Will you choose an expensive flip flop or not?

I like flip flops. However, I usually wear them at home. I rarely wear them for going out or parties. So, I often choose cheap flip flop. I buy many pairs every time I go shopping. I think that they're cute and convenient. But It's not too fashion in order that I must spend a large amount to get them. How about you?

I don't really wear much flip flops. I did, one time wear flip flops while I was on vacation, and it hurt my feet, so I just use the ffs at home.

Oh, but to answer your question, no I don't think I'll spend much on flip flops since I don't use them outside the house anyway.

Right. Flip-flop is not suitable for outside the house much. But I often wear them when I walk to supermarket or street.

I can no longer wear flip flops. If I could I would probably buy a cheap pair, and a medium priced pair. There are some really cute ones that don't cost a lot. I don't spend a lot on shoes, because I am hard on them and they never last really long,no matter how much I spend.

Flip flop is really comfortable for you wearing at home or in picnic etc... Do you want to try?

I used to wear them all of the time and loved them, but now I have a problem walking and I can't keep them on my feet. They call it dropped foot or something like that, but what happens is I don't lift my feet up high and sometimes my toes turn under and I am walking on them.

i dont normally wear flip flops, but if i will buy one.. i dont think it has to be expensive. besdies flip flop is just a slipper i'd rather buy shoes as some flip flops price are same with shoes (sneakers, rubber shoes) right now i love my sanuk shoes ^_^

I'm too. I often spend much money for shoes to go to office of parties. I only buy flip flop to wear at home or picnics. So, I often choose cheap ones in order that I can buy many.

A pleasant day to you tkonlinevn, I dont really buy expensive flip flop. What I am after is the comfortability of my feet. Hence, there are some flip flop which is not too expensive and yet my feet are very comfortable to use it. For me, as long as my feet feels alright, I really dont look as to it price and brand.

Price and brand is not important to you. But if a flip flop is too expensive, you will think whether to buy. Right?

I live in South Florida so I wear flip flops pretty much year round. Usually, I'll get the cheap $5 ones from Old Navy since they have every single color and I wear them all the time. But if I see a nice pair of sandals (not the kind from Old Navy), I'll sometimes be willing to spend a little more to have the nice sandals for going out and stuff.

Most of my friends like buying expensive flip flops. I'm not really into expensive ones. As long as the flip flop is comfortable and I find it very cute, I will buy it. I really don't waste my money on slippers.

I am not particular with an expensive or branded flipflops what is important to me is the comfort that a flip flops gave me. I rather choose something that is comfortable to wear and of course not that expensive :)

I agree with you that the comfort is the most important when we choose flip flop

I love wearing flip flops, I have tried purchasing both cheaper and expensive ones and I should say that its better to purchase expensive ones that will really last for years than purchasing cheaper ones that doesn't last for a month.

I do have a variety of them and some were expensive while others were not. More so depending on how I am going to use them as sometimes I will wear them daily. I prefer the cheaper ones because each year I like to buy new ones, so best not to spend too much if we wear through them to quickly.

I'm discovering this year that there is a difference between a middle of the road flip flop and a cheap one. Hubby bragged about getting his at the dollar store and you an feel every rock every step you take

I like flip flops but can't really walk in them. my legs start hurting and at the end of the day, it leaves bruises in my feet. So i try to avoid it as much as possible. but i do have a pair of flip flop in my shoe rack just in case. and no mine isn't so expensive. it's an average priced flip flop.
