Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

First, define flip-flops. Sandals made of leather are shoes. Flip-flops in my definition have foam rubber or plastic soles and a thong between the toes.

Wouldn't be caught dead in flip flops or Crocs. And my style of dress is somewhere between white trash and homeless. I still wouldn't wear either.

I registered an emphatic "in the trash", but I don't have any issue with the aesthetics of flip-flops. I just find the things incredibly uncomfortable, while comfort is supposedly one of their main selling points. I can't understand how anyone can stand having them on their feet more than a few minutes.

What's wrong with the flop? I don't understand all the hatred toward a footwear choice!

This is by far the closest poll I've ever seen. Wow.

I live in the Northwest... flip flop headquarters if you ask me. I've seen folks here wear them to weddings. That's disrespectful in my opinion. (unless its that kind of wedding) Keep the floppy floppies at the house or beach.

I'm tired of the ladies in my office wearing glorified flippity floppities at work. "Oh look, it has a cheap plastic flower glued to it, it must be a dress shoe!" Us dudes have to wear nice shoes, so should you.

Don't Panic.

I live in Houston ... it's either flip flops or cowboy boots. Both are the glass slippers of Texas. Wondering what state has the highest sales of Yellow Box "flip flops"????

They are nice to wear at the beach. Keeps you from stepping on glass,etc.

In the trash. Besides the fact I cant stand to hear the sound of them, as a supervisor I see my employees come in all the time in them and all I can think is what kind of injuries they can potentially get wearing them while on the clock. I finally had to speak with one employee because he felt so comfortable with them on, he decided he could slip them off while at the desk. Problem is, he would forget to put them back on when he would get up.
