WASHINGTON – The uniform of the summer most always includes flip-flops.
But when wearing the standard foot wear, there are some rules to follow.
AskMen.com has compiled a list of things that men should be doing to prepare for showing their feet in the light of day.
- Clip and scrub your feet since they will be on display to total strangers.
- Find flip-flops that fit properly. There is nothing more annoying than the slap-slap of a pair of oversized flip-flops. The rule when it comes to sizing: They should extend just past your heel.
- Flip-flops should really be replaced every summer. Cheap pairs can really break down with repeated wear and sun exposure.
- Extend the life of a pair of flip-flops by cleaning them with a damp cloth after each use.
