The flip flop has a perfect function, it keeps the feet cool. I would however not wear them into the city, they do still have their time and place in society. But I will wear them into my sleepy town where I currently reside on occasion. The reason it is a no to the city is more dirt, the blackness of grime your nobbled hooves will pick up is not pleasant and if like me you walk a lot when in a city you will not last long before the inevitable ache sets in.
I used to live in the flip flop in the 2000s into the 2010s but I was young and lived in jeans, t-shirts and flip flops, it is just the way we were. But I am not 20 and I’m 40 so should I still get away with this look. Maybe not the one of my twenties even though it was quite simple but I think part of that time is behind me. But I can still pull off a nice flip flop look at the right time. It is not like I am going to a restaurant, that sound as I move across the polished floor to my table, flip, flop, flip, flop, and echoing of a holiday breakfast I once had in Spain.
