That depends on what you do for a living. Do you run a tiki bar on the beach? Are you a lifeguard? Do you work from home? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then by all means wear your flip-flops to work.
For the rest of us who have office jobs or employment that requires face time with colleagues, clients, or the public, flip-flops are not appropriate — no matter how casual the environment. They undermine your authority and suggest that your work ethic is as relaxed as your footwear.
If you want to keep your feet comfy, there’s plenty of other relaxed footwear to choose from that doesn’t involve going almost barefoot.
