Flip Flops, a.k.a Satan's Slippers

Written by Mr. Alex Horne

FLIP FLOPS, aka SATAN’s SLIPPERS, can be bad news for your back.

It’s no coincidence that balmy weather brings them out; flip flops are the official footwear of the Netherworld.

Curling your toes to pick up your thongs will activate the calf complex, shut off extra ankle movement and prevent efficient walking.

This either shortens your step length, or recruits that movement in other places, namely, over extension in your lower back.

I’m not saying avoid summer shoes, but why do you think Jesus had straps!
