Some people out here would wear Crocs, but the State of Colorado banned them last year. It was a state constitutional amendment and it passed by a huge margin.

Montrail Molokinis! They are the best! They are flip flops that you put into the oven and heat up, take out and step on to mold to your feet. These are the most amazing flip flops I've ever owned and they come in cute colors. I bought mine on Zappos, but they have them at Moosejaw (I love you Moosejaw). Check 'em out:

Anyway, it does stink. confused

I wear worn-out running shoes but whatever you do, get something that costs at least something instead of hurting your legs/knees wearing something really cheap.

I wear Sole brand flip flops. They have an anatomical footbed that molds itself to your foot shape. Most comfortable shoes ever! I have walked miles in them with no issues. YourSole.com

+1 I agree on that one. It's either that or old running shoes for me.

I wear my retired running shoes outside if just casual or socks/barefoot in house. Flip flops not my style unless at beach or pool and there I wear the leather type sandals. Never understood people wearing them to the mall or walking around outside. Seems way to close to the dirt!

I have been wearing Keens for years. They provide lots more support than flip-flops, can be worn in water, and even hiking. Zappos has a wide selection of colors and styles. I like the Newport model myself.

Those Tamarakian (spelling: whatever, who cares) Indians use used tire sandals so I think I'll strap on a pair of those. clown

I've been a Teva 'original' style wearer forever. Can't take the backpacker out of the runner.

I wear these every day. They are Merrell flip flops:

I've worn the same pair for two years now. Maybe I'll buy a new pair! They still look and feel great.

Barefoot is good and so are stilettos. Wink
