In Arlington, Danger is Underfoot

The ubiquitous brown flip flop may be hazardous to your health, according to an article in the Washington Post.

The Post reports that podiatrists are treating a rash of flip flop-related injuries in the D.C. area, including one District-based foot doctor who treats at least one flip flop injury per day during the warm-weather months.

The health dangers of flip flops include stress fractures of the metatarsals, plantar fasciitis, cuts, bruises and sunburn, according to the article. But the scientific evidence is a bit thin.

“Very few studies have looked at the pros and cons of flip-flops,” the Post notes. Perhaps researchers can interview a few of Arlington’s bevy of dudes in brown flip flops.

Said the tipster who sent us the link: “Breaking news! Residents of Clarendon need to be alerted immediately.”
