How you treat your feet is just as important as what you choose to put on them. You want to keep toes, heels and bunions in check, because nothing will make us run faster than the disturbing site of overgrown toenails or gnarly foot fungus. For footwear, anything in the flip-flop, thong, or sandal category would seem most practical, however, with so many options to choose from, footwear faux pas are far and wide. Always a no-go on the beach or otherwise: the socks-and-sandals combo. Likewise, sneakers, loafers, aqua socks, smoking slippers and anything with laces should automatically be barred. Now, for every rule, there is an exception, and in this case it's boat shoes. Also known as topsiders, these classics are an excellent overall summer shoe. Wear them, and I’ll be impressed enough to message a photo to my work wives.
