Would You Wear Fancy Flip Flops to the Office?

My friend has a beautiful flip flop collection that she often wears to work. She feels that when the sandals are not made of rubber, they look appropriate enough for work. Keep in mind that this all depends on what kind of company you're working for.

Can you get away with wearing schmancy flip flops to work or do you think it's a big professional no-no?

I am allowed :) As long as we don't look sleezy or like bums it is ok! Jeans 5 days a week (although I only limit myself to 2 lol)

We're not allowed to wear flipflops at work, so probably not.

yep. in the summer i wear cute (i.e., not rubber) flip flops (or as studio16 would say, sandals :) ), and moccasins in the winter. they come off right away, and i walk around barefoot. (don't worry, nobody cares)

I wear them all the time. Even non-fancy ones. Our department is probably the least corporate out of any other department.

Unless I'm going to court or meeting with a client, I wear to work what I believe will be comfortable, put together and appropriate -- even if it doesn't always fit the dress code. So yes, I do wear "fancy" sandals to work.

First of all, I'm not a member of the work force yet, so I can't say. When I do start working, it will really depend on the office dress code. Second of all, I differentiate between sandals and flip flops. Flip flops are foam or rubber and have a v-shaped strap that goes across the toes. Sandals might have the v-shaped strap, but they are usually of nicer material and a little prettier. Flip Flops? Old Navy. Sandals? Jack Rogers.

My workplace requires that shoes have a manufactured back strap... so no flip flops or anything that does not have a strap to hold the shoe on your foot. We also have a "nothing that would be seen in a gym" policy.

I think there may be a no opened-toe shoe policy, so no.

Normally I wear heels to work... however, at 35 weeks pregnant (5 to go!) I've been wearing flip flops to work and shoving my fat little feet into heels when I need to go into court. Generally I don't think flip flops are ever appropriate for work, unless you are a lifeguard.

I am a receptionist and I am the first person people see when they come into our office. Wearing flip flops, no matter how fancy they are is a big no no.

I could wear those to my job (and often wear flip flops there when it is warm enough) but I wouldn't because I don't like "fancy" ones. I think they are ugly.
