Permanent damage to the toes
When wearing flip-flops, the foot is forced to assume a “pincer” position in order not to lose its grip and, in the long run,
this unnatural posture causes the knuckles of the toes to bend, causing the so-called “hammer toe.”
Aggravation of calluses
The “pincer grip” taken by the toes to keep the flip flops on the feet can cause calluses, especially those that form between
the big toe and second toe where the thong strap rests, making wearing them even more painful.
