Safety flip flops are the way to go.
'tit gear' is gear that makes you look a tit. You don't wear those rubber perforated turd things do you?

I don't know about other heath boards but they are banned throughout mine for infection control purposes and anti static precautions around anaesthetic gases. The nurses aren't allowed to wear them.
Plus they look stoopid

I must admitt that Crocs aren't the best designer shoes to wear, but must be pretty comfortable.

These Sharx look to be a cross between crocs and trainers. These don't look too bad. Clicky

yes i wear them , they are the best ever for water shoes , and I have tried them all over the years , working teaching kayaking etc all week .not just for a days pottering at the weekend .
They dry faster than anything else which helps prevent your feet getting sore ,
give a bit of protection to you toes over the rocks
easily kicked off if you are swimming
they float
they don't make your feet sweat or stink .
They are the cheapest

havin spent a fiver and with no footrot Iam happy to look stoopid

Only downside is they are not the best grip on a slimy slip , but what is ?

Its fair to say that crocs are not high fashion, and I only wear them in the summer when the last thing you want to be lumping around in are sodding wellies. Besides I don't think Durbarry shamrocks would match my thong.
