Yes I hear it all the time too. Luckily the flip-flop season is almost over.

What ever you do, stay away from Hawaii; the flip-flop is the state shoe.

I hate them, and I frequently tell my coworker who wears them in the summer that I hate them. I hope when Fred becomes prez he puts a stop to this insanity.

Kill the terrorists

Secure the Borders

Punch the Hippies

Maul the flip-floppers.

Flip flops may be nearing end of season, but I don’t think Crocs are going away anytime soon.

I don’t just mean flip-flops...I mean these shoes that are also called “mules,” which are sexy in the bedroom...but not in the workplace....

Be thankful for them.

If a person is so lazy and cares so little about his/her job that he/she would wear flip/flops to work, then you know that he/she is not a person to trust with anything important.

Think of them as "never going to make it" footwear.

Oh, by the way, you ought to see what the women in courtrooms get away with wearing these dys...it is horrendous! Baggy flour sacks, mules with hairy toes sticking out, while the men still need suits and ties. I make it a point to still wear closed toe and vey nice knee length dress with jacket or knee length skirt and jacket, or slacks and jacket with closed toe shoes, but the wierd outfits many of my compatriots wear is too outrageous. a well dressed male lawyer asked me “what’s she wearing?’ and I answered “Something that is way too big” —this female lawyer had on a big long ribbed bag of a dress that dragged on the floor and a matching jacket that reached to her knees....she looked awful.

Not just flip-flops. Any shoe without a strap or something to hold the heel in the shoe is subject to making that noise.

If I could, I’d wear them every day. I particularly like the cheap $.99 jobies form Target. Black, thin, no arch support, etc.

Luv em.

Crocs?
That has to be the stupidest shoe ever invented.
No wait, they are modeled after the wooden dutch shoes.
They are some of the most butt-ugly products ever marketed on the American idiots. People actually go out in PUBLIC wearing those!?!?!?!?
I would not be caught dead in those “tard” shoes.

Half (or more) of DC wears flip flops! Metro had an article in the Post about one “captive shoe” stuck in an escalator every day. Idiots I say, but then again not a ridiculous as high heels for safety.

Man, you need to learn a little mental discipline.

If a noise bothers you to the point of posting vanities you might need a vacation. One thing you can certainly do is stop focusing on the noise that bothers you.

You could always listen to a recording of Hillary's voice for 48 hours straight and then see how offensive those shoes are in comparison.

LOL, Bannie...it's where the women who wear them wear the "upscale" mules...their feet stick to the leather lining on the sole then peel away...hence the SUCK-Flap.

That's why I was hesitant on designating them just "flip-flops."

I wear flipflops & sandals and I happen to have very nice looking toes . I always get complimented on how nice my feet are which annoys me. I don't find feet very pretty, to me they are just feet. I take care of my feet & I paint my toenails. I do not however wear them in places where you shouldn’t. What bugs me is the tap tap of high heels in hallways. Drives me crazy. I always wonder why women wear heels that are narrow and hard to walk in.

You really don't know what you are missing. Other than at a wedding I attended, nothing else has been on my feet since May. What you really have to wonder about is somebody that reacts emotionally to others' shoes.

"Half (or more) of DC wears flip flops!"

Given the things I have seen from DC, I stand by my statement. They can't be trusted with anything important.

I have a 98 uear old aunt- a New Yorker- who was a fashion plate in her day. She said there were more terrorists making women’s shoes these days than there were in the Mideast.
It is a huge issue, by the way.
