Speaking for myself, I do not regard flip-flop as a shoe. One flip-flop is not one shoe for me. I'm curious what's the others' view on the subject?

Yes same here I don't like flip flops and I don't really class them as a shoe for me it has to have a heel of at least 2 inches. Talking about a heel I did see a woman on TV, she had some shoes on with the heel coming from the sole so where the heel would come down, there was a gap at first I wasn't keen but the longer I looked the more I liked them.

Yeah, they might as well be barefoot if they're wearing flip flops. Not as exciting to see them come off. And I very rarely see girls wear nylons with them. So, no, I'm not a fan of flip flops either.

I not only am no big fan of flip flops, I'm not really all that particualrly interested in ANY sort of slip on flat sandal. Even some of the not so flat sandals rank rather low on my list, I'm not really all that fond of geta's or zori since they also are simply slip on sandals to me (I'm a little better on zori when they are worn with tabi (japanese socks) since those looke more shoe-ish to me, but worn barefoot they don't really count.
Oh and just to widen the list, I don't consider bedroom/house slippers as shoes either.

I totally agree with you.

Tengu geta are a special case. In general I just think they look stupid (for those not up on thier Japanese folklore, Tengu geta differ from regular geta in the arragement of the raised platforms on the bottom. While the normal type usually have 2 (one roughly under the toe box and one around the back of the ankle) the kind tengu (a mlythological creature that either looks like a person with a bright red face and a foot long nose, or a crow headed human) wear usually only have 1 right in the middle of the sole (or even a round piece of bamboo). It's meant to show how otherworldly tengu are (they can wear shoes that it would be impossible for a normal human to walk in) As I said I usually find them a bit too odd to be really interesting (plus folklore tengu are pretty much excusively male, and very old male at that). However I do find a little interest in those anime characters who wear ordinary shoes with tengu soles. Though to my knowledge there is basically only one character in anime land who does this, Shamemaru Aya in the Tohou series (there are two other tengu there, but the male wolf one usually wears flat sandals, and the other female usually wears more tradtional sandals). Actually if you go trolling around Danbooru (where all things Tohou are huge) you'll find a fairly large number of single shoe pictures of Aya. Some are damage type (lost while fighting) or erotic type (kicked off while doing something indecent) and the invariable "kiss my foot" pictures. But quite a few have no real obvios reason for the removal, at least until you realized what the artist has intended; they show Aya having taken one of her shoes off becuse there is no way for her to put her foot in the positions a normal one would go in in some cases (say sitting on the floor) while it is on; the platforms make it impossible to put her foot in those positions.

I have to say that i'm just getting sick and tired of the whole flip-flop fab that seams to have hit ever girl around this time of year.

Cause it seams that once the weather gets warm enough every girl just puts away every pair of shoes she owns and just pretty much go barefoot with nothing on her feet but a pair of damn flip flop's.

In my mind a 'shoe' like that should only be allowed at the beach/pool or at a Japanese shrine but not anywhere like a store or park of sorts.

Yeah, I hate this trend as much as I hated the sneaker/sweat sock trend back in the eighties. I always enjoyed my business trips to Montreal then. The women up there, in addition to being just plain gorgeous, ALWAYS wore their heels to and from work.

Well it's fricking flipflop season again here in the springs And I have to say thats it's gotten worst as i have seen men wearing the blasted stupid things. I will never understand how this damn tread started and I hope it dies soon as I won't even put my characters into the stupid things unless they are on the beach. As one thing I will never do is put my characters in those sorry excuse's for shoes.

Now read the thread from the beginning and answer the question: "who the heck is forcing you to make your characters wear flip-flops?"
Also, this thread is against flip-flops.

I know that and i'm sorry but it's just so F$%*ing annoying how many people in RL are wearing flip flops instead of a nice part of normal shoes like flats, sneakers, pumps and heels.

I'd have left only pumps and heels in you list. Flats and especially sneakers are subzero.
