AS SOON AS the temperature is consistently over 50 degrees, I pull out the Havaianas. The happiest year of my feet’s life was when I lived in Brazil. I literally wore no other shoe. The V-toe tan was incredible.
But constant flip-flop wearage inevitably leads to Hobbit feet. Thick, callused heels, dirty toenails…the dirt isn’t just on your feet, it’s in your feet, almost as if it’s under your skin.
