Filipinas and Sandals


Reboot

Recommended Posts

Climb to the top of a high rock...cross a river on slippery rocks...snorkel and dive to the bottom of a reef...all while wearing a flimsy little pair of flip flops.

Is there anything they can't do in the things?

If you ask construction workers walking on scaffolding, with nails all over, mixing cement, etc-well--they're a lot more comfortable than steel toe'd shoes that's for sure (I guess it's about their priorities in what they buy from day to day).

I started walking a lot more, 2 months ago... I walk 3-6 Km a day.  Been walking in my slippers.  I decided that shoes would probably be better for my feet so I dusted of my Nikes (from the US, not local knock offs).  Tried 2 walks and my feet were killing me!  How do you people wear shoes?

Maybe I have been here too long ha ha  :tiphat:

You're turning Filipino and you like it!LOL

Steve--I'd bet they'd be really hot to wear, like the security guard shoes you see many workers wear. I guess it has to do with costs and affordability too. As long as you can get an anti-tetanus shot when you need it.-
