My feet are happy to be back in the deep South. With the exception of a few truly cold days, I can wear sandals most days. True, many days people think I am crazy for wearing a pair of $9 brown flip flops in 50 degree weather. My feet don't feel cold, and I do make exceptions on very wet or cold days.
I slide the flops on my feet because I have arthritis in the joints of my largest toe on my left foot. I've seen the x-ray films. I tasted bile when the doctor pointed out the bony spurs which were causing the pain. Still get queasy. Shoes that put pressure on that joint cause severe pain, which is why I choose the flip flops. I bought my mother a pair of these same flip flops in black. I might have to regift them to me.
Do I need to say that these cheap, can wear them in the shower, flip flops are my favorite shoe? Oh, yeah, are they!
What about you? What are your absolutely, positively, no questions asked favorite pair of shoes?
