Here in Phoenix, it's hot enough that most people wear minimal clothing four-five months out of the year (or more if they can get away with it). Flip-flops and sandals are extremely common. Until recently, I wore them daily throughout the Summer months (read: April to September) too. Then it occurred to me that wearing flip-flops is a step in the wrong direction, as far as Toolset is concerned. Running in them is a joke. When I do need to run, and I find myself wearing flip-flops, I kick them aside and run barefoot. Potentially terrible situation. What about if I were in a fight? Not only are my bare feet exposed, wearing these traps on my feet is a stumble or trip waiting to happen - even without another person trying to throw you off-balance. I decided that I won't be wearing flip-flops from now on unless I'm at the beach. If I'm going to all the trouble of changing my wardrobe to accommodate more effective concealed-carry, working to be more aware of my surroundings (Mindset), and investing in MMA classes (Skillset), why should I intentionally hinder myself in my Toolset? What are your thoughts on this?
