Bethesda, MD (Vocus) May 12, 2010 -- The heat of summer is rapidly approaching, and feet everywhere are happily stepping out into warm, sunny weather. Flip-flops, a summer clothing staple for many, have again walked their way off of the beach and into our day-to-day lives. However, opting for the wrong pair of this carefree kind of footwear can lead to blisters, tendinitis and other foot problems. The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) urges consumers to think before buying to avoid falling victim to a “flip-flop fiasco.”

“Just because a flip-flop has a fun look does not mean it is healthy for your feet,” said APMA President and podiatrist Dr. Kathleen Stone. “As a general rule, most flip-flops on the market should not be worn excessively during the day. Wearing them in moderation is key.”

Lack of support in a flip-flop can leave the wearer susceptible to sprained ankles and ligament injuries, and the limited protection offered to feet can mean a higher chance of cuts, scrapes and stubbed toes. The following APMA flip-flop “do’s” and “don’ts” will keep consumers from falling victim to flip-flop related foot problems this summer:
