GQ writer Glenn O'Brien has this week spoken out against men in flip flops stating, "Flip-flops are for the beach or maybe for washing the car or spaniel. They are not the next big thing. They are the last sad thing on the road to stylistic surrender."
Although he is actually referring to men in flip flops I can't help but wonder what impact this has on the shoe for women. For me, it's a Summer staple mainly due to it's comfort even though I know fashion isn't about comfort (if it was we'd all wear slippers to work). I like the annoying noise it makes (unless you're trying to run down the stairs) and that it's name is an onomatopoeia but O'Brien's harsh words have made me rethink. Do you love the flip flop?
