Can’t wait to slip those tootsies into flip flops or clogs?

We’ve often heard that flip flops aren’t too good for your feet, but a small study done at Rush University in Chicago has found that soft, spongy flip flops are better for your knees than clogs.

Researchers found that supportive, stable clogs and stability shoes, which are often worn by people who work on their feet all day, put a 15 per cent greater load on the knees than flat, flexible athletic street shoes and flip flops.

A high load on the knee joint can lead to osteoarthritis, they say.
