Only youngsters should wear flip-flops after a night out

COMMENT: All agencies must to held to account for Anne Savidge’s tragic death

Have your say

I’d love to know the average age of those women taking flip-flops from the street pastors in Gosport.

Sadly, walking barefoot along a high street after one too many gin and tonics is a bit of a rite of passage for us girls.

You go out wearing heels because they make your legs look longer. But even the most advanced heel wearer walks like Bambi on ice when she’s had a few.

So the painful shoes come off and we totter along, dodging debris.

That’s not so bad when you’re a student, or in your 20s.

If you’re in your 30s and find yourself looking for a handy street pastor to come to your aid, it’s probably time to think about the direction your life is going in. Or at least admit it’s time for flats.
