This Saturday Old Navy will be selling their flip flops for $1. One dollar is very cheap and flip flops are very versatile in the summer. But, please, I beg you, do not make these colorful bargains your MAIN SHOE. (This goes for you, too, guys.)
They are great for messing around the house. They are great for the pool and the beach. I’ll admit they make it easy at the airport for vacations. But they don’t belong everywhere. I don’t care to see them at restaurants. I don’t care to see them in houses of worship. I don’t care to see them in professional settings or at wedding showers.
Are there dressier versions that can take you farther? Yes – better materials, some embellishments and a slight heel change the game significantly. But let’s try to leave the casual crutch where it belongs, shall we?
Is it just me? Have flip flops become entirely overused?
