Running in Flip Flops is Dangerous!

Comments (2)

It's that time again...Summer! Kids are out of school and Texas is heating up to feel like we live on the face of the sun! Everyone is chucking their shoes in favor of sandals. I hope you have stopped by Healthy Steps and seen our wide arrray of supportive, yet cute, summer sandals.

This week is the first week of summer for most kids in North Texas, and we have already seen a number of children with toe injuries due to running in flip flops! Forget about the fact that flip flops have no support, they can be down right dangerous! Children are running around and stub their toes causing lacerations, bad contusions and even broken toes. I've already seen one great toenail half ripped off and I'm sure I will see more before the end of the summer.

So, Mom's beware! Tell your kids to stop running in flip flops unless they want to visit the office. And if your child does have a flip flop incident, bring them in right away. Small cuts and nail issues can become bad infections that keep them out of summer fun quickly!

 

Warning DO NOT try this at Home!
