Oops

The culture war continues: according to Fox, flip-flops are out.
At least one manly man even took a philosophical stance against the humble sandal.

"I think the cheap ones are non-manly — they are [lacking in] power," said Mark Wright, a business-school student in Cambridge, Mass. "They are physically weak (unlike, say, a boot); they're cheap, suggesting the wearer is poor (unlike, say, a nice Italian shoe); in addition they make no statement and have no character."

And to think, I wore flip flops only two weekends ago!!! I long for the days of 2003-2004 when flip flops were an acceptable fashion trend :(
