Oh, 'chanclas' (aka flip-flops). As a Puerto Rican, 'chanclas' are solely for the beach. As a Latinx, 'chanclas' are also the #1 tool used by mothers and grandmothers alike for intimidation. But if it isn't in those contexts — or to reference this one of the most iconic vines in history) — you will never find me wearing or even considering flip-flops for my day-to-day outfits. For some unknown reason, they have become my footwear nemesis. And this is despite me coming to terms with the overall ugly shoe trend.
