Health Tip: Choose a Sturdy Pair of Flip-Flops

(HealthDay News) -- Flip-flops are a convenient and comfortable alternative during the warmer months. Choosing the right pair can help keep your feet healthy and safe.

The American Podiatric Medical Association offers this advice:

  • Shop for flip-flops made of soft, high-quality leather to help protect against blisters.

  • Make sure the flip-flops bend at the balls of the feet, but aren't so flimsy that they bend in half.

  • Check that the flip-flops fit well. Your foot should never hang off the edge.

  • Replace worn flip-flops with a new pair.
