Once again I must get on my shoe soapbox. This time it’s about those rubber flip-flops that everyone seems to think go with everything. If you’re at the lake, at summer camp, in the garden or just around the house then I don’t care how often you wear them or what shape they’re in. However, I’m getting tired of seeing them in restaurants, churches and even the White House. Since when did we become so lazy as a society that we allow ourselves to wear cheap, dirty rubber flip-flops to meet the President?
Not only are they unattractive, but I’m amazed at how many chewed-up, dirty pair I see. Last time I was in Old Navy they were selling for $2.50 per pair so I don’t know why anyone would still wear them after the dog chewed on them. Invest in a new pair! It’s cheaper than a tall latte at Starbucks!
So the next time you’re invited to a weddding or attending church, please do everyone a favor and leave your flip-flops at home. They might be trendy and comfortable, but for just a few hours you can show the world how nice you look.
