I quit wearing them at 6 years old after a stumped toe. I’ve seen them cause car wrecks and broken bones. Just say no to crap footwear. The question isn’t whether one can wear them to work, it’s whether or not one should wear them to work. The answer is no. Only if you own the Purple Mermaid shells slim fit shirt company and your product is flip-flops! Or you are working from home and you don’t need to wear pants all day. I love flip flops. They are cheap and comfy, and they are just basically the best. But to be fair, even in Australia, flip flops are a big no-no at most jobs. Anyone who wears any sort.
