Have you ever tripped, stubbed a toe, or had an embarrassing moment while walking in flip flops? Well it is quite typical to have these things happen in flip flops. Just the name of flip flops tells you that they have a mischievous way about them, they were named after the sound they make. Sandals are usually more sturdy because they have multiple straps on the heels and foot that "lock" your feet in place. If you are clumsy, try wearing sandals in stead of flip flops this summer.
