    Well i'm off to Disneyland in just over a month and people have been warning me that its going to be very hot and that i'll have to wear flip flops/sandal's or i'll die. I live in trainers and therefore the idea of wearing anything else makes me cry.

    So can anyone recommend me any flip flops that wont make me look like a prat?

    I did ok in trainers. For the amount of walking you will do they will be more comfortable, but I refuse to wear sandal/flip flops unless I am on a beach or next to a pool.

    Having size 14+ feet showing my finger like toes in public is a NO NO. :p

    I think you should definitely wear sandals. You should also wear a pair of bright white socks, that will really make you stand out in the croud.

    I wore my old shcool shoes (big black leather things) while I was in florida for two weeks. I refuse to wear sandles and I hate and despise flip flops. Stick with trainers and you should be fine ;)
    Have Fun!

    Sandals are alright, but flip flops are impossible to walk in.
