Why do girls like to wear flip flops so much?

It's unclassy and sometimes they just look so sweaty, stinky, and nasty. Why would you wear something like that? Sweaty, stinky, and yuck? Bleh.

And I find it funny how girls spend so much money making their sweaty feet look "pretty" but it still doesn't take away from the fact that they're takign their feet out and whiping their sweat all over the floor GROSS.
Girls are supposed to be class, not look like white trash!
Those who don't believe me, 7 out of 10 girls walk around with flip flops like these... link
Fine you can say your opinion I won't interrupt.
Girls deny that they get sweaty feet... You don't believe me, then seriously smell your frickin flops that you wear all day! Then tell us!

What's Your Opinion?

  • I'll agree that flip flops don't look classy at all, and they make a horrible sound when you walk with them. But your feet are actually way less likely to smell with flip flops than if they've been trapped inside your socks and shoes on a hot summer day. They're nice to wear when it's really hot out and you want your feet to breath. And when I wear them I usually get the kind with the dark bottoms so they don't look all dirty and gross. Like these: link

    • Haha yeah all girls who don't think my phobia is rational...wear you flip flops all day tomorrow and smell them and get back to us. LOL

    • The sole.

    • Bottom part? You mean the sole? Or the thong part? This is a weird conversation lmao

    Flip flips are the best!! They're so much more freeing and comfortable than other shoes. They make your legs look longer by not cutting you off at your ankles and it helps to make sure your feet are tan in the summer. Your feet would get super sweaty if you wore socks and shoes all summer in the heat! They're also really easy when you're in a hurry to leave you can just slip them on and kick them off when you want and they go with pretty much anything.

    Flip flops are disgusting and they are very bad for your feet. I don't know why anyone wears them, not just girls. Plus I live in a city, and see people wearing flip flops all the time in the summer. I don't understand it, because the city is so fucking dirty your feet will turn black from the dirt. Especially if you ride the subway.

    Holy fuck those flip flops were gross! Personally I rarely see women wearing gross flip flops. I have a collection of like ten sets of flip flops and sandals and if they get dirty, I wash them. My feet only sweat when I'm wearing close toed shoes, which is why I dislike closed toed shoes.
    Meet cleaner girls.
    And don't call anyone white trash bc of a clothing choice you jerk

    A lot of guys wear flip flops too.

  • I wear flip flops a lot because my favorite pair of black flats broke. In the summer I wear flip flops because it is hot out and in the winter I wear flip flops because I honestly hate wearing shoes.

  • Tell this to people from desert cultures who frequently use flip flops! I'd love to hear the earful you'd get!

  • its comfortable, casual, practical, cute... I can't believe you think flip flops are all these things you said, it doesn't make sense to me :D yeah, they get sweaty sometimes, but unclassy? not at all. but I respect your opinion..

  • They're cheap, easy to wear, comfy, and I am too lazy to wear shoes all the time in the summer lol

  • bc their comfy and I wash mine

  • haha so we can feel comfortable!

  • I am with you on this, can't stand flipflops! There is always a better shoe choice

  • It sure beats soaking my feet in sweaty smelly sneakers all day. I prefer them to breathe, thank you very much. And I sure as hell am not gonna screw up my back, hips, and legs, and be in pain all day, just to wear "pretty" shoes, to make your day easier. Why do guys wear ugly ass shoes that are nasty and falling apart, or that have a stench that'll knock out anyone in a 20 foot radius, as soon as he takes em off? How is that any better?

    • LOL. Give him hell, sister!

  • They're very comfortable.

  • your feet get really hot in the summer in sneakers and stuff, I love flip flops...they are more comfy and they keep me cooler, usually when I wear reg. shoes I'm actually warmer...my eet actually don't sweat when I wear them and my feet don't stink...the downside is sometimes your feet get dirty and then some girls can't run in them, and they break easily. sure they aren't classy but they are better in the warm weather.

  • I hate that word. People who use the word "class" or "classy" think that they are so much better than everyone else. Just because I have more money than you doesn't make me a better person. You know?! And telling someone they have no class, or aren't classy is just saying that you think you are so much better than everyone else that you have to use the word "class" on a regular basis. Sorry, just saw that word, and it erked me, and I had to vent. :PTo the question. Most girls don't wear light colored flip flops because they get dirty so easily. I personally only wear dark colored rubber flip flops. If you wear dark colored shoes dirt doesn't show up as well. Also, wearing rubber flip flops means that stuff doesn't stick to them, it kinda just wipes right off. I wear flip flops in the summer and spring because it's hot and my feet will sweat more if they are in a closed toe shoe. And they will smell WAY worse. Also, I'm an athlete and after I get done with a running workout I just want to get my feet out of those shoes and put on flip flops.. and after gymnastics it's a lot easier to get your foot into a flip flop with tape on then when you have tennis shoes on. I love flip flops. And I will continue wearing them because they are comfortable and easy to put on in the summer.. who wants to put a closed toe shoe on after swimming or after going to the beach?! You just have a weird problem and should get help. Besides, guys wear flip flops and have WAY sweatier feet than girls...

  • so are sandals ok?

  • theyre so comfy and they go with everything! lol

  • You can judge a girl by the type of shoes she wears.FlipFlops = I don't care about how I look. I have no class and I choose the easy way out. Always.

    • 3mo

      Hope you're kidding

  • dont

  • Comfort! I love my rainbows. And pullen off corectly, they can be classy. I guarentee that you could not go around in 5 inch heels for one day, let alone most of your life.

  • Comfy, cute, versitile, and cooling. And socks and sneakers are way heavy, and id rather not have my sweat soaked up by a rag and stuck to my feet. Some people swear more than others, so your question doesn't really apply to everyone. Plus, I use a soothing foot deoderant :)

  • Convenient and comfortable

  • They're comfortable and stylish; I don't know what kind of girls you mess with but my feet definitely don't get sweaty, nor stinky. I have pretty feet , thank you .

    • this one! ha ha love it! "I don't know what kind of girls you mess with but my feet definitely don't get sweaty, nor stinky. I have pretty feet"

  • They're convenient..and beee tee double u, your picture that you showed us was of cheap old navy flip flops that are only a dollar, of course they would have ugly feet shiz on them.

  • cause they go with almost everything, and they're super comfy :)

  • Reasons that girls like to wear flip-flops:1. They are easy to slip on and get out of.2. They are mad comfy3. Some girls like the sound of them4. You can just wash them off to make them look pretty again5. They are really not expensive6. Your feet can overheat in closed shoes in hot climates7. Girls like to show off their pedicures8. Flip- flops can go with any kind of outfitI LOVE FLIP FLOPS :)

    • Best answer.

    • You deserve best answer.

  • they're comfortable and easy

  • hey, just because we're girls doesn't mean we have to struggle to look fancy all the time, to wear heels or tight clothes..do you actually know how uncomfortable can heels become if worn often? flip flops are a great alternative to sandals because they're more easy and comfortable. and I think they look good with pretty much everything. you shouldn't be trippin that much about that! they're not gross or something, it's all in your weird mind! anyways people will/should wear anything they want lol. it's not like you're gonna take every girl's flip flops and throw them away. get used to this look on us :).

    • I agree! And heels shorten your tendon, making it harder to exercise properly, if worn on a daily basis for a long time..

  • the ones with shiny bottoms don't leave marks. I have a pair like that but they can get slippery if its wet.

  • also most flip flops aren't that dirty as your link

  • to show off our toes (hopefully painted)cuz they cutethey keep your feet cool not sweatyeasy to slip onnot as clunky as normal shoesgo great with certain outfitswen its hotwen your at the beach and don't want sand in your shuz

  • Honestly, in the summer it gets so hot that I hate wearing shoes. Flip flops are airy and easy to take on an off and they come in so many cute styles and colours and go with just about any outfit...plus I like to do my nails and flip flops are the only everyday shoes you can wear to show them off:)

  • flip flops are very comfy to girls and they also show off their painted toe nails, and there is such a thing as a nice looking flip flop. Besides, unlike guys, girls are not going to go around wearing heavy sneakers in the middle of summer! its just not comfy!

  • tennis shoes make people sweat more because they are closed off. flip flops are open therefore no sweat.

  • I definitely agree, I think flip flops are okay for the beach and stuff but not for everyday wear.

  • I agree with you, I think flip flops are classless, but that's my opinion

  • because they are so easy, no socks required, no laces to tie, no straps to buckle, you can slip them on as you run out the door. flats are nice for this reason too, but flip flops are more comfortable then flats

  • WHO CARES IF THEY ARE SWEAATYYY, you are not supposed to smell my feet anyway, so it's my problem no anyone else's :D seriously people, who cares about something irrelevant like flip flops?

    • Ha well that's not my problem

    • id smell your feet

  • i hate them. they stab between your toes and the NOISE drives me crazy. flipflopflipflop

  • I think Girls wear them so much becasue we like them their comfy and we usally can't have that loose cofort with running shoes or other types of shoes.

What Guys Said 39

    I pretty much always wear flip flops if I'm not working.

  • I'll have to disagree with you about flip flops on a girl unclassy because I see girls in the mall or in preppy places look absolutely fine. Every time I see a girls in flip flops I'm attracted to them and this is one of the reasons I like summer time.

  • That thwacking or flip flop sound is completely avoidable! I wear them from time to time and I have NEVER made that sound walking in them. Some people do this just to be annoying in my own personal opinion. As I have seen many folks, both girls and guys wear them WITHOUT making ANY NOISE, so it can be done if the wearer of said flip flops doesn't want to make that gad awful annoying sound.Also don't bother to come to my state, Florida, as flip flops are very common in my area, so if you really hate flip flops as bad as you claim, then please don't come to Florida, as these are pretty much the normal shoes all year long here! And yes, even in our Winter months when it may drop occasionally to below freezing for a day or two or in 48-55 degree weather folks are still wearing flip flops here in Florida!So Florida would definitely have you climbing the walls with just about every person wearing flip flops here.

    • Oh and I do agree with the one anonymous poster about flip flops should NOT be worn at work or at upscale restaurants. I too believe that to be an unprofessional look and just out of place in a fine dining establishment. And many restaurants here that are upscale have signs on their doors, NO FLIP FLOPS and they will turn you away if you're wearing them, doesn't matter how classy you think they look, these restaurants WILL NOT SEAT or SERVE YOU if you come to them in any type of Flip Flop!

  • Flipflops are okay for some things, WORK IS NOT ONE OF THEM! And neither should they be worn at UPSCALE RESTAURANTS! It's unprofessional and it is tacky. If I walk into what is "supposed" to be a professional office and the receptionist or any other female worker is wearing flip flops, they've just lost my business. Also flip flops are just as bad for your feet as high heels. Apparently a lot of people read only what they want and deny the other issues that these shoes (flip flops) can also create and cause. They can do just as much damage as high heels, just in a different part of the foot. It's been medically proven and their are many medical sites over the 'net that give this info. Yet, guys and girls continue to wear these shoes? They really ARE NOT at all as comfortable as all you folks claim either, after awhile they can cause blisters or pain between the toes when worn too long. If you're going to wear flip flops, in my opinion you'd be better off losing them and just be in barefeet, which is healthier than wearing flip flops. Quite frankly when I see folks wearing them, I just don't know why they bother to even put them on. They don't offer any protection of the foot, they have no real benefit to being worn. So why not just go out in barefeet and lose the shoes entirely? You say you wear them to be more like being in bare feet, so why have them if you're just going to wear some flimsy piece of plastic under your foot that serves no real purpose?

    • I've read some of those sites because I wear FF's from time to time myself. And yes, they can do some damage to your feet. But even so, I don't wear them EVERY DAY on EVERY HOUR like many of the girls do. So yes, High Heels can do damage, but so can flip flops, the only shoe recommended was a type of athletic shoe, being in bare feet was actually better than wearing any shoes at all. I live in Florida where both FF's and barefeet are common. No Boyfriend at work, but FF 's seem to OK at some.

  • On your last update, why not you pick up year sneakers and smell them?But its true; flip-flops are HOT; but they either end up exposing the uncleanness of a girl or it shows she CAN wear flip-flops with style. And people who are indifferent to this are just as unclean because they don't care how their feet look. I am so sure only a few will get my point.

    • Type: this line: No Boyfriend at work, but FF 's seem to OK at someShould have read: No Barefeet at work, but FF 's seem to be OK at some.Somehow the site interprets the shortened version of BareFeet, just using the B and F translates to "Boyfriend" as that IS NOT what I typed!

  • I don't know, but the slapping sound they make, truly pisses me off.

    • I agree and they can be worn WITHOUT making any of those sounds. It's all in how the end user walks in them and they can do it. They are worn by just about everyone here in Florida and 95% don't go around with the thwacking, slapping or flip flop sound when walking in them. I wear them and I have NEVER made that sound, not ever, walking in them. Those that do, annoy the hell out of me too!

  • well I have a foot fetish and I love it when girls wear flip-flops

  • hi I'm a virgin. thank you.

  • I am a guy and I wear flip flops bahahaha :).. get over yourself my friend.. open your eyes and live your life instead of worying about unneccessary sh*t like this.

  • Wow, people get really defensive about flip flops. That is a sad day. It's just flip flops people, love em or hate them, they're here to stay (at least for now). The OP has his own opinion and that's cool. Not sure why people are getting so inflamed and calling him a troll, but to each their own.

    • Thanks for defending me man.

  • Hmmm legit question. All things aside to me its like nails on a chalkboard when I hear that maddening sound flippity flopping around. But I think it depends on the person. Some people actually give a damn and take proper care of their feet and flip flops. Others have crusty crocodile skin, odor, sweat, and visible dirt. yeah I feel you. Generally people wear them to prevent odor and sweat, and to be comfortable. But uh it can get out of hand in terms of where people where them and how they wear them... makes my skin crawl just thinking about that.

  • Flip flops are extremely comfortable and there's nothing less classy about them than sneakers. Sure feet sweat, but they do it a lot less in sandals than in shoes. Just because you have some phobia of feet doesn't mean other people shouldn't dress how they like.

  • lol this dude successfully trolled 100 people...

  • Haha, you're kinda right in a way... but I still think flip-flops look nice on girls and it's their choice. No one says anything about a guy who wears sweaty and dirty sandals, so who should care if a girl wanted to do it?

  • Thats your opinion I think flip flops look great on girls!

  • Maybe they like the 'flip, flop' noise they make?

  • I actually agree with you. I think their love of the comfort of flip flops are clouding their judgement.

  • I like to wear flip flops dude. Not all the time. Cause if I'm going to be walking a lot I would sometimes prefer sneakers/shoes for more long term comfort, but then if it's really hot, and I'm not like going to be walking literally for a long time. And I figure girls probably have some of the same reasoning. And some probably think their more comfortable than shoes, cause your feet would just get as sweaty or even sweatier than what they would wearing sandals.I think you just think feet are repulsive or something and that's why it bothers you.I don't find feet attractive by any means, but sometimes on rare occasions I can see like where they could look cute wearing sandals some cloth shorts and like a tank top, with like their bikini underneath. lol

  • You posted a pic of white flip flops so yeah they will collect and have visible dirt over time which is why a lot of girls wear black or darker colored flip flops. I think they look good on girls (well the ones with nice feet lol).

  • Doesn't bother me if they do. Nothing wrong with being casual on a hot summer day. It's not like they're gonna wear them on their wedding day or anything

  • Because they have sweaty feet and want to get some air to them to stop them sweating and thus smelling vile...

  • How can you not like a girl in flip flops with shorts showing off their sexy legs or girls in bikinis at the pool with flip flops? I think it's sexy! :D

  • You should join my crusade against red leather boots instead, those are more annoying than flipflops. I have no problem with flipflops.

    • That's exactly what I mean.

    • red leather boots? those are fashion disasters !

  • Alot of what your saying here can be summed up with when you said: "But feet are nasty and they are sweaty and unclassy!"To me, it seems like you have a problem with feet in general first off...the opposite of a foot fetish. I guess a foot hatred, idk. Here in hot south Georgia everybody wears flip flops year round, guys and gals. And I actually like feet so I think they are sexy and cute. I like rubbing my girls feet when she gets off work and I happen to be at her house. And I have done that when they are sweaty/dirty etc. I just wash my hands when I'm done, no big deal. If I'm attracted to a girl and think she is beautiful, that means every part of her is beautiful to me. There is no such thing as an unsightly part of my girls body. Its all beautiful. And I will suck, lick, kiss, touch, any part of her from her head right down to her toes. Sorry if that's like nails on a chalkboard for you. Ha Ha.

    • ya I'm pretty sure you're my dream guy! hahah

  • because its sexy :) flip flops with a skirt uhhh I get a boner every time I look at a girl that dreeses like that :D

    • Hah who cares :) it's not that bad tho since it's not that big lol

    • That sounds painful. Especially if you go to college.

  • because it's sexy :)

  • Personally, for me, pretty, clean & manicured feet in flip-flops coupled with thin anklets are the sexiest sight on earth. Besides, feet in flip-flops are far less stinkier than those in full or partially closed shoes.

    • Thank you all. I am flattered to see 9 "likes" and I am excited that people who think like me exist. :)

  • why do girls like to wear makeup when they look great without it

    • oh thank god someone agrees with me, nice to meet you meson

    • Actually, they do, they just convince themselves that they don't because they grow up seeing irrealistic ideals of "perfection" that they can't keep up to as a standard, but in reality, they'd all be beautiful already even if they didn't put all that crap on their face. In fact, I am always bothered by eyeshadow and mascara. It is a turn off, it scares me, I find it unattractive, it's just plain bad.

    • Because some don't. :/

  • Cause guys are sweaty, stinky, and nasty. And the girls don't want to make us feel bad by looking SO much better than us..

  • Yeah flip flops are overdone these days. I agree with you and that most girls seem to be wearing some nasty ones as you said. Although I think they don't look all that bad, granted they have a decent looking pair.

  • FU dude, if you don't like women wearing flip flops, you shouldn't either. It's people like you who pollute beauty sex and romance with your odd theories. Forgive me but are you gay? Because as a guy, I have gay friends who say odd things like you do and I look at them a wonder about them and "their lifestyle" as well.If there is a chick in particular that is offending you, bring it to her attention, you will be doing her and yourself favor. Don't cry about it to the world because you 're just going to get negative answers feel even more low than your already are now.

  • Because it's about form follows function. You wear flip flops to a place where you plan on kicking off your shoes once you get there, like the pool or beach.

  • lmao keep feeding the troll girls he isn't interested in your opinions he just wants to crassly display his.

  • Dude. If feet bother you that much-don't look at them.

  • I agree.

  • They're comfortable... :\

  • they sell flip flops in other stores..not just white trash stores.

  • maybe they want to show off their painted toe nails?

  • first off. I'm a guy who likes to wear them. I find them comfortable so I wear them, regardless of how they look. I shouldn't care what you think of it and I simply dont. so don't insult me as a guy who wears themsecond off. girls who wear them do it for the exact same reason I do it. because theyre comfortable to them. regardless of what you think of them, so don't criticize what they wear, THEY WONT LIKE YOU. while I myself prefer women who wear heels. sandels and flip flops are just as good, I mean think about it, girls at the beach in bikinis wearing flip flops/sandels. it really can't get any better than that (other than heels heels with a bikini)

    • haha. yeah

    • Honestly, I died laughing at "other than heels with a bikini".. You got a thumbs up for that one, and your answer is dead on correct.

    • lol I like the fact that I haven't gotten a downie yet...and that I have a lot of uppies. sometimes, being brutally honest, goes a long way :)
