Flipflops and simiilar open shoes (or high heels) aren't wise from a safety viewpoint. There was a plane crash (and fire IIRC) where the investigators determined that a bunch of female SQ FAs would have lived if they had been wearing footwear other than the little slippers that go with their uniforms. Ever since then, they are required to wear sturdy closed black shoes for takeoff and landing.
