When walking you need your sandals to handle that repetitive heel-to-toe rolling motion. After all, even a sedentary person takes up to 3,000 steps per day, and a moderately active person up to 7,500. So make sure your flip flops are comfortable and supportive - a poor fit can lead to injury. And choose ones that are secure across the instep and in the heel.
You can take steps to reduce any walking-related problems. If you overpronate, you can wear sandals that have deep heel cups and arch support to maximize comfort while walking & prevent excessive foot rolling.
