Why wear sandals? This question comes up on so many occasions. It is like there are rules to the etiquette of sandal wear.
Can you wear socks with sandals? Dress wear and sandals? Can you golf in sandals? Many people have their interpretation of when sandal wear is appropriate. In many countries and especially where there is a beach culture, sandals are the footwear of choice year-round.
The benefits of wearing sandals on your feet vary with the activities that you are interested in. Sandals obviously do not suffice for any activity that requires proper foot protection. Flip flops are great for use in public areas and can protect your feet from fungal infections, warts, and lacerations. They are great for wearing indoors as well and takes only seconds to put on or take off.
Sandals are stylish. At the beach, at parties or even at business meetings, there is a wide range of sandals that are available. From bright colored flip flops to the strappy high heel, to casual wedge-style platforms, there are enough styles out there to suit any occasion.
There are many types of sandals on the market today that not only look good, they keep your feet happy with good ventilation and foot circulation. Sandals are even making winter appearances in cooler climate areas. Name brands such as O’Neill and Sanuk are beginning to produce sandals with quilted flannel and fleece attached to straps, or stitched wool socks lined in polo fleece for the die-hard sandal wearer.
Comfort isn't all that sandals offer. With the wedged heel and midsole, the person wearing this kind of sandals looks much taller because of the added height. Due to the angle of the foot-bed, whoever wears wedge sandals will have their legs look longer and buns look tighter and firmer!
There are variations of styles and designs for strap uppers. Sometimes, the uppers have thick straps that make the footwear look more casual. But there are those that have slim and thin straps that make the footwear look much more fashionable and chic. These thin straps are normally arranged in such a way that it accentuates the slim figure of a women's ankles and the sexy appearance of the feet.
