    Here Comes The Summer

    It is already starting to get very hot down south. I like foot retention. I also like flip flops. Can these two be brought together to make the summer heat more tolerable?

    i don't wear flip flops outside of my house. I'd also be scared to match those with pedals, seeing how if something stupid happens your feet will get messed up.

    I also thought about the possibilities of foot mangling. I was really only thinking about the commute, which is short and I change shoes at either end anyway.

    Seriously. Flip-flops are a nuisance. Just ride barefoot.

    I used to try barefoot on my old track pedals

    The wings for the cleats would dig into my feet):

    Just get some shoes, And drill holes in the sole :|

    No socks and ripped up Vans are the closest thing to flip flops for the summer when I ride

    That's why he carries a 15mm wrench wherever he goes.

    I run CB Mallets, mainly to wear flip flops around town in the summer. But I also run a front brake.

    Barefoot with flipflops in my bag, and kitchen shoes at work was another option I thought of. I would just need to make sure the trackstand skills are perfect, as putting your bare feet down on parts of my route could end with tourist vomit between your toes.
