can I wear flip flops on a plane?

Ok ladies, I know this is a silly question, but I haven't flown since the 90's and that was only once. I'm going to be traveling to Florida this weekend. I know that you now have to remove your shoes during the security check and they recommend wearing shoes that can be easily removed and slipped back on, but can I wear flip flops? I'd be willing to bet that they're not the safest thing to wear, but other than that I only have sneakers and I didnt really want to go that route.

  • Yes you can. I have before. Plus, flip flops will be very easy to slip on and off in security checks.

  • Yes you can wear flip flops or sandals. I have only flown a couple times, and that was 2 years ago - but I wore flip flops for convenience sake.

  • Of course you can wear flip-flops!! You can wear any kind of shoe you'd like. Flip-flops are probably the best thing to wear, in fact, because you are required to remove your shoes when you pass through security and flip-flops are just slip-off/slip-on. I don't understand why you would think that it's not ok to wear flip-flops?!
