  • Nay. We’re not working at Sea World.

  • Nay. Call me conservative, but I don’t feel they’re appropriate for work. They make too much noise, can be a safety concern and people don’t always wear nice/clean ones. Besides, anyone that knows me knows I’m all about my heels!

  • I’m emphatically against flip flops in the workplace, unless your workplace happens to be the pool. That said, I’ll endorse any footwear that doesn’t imply that you’re on your way to the water flume.
