The Bank of America Chicago Marathon confirmed today that Jordan Hasay will return to the course to compete with the elite field this fall.
Another reason to pack up your flip-flops for the season? A study in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association tested plantar pressure—which can lead to the painful plantar fasciitis—for women wearing athletic shoes, flip-flops and in bare feet.
The flip-flops were only slightly better at protecting feet from plantar pressure than going shoeless, and substantially less protective than athletic shoes. So save the flip-flops for your beach vacation, not all-day wear.
