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!

  • 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

  • Yey, a guy that's being honest about what girls shouldn't wear. I love it! I agree those things should only be worn when your going to the beach. Not to work , going to the mall or everyday wear. It doesn't matter how hot it is, or how many colors you have them in. I especially hate it when girls/women wear them to work. Shit, why not just wear your DAMN slippers, ugh.

    • Finally a girl that agrees with me! Girls deny that they get all nasty and sweaty looking like the ones above, but I've seen so many girls walk around with nasty flip flops like that (see above picture).

    • Oh nice, since we have a girl here actually listening to what guys think about what girls wear, here's a big one: Baggy, gangster-looking clothes. What makes a woman a woman is her curves (at least to us men), even the thick ladies have curves but I see so many women wearing all this nasty baggy clothing, they look like dudes! Granted, I'm loving the skinny jeans fad, that is spot on! I remember a girl I liked who was beautiful... she came to class with a backwards cap and sweats... bleh

  • Ok, so you don't like flip flops, and you seem to be disgusted by feet in general. No big deal. Most women do wear flip flops and some can be very stylish, some are beach flip flops nothing more.

    So, here is my solution. The next girl you date, make sure she doesn't have any feet. That will solve all your problems! NO FEET, NO FLIP FLOPS! No sweaty, stinky bleh! No problems!


  • I feel that my flip flops are often far cleaner than my shoes. Sure, there might be a little dirt in there, but since when did a little dirt on one's feet kill someone?

    In contrast, feet trapped in shoes smell more than flip flop ones. This is because all the sweat/dirt/etc gets trapped and builds up in there. They smell. They take more work to keep from smelling badly. Flip flips may get dirt prints, but they don't smell like shoes, there's probably dirt prints in many shoes out there too, you just don't see them. Most flip flops only last a season, so they don't get the years of build up.

    All I need to do to clean my flip flops off is walk through a mostly water puddle. Or a hose. Or a lake or river. Or rains.

    BAM! clean feet and flip flops. Do any of this in shoes and your feet are worse of than before.

    Also, flip flops will never wear the skin off of the backs of my heals or toes.

    There are less socks to put through the laundry at the end of the day.

    Any fancy polish work to my toes gets to be shown off.

    They're easy to throw on and off, into a bag, carry around etc.

    They're cheap, and easy to match to anything casual.

    In short: they're versitle, comfy, affordable, and probs cleaner than shoes.

    Despite what you seem to think.

    Whatever, haters gonna hate.

    Or you've got a fear of feet.

    Or maybe you should look up from the ground once in a while.

    Or if you really just don't want to see feet, I'd really like to see some people walk around with bags over their heads 'cause I don't wanna see that either. But you ain't gonna see me complaining about it.

  • who has feet like that? I take care of mine when I do wear flipflops. Don't be all like people that wear flipflops are white trash that pisses me off when people say that. Living in florida its sometimes too godly hot to wear shoes

    • then don't look at feet gosh that settles your problem

    • It's hard not to when girls are always sliding their sweaty feet in and out. Quit wearing the stupid things.

    • who takes them off in public that is gross. I hate feet to the most extreme but seriously don't look at them.

  • Why would flip-flops be any sweatier than normal shoes? Wouldn't they be LESS sweatier, if anything, considering they're completely exposed to air surrounding them? O:

    But yeah, in my experience, I see more men wearing flip-flops than girls, so it's not just us who are guilty!

    • I never see guys wearing flip flops. It's mostly a girl thing...

    • In Vegas, guys and girls wear flip flops about equally.

      See, thing is, Q A is apposed to logic. He refuses to confront this simple, but very relevant point,

  • I prefer flip-flops over regular shoes in the summertime simply because they are light-weight, easy to just slip on and run to wherever I need to go, and airy. Why would I want to wear a full sneaker when its extremely hot outside?!

    However, I have noticed some girls wearing completely dirty flip-flops but not ALL are like this. I always keep mine cleaned off...i've also never had an issue with them smelling..ever. 0_o

    • i like your picture,i have that one as well xD

    • Show All
    • Actually I have smelled one before that was just laying outside a chicks room. The thong area smelled like feet...

    • So I assume she didn't take the time to ever clean them? I don't see flip flops being a "bad thing" as long as you keep them clean like should be.

  • I don't sweat in meh flip-flops. They are comfortable, I wear them on the summertime and on the beach mostly but other than that not really

    Oh and if you see how many men wear flip-flops in California.. :x

    • You probably say you don't... I don't know how many girls walk around with sweat stains on their light colored flip flops and sweaty looking feet. BTW california must suck.

    • Seriously I doubt your getting a girlfriend o you worry about the shoes she wears. Ever heard of BODY SPRAY? SHOWERING? hmm.

    • Yah it grosses me out when men in california wear them exspecially by the beach man. Its gross.

  • You've obviously never worn flip flops if you think they're sweaty. They're really quite the contrary. If you think a girl wearing flip flops is white trash, good luck finding a girl. God, I'm actually laughing because you're updates are just so f***ing dumb...No wonder you used anonymous.

  • 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. :P

    To 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...

  • Why do guys wear skinny jeans?

    Why do mothers of little girls dress them up in short little skirts so you can see their diapers?

    Why do people in general like gold?

    ...yeah...it's just personal preferences.

    And I do agree that people should keep their stuff clean and coordinated.

    I only wear flip flops when I'm going to the beach, but I don't condemn those who choose to wear them casually.

  • 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.

  • 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. :)

  • 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..

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 them

    second 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)

    • This question and your answer remind me of the whole sweatpants in public thing. Some guys think they're cute, while others like yourself don't. The QA doesn't like flip flops, but you do. Personally, I wear sweatpants to the library all the time, but I don't like flip flops. We all have our thing.

      On an unrelated note, is your picture denoting you as a coke head?

    • 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.

    • haha. yeah

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

  • 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?

  • 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.
