huge drawbacks and the reasons for this are obvious but most often ignored.
- Don’t offer arch support, heel cushion, or shock absorption
- Lack of support may affect your stability.
- Regularly wearing flip-flops can stretch and strain the fascia, that little sheet of tissue that connects your heel bone to the base of your toes.
- The strain, referred to as Plantar Fasciitis, can mean severe heel pain.
- Your feet lack of protection.
- They are not comfortable for long walks and at times, the thong-style friction can irritate your toes.
Even though the number of drawbacks might be enough reason to stop wearing flip-flops, the truth is you might not be willing to give them up any time soon.
The great news is that Tuli’s X Brace can save your feet right during the last, amazing month of summer. Slip-on a pair of X Braces, step into those favorite flip-flops and don’t miss one day of everything August has to offer.
