    As someone who wears sandals on 90% of my day hikes, I am sympathetic but also feel you have to make allowances and exceptions. I suspect many folks in national parks are not experienced outdoor folks.

    If it's easy terrain and I'm not carrying something heavy, I'm happy to wear Chacos and plop my feet in the creek.

    Not just Utah. You do not want to be at the bottom of the Grand Canyon or miles up in the Sierras with blisters from bad shoes. Some people should not be allowed in the back country.

    I have seen people asking strangers for water because they didn’t bring enough of their own.

    Oh, caveat, wearing sandals into desert backcountry would be supremely stupid.

    Now don't project your feet onto mine. I have cute feet. They are not completely sandal-ready, yet, but I am working on them. And I haven't broken out the flops, yet, either.

    I wear shoes maybe 30 days a year.

    That has been me this last year. Mainly because I haven't gone any where. I was asked yesterday if I was wearing new shoes. They were a year and a half old, but seldom worn.

    99% of the time I'm wearing flip flops, there is no human contact. Plus, for safety I don't wear them when doing yardwork.

    I absolutely chew through shoes with my walking/exercise regimen. I wear only Adidas, because that's what Duke wore in the 80s when I first became a fan. Now obviously Duke switched, but I never did. Although we did wear Converse Weapons in high school. The team all wore the same white with silver and blue Converse. And REAAAAAAAAAAALLY short shorts...although I do have the legs for that.

    Best accompaniment to a bagel when cream cheese is not a choice?

    I would say hummus and veggies, but you're probably talking breakfast, so I would now say plain.

    I should qualify that one is a blueberry and the other cinnamon sugar.

    I was thinking maybe creamy wait no, crunchy peanut butter.

    How does one “work on them?” Is there like a six-pack abs equivalent for a foot? Are special exercises needed?

    I am assuming this is genetic. I have genetically ugly feet.
