Flip-flops take some heat, but Spenco says: Make it a flip-flop summer with Spenco

From health magazines to mainstream media, the flip-flop, a treasured summer tradition, lately has come under fire. Spenco Medical Corporation, a leader in footwear and foot care products, is speaking out in favor of the toe-freeing style, but reminds consumers that not all flip-flops are created equally.

Spenco’s line of ultra-supportive shoes, slippers and sandals include an extensive selection of flip-flops for both men and women. “Of course, cheap flip-flops you buy at a drug store are not likely to offer foot support and stability, but that doesn’t mean all flip-flops are bad,” said Ray Anthony, FCPodS, DPodM, podiatrist and Spenco Medical Corporation consultant.

“Spenco’s flip-flops and slides are a great example of summer footwear with orthotic-grade arch support and a strong, stable sole.”Properly fitting footwear can improve overall body alignment, which often helps to reduce musculoskeletal pain, Anthony said.   Like all Spenco® Footwear, the Total Support® Footbed found in its flip-flops provides a high level of arch support, foot stability and comfort. Other features include:

  • A compression-molded Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) footbed, considered eco-friendly
  • Deep heel cupping
  • Metatarsal dome
  • Cushioned forefoot
  • Lightweight, two-part outsole
  • Non-slip, non-marking outsole
  • Ultra-Fresh® Antimicrobial for bacteria and odor control

According to Anthony, the bottom line is that well-made, orthotic-grade flip-flops can be a healthy choice for your feet. A position, he says, he’s not likely to flip-flop on any time soon.

Spenco’s flip-flops retail for $49.99 – $79.99 and are available at sporting goods stores and on the Spenco websiteSpenco Medical Corporation a leading producer of high quality insoles and foot care products, helps people everywhere achieve its motto of Love Your Feet®.
