Today is a big day in California, the land of the flip flop…It’s National Flip Flop Day!
Yes, the day we celebrate the shoe we love to wear!
Now, I haven’t always been a flip flop fan. In fact, I’ve taught style classes to groups of women and I’ve said to avoid wearing them unless in your own yard or going to the pool. My thought being that you never know when you’ll run into a client or potential client and you always want to look your best. I still believe this but I’ve relaxed it up a bit. If your footwear is neat (not falling apart, stained or so worn out the thrift store would toss them) and appropriate for your look, then go ahead wear a flip flop. Just avoid them for actual client meetings!
I do recommend if you are choosing to rock the flip flop, and will be on your feet for many hours, that you invest in a pair that have support as well as style. Wearing a shoe with no support will leave you with an aching back, legs and feet! You do have options.
“Vionic shoes offers flip flops hug the arch of the foot for full support. With Vionic’s podiatrist-designed, supportive Orthaheel Technology, the gravitational forces that cause the arch of the feet to collapse can be reversed, raising them back into their neutral position helping to re-align the entire leg and preventing plantar fasciitis, so wearers can move to move dynamically in complete comfort as intended.
Vionic with Orthaheel Technology offers the ONLY sandals recommended by both the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) and renowned integrative medicine doctor,Andrew Weil, MD. Vionic. Vionic is also endorsed by celebrity fitness trainer Juliet Kaska’s (clientele includes Kerry Washington, Ali Larter, Stacy Keibler, Pink, Kate Walsh and more).” (source)
I appreciate the arch support found in the “Tide” flip flop sent to me from Vionic. They absorb the shock as you walk, giving stress relief to your feet, legs and knees.
And, thankfully with all the technology involved in creating these flip flops, Vionic keeps things girly with the extra bling! The sequin design satisfies my desire for keeping things pretty!

I was gifted Vionic Tide Sequins flip flops for review. All opinions are my own.
