Should I start wearing flip flops?

23 posts in this topic

I'm a guy that never wore flip flops, mainly because I like to walk fast and I'm also very embarrassed to show off my feet because I think they're ugly. But so many people today wear them. Sometimes I feel silly for being the only person outside in the summer that's not wearing them. And besides, I always heard that women like men that show confidence and the main reason I never wore flip flops is because I'm not confident enough. So, I'm wondering if wearing them will make me look more confident and will, therefore, attract more women. Makes me wonder...

So, should I start wearing flip flops?

Holy crap at the reasoning. Flip flops don't make you more manly. They are however convenient, which is why you should want to wear them.

Neither is waxing body hair, but it's what women like! Women don't always prefer more manly these days.

I can't believe that you can't make up your own mind to wear flip flops or not ... might as well go bear foot...

Well, I hate them. That's my personal opinion. I can't imagine being comfortable in them when taking long walks and running. But 99.9% of people in the summer wear flip flops. It makes me self conscious. So that's why I can't make up my mind. This is a fad I can not get myself into, but am considering pushing myself into it because of the pressure of society.

I seem to only wear flip flops when I go out now, unless to a nice resteraunt or work of course. With summer here I can get a nice tan on my feet so they dont look bad ha

Holy god the advice in this thread is ######ing retarded.

 

Here's how this works..

 

Benefits:

  • Cooler than shoes (due to no socks)
  • Easier to get in/out of.
  • Cheap and easily replaced when you lose one (and you will)
  • Comfortable (for things other than long long distance)
  • You aren't risking your real shoes when you go to the beach or whatever else.

Cons:

  • Not the classiest of apparel
  • Suck in the wet.
  • Some places won't let you in with them on.

Others:

  • No-one will care about the aesthetics of your feet if they don't have to interact with them
  • The fact you have to ask if wearing flip flops will help means you already need to work on your confidence..

 

To me the pros outweigh the cons, but I prefer real shoes too. I wear flip flops when appropriate (going to the beach, ducking out the shops etc) and shoes the rest of the time.

 

 

Who gives a ###### what other people think of you :\ If you have any self confidence at all, this is a non-issue.

It's a kind of shoe. You don't wear dress blacks for these kind of activities, why would you think wearing thongs (Australian for flip flops) is any different?

 

You can run in them, and you can walk long distances in them, but ultimately you should pick your shoes based on what you're doing. Like I said, if you're going to the beach or just ducking out or whatever, just wear them. You just need to decide when you feel it's appropriate to wear them.

 

Also, if you hate them, why would you ever?

Crocs are still better than flip flop for walking/light jogs purposes.

I like wearing them. But I don't know what kind of people go around inspecting feet and criticising. They're comfy and good in summer. If you want to wear them, do it, who gives a toss what people think anyway? ;)

 

But if you hate them as previously mentioned, then don't :P if people comment, just say you don't like them. End of story.
