The short answer is Yes! The long answer is that not all flip flops are not equal, and if you choose a cheap, flimsy flip flop then you will have the problems that come along with it.  Read Dr. Arain's article on the dangers of flimsy flip flops on our website. Choose a supportive one with a deep heel cup, a supportive arch, and a comfortable footbed.  The straps should be thicker and of a comfortable, breathable material, not thin and nonsupportive. Our office recommends Spenco recovery sandals. Spencos come in mens and womens sizes, in all different colors, so you can find a pair that is just right for you!
