Health Tip: Want to Wear Sandals?

Make sure they're worn appropriately

(HealthDay News) -- Sandals and flip-flops are a good way for feet to beat the summertime heat, but you should make sure they're worn in appropriate situations.

Washington University Orthopedics suggests:

  • People who choose to wear a stylish pair of sandals should only wear them to a casual event, such as a barbeque. Avoid sandals while exercising, biking or playing a sport.
  • Slip on a pair of flip flops at the pool. They can actually help strengthen feet, as long as they are worn on flat, even surfaces and not for long periods of walking.
  • Keep a pair of athletic shoes and socks in the car so you can switch into a more suitable shoe, if necessary.
