HUNDREDS of pairs of flip-flops line the three walls - and one tree - at the new Flip Flop Shops in the Plaza at King of Prussia Mall. The 650-square-foot boutique opened in early April across from JCPenney. The store sells flip-flops with rhinestones. It sells flip-flops with hemp straps and flip-flops with 3-inch wedge heels. It sells sparkly flip-flops, recycled flip-flops, neon, leopard-print, rainbow, floral, metallic and plenty of plain flops, especially for men. There are covered-top flip-flops.

IS BARACK OBAMA a Manchurian candidate after all? The minute that Obama became the Dems' presumptive nominee, he traded his cloak of liberal-oriented change for the same thing that he saw John McCain wearing around town, a stylish pair of flip-flops. Last week, he exhibited some convoluted back-tracking on campaign finance, but Friday's flip-flop on the U.S. Constitution - and the right of the government and corporations to spy on you - is a less inside baseball, and a lot more serious.

Sharon Furgason first wore flip-flops as a kid in Ohio, where "all I did was go to the lake or to the library," she recalls. Now 66 and the director of Pitman's McCowan Memorial Library, Furgason still loves beaches, books - and flip-flops. So much so that she has put selections from her 98-pair collection of the festive seasonal footwear on exhibit at McCowan this summer. "People get a smile out of it," Furgason beams as she unlocks a display case that holds a rainbow array of flip-flops.

MALE readers: Boycott the movie "Gracie. " It's nothing but female propaganda. If the girls who play on boys teams think they're so important, make them play in flip-flops, wedges or high heels. Tim Short, Bryn Mawr

COLUMNIST JENICE M. Armstrong is so incredibly wrong in justifying the Northwestern women's lacrosse team wearing flip-flops at a photo op with the president that it isn't funny. It's all about image, and the image that picture portrayed was lowbrow to the extreme. It was like those women came from a trailer park instead of a college campus to have that picture taken. And that nonsense about auctioning those shoes sounds like spin to me. Who in their right mind would willingly buy used flip-flops, regardless of whatever charity they were connected to?

"AT THE END of summer, I always get a whole crop of patients," said Manhattan-based foot doc Jackie Sutera, speaking on behalf of the American Podiatric Medical Association. Wearing flip-flops can lead to "tendonitis, arch pain, plantar fasciitis . . . stress fractures, hammertoe formation . . . and skin fissures. " Such conditions occur, explained Temple University podiatrist Josh Moore, because "[d]uring the rest of the year, we're wearing shoes that give us a little support, but with flip-flops, you're walking on a flat surface, which causes the muscles to work differently.

We all know how the burning, muggy infernos that are Philadelphia summers can tempt us into making questionable style choices for the office: bare legs, cleavage-baring tops, flip-flops, and probably the biggest offense of all - wearing shorts in the cubicle. So this week, as the temperatures climb to the 80s and low 90s, humidity in tow, we should pay special attention to our workplace attire. It can be the difference between spending the rest of the day in company-paid air-conditioning or trudging back home in the heat to try your luck again.

When the 27th season of MTV's The Real World begins, the first thing you notice about Brandon Swift (or simply Swift, as everyone calls him) is that he's wearing a black leather coat. On a dock on the Caribbean island of St Thomas. In his defense, it was cold when he got on a plane in New Jersey to fly down to the Virgin Islands to meet his fellow cast members/hostages. Still, most people would have taken off the coat as soon as the tropical air walloped them. Not Swift.

Jahira stood beneath a blazing sun on Broadway in Camden recently, talking openly about her evolution from dealer to doper and how she won't negotiate when selling her body for sex. The 25-year-old Philadelphia native wore her tattoos like a suit of armor, the gang symbols, rosary beads and various names each adding another layer of toughness to protect her in this tough city. But one word changed her demeanor as it made a painful journey from memory to mouth. Her nervous smile faded, her eyes rimmed with tears, and she took a deep breath as it rested on her lips.

WITH a mixture of hope and fear, Broad Street Billy walked into Chickie's and Pete's on Packer Avenue near the sports complex, took a deep breath of the beer-marinated air, and felt that the joint was electric with high hopes. And when Brad Lidge got the final strikeout of the Phils' 4-2 win over the Giants in Game 5 of the NLCS last night, the jam-packed bar exploded into a red sea of dancing, screaming, heartfelt joy. "I've got no more voice," said Joe Weber of Merion Station, "but I just want to say, players with heart never give up. Anyone who questioned the heart of this team never played ball.

At a recent party, two friends and I got to talking about how our marathon training was going: miles, schedules, why we picked what races. I had run 16 miles that morning and was sitting down with my feet propped on a lawn chair. One of my friends, who was hydrating for his 20-mile run the next day, said that he was having some heel pain and wondered whether or not his running shoes were causing a problem. When I looked down at his feet, I saw that he was standing and wearing flip flops.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The monotony of spring training can become monotonous. So rather than recount a Grapefruit League game or provide some insight on a major league roster hopeful, the Daily News pinned down the $125 million man for a chat. Ryan Howard, off to a roaring start this spring after missing half of last year recovering from left Achilles' surgery, answers the most pressing topics, lighthearted and serious.   Daily News: Who in this room would win in a cage match?

The NBA-worst Washington Wizards fired coach Flip Saunders on Tuesday after a 2-15 start and replaced him with assistant Randy Wittman. The Wizards fell to 0-7 on the road with an embarrassing 20-point loss to the 76ers on Monday. "I felt like at this time, our players were not responding, and we needed a different voice," team president Ernie Grunfeld said. He and Wittman spoke about playing a faster-paced, running game on offense and perhaps using more press tactics on defense.

Sometimes the biggest stories garner the least attention. And so it has come to pass that, while most political junkies have been tracking Herman Cain's amateur hour, the president of the United States has been busy below the radar, signaling his pugilistic reelection strategy. Once the Cain sex-harassment scandal took hold, nobody seemed interested in Obama's preemptive attempt to paint his likeliest '12 rival, Mitt Romney, as a serial flip-flopper with a spine of jelly. It's the same kind of character attack that George W. Bush unleashed on John Kerry in 2004.

The eyes simply couldn't ignore Ameet Shah's toes. They were just so unexpected in the all-business, nothing-out-of-place office of Anthony DiFabio, chief executive officer of Robins' Nest Inc., a Glassboro nonprofit organization that helps troubled children and their families in South Jersey. And they were so obvious. Shah was wearing flip-flops - odd attire for a company executive such as himself, and yet his year-round footwear choice unless a client objects. DiFabio wasn't objecting - he was too busy raving about the services Robins' Nest is getting from Conigent, the Haddonfield-based technology-consulting company Shah formed in 2007.

Rapper Nelly may have turned the following lines into a hip-hop classic: "It's gettin' hot in here, so take off all your clothes. " But in these dog days of summer, I implore you: Please don't. As the saying goes, leave something to the imagination. Last month's daily temperatures were, on average, five degrees higher than normal, making July Philly's hottest ever. Maybe that's why we're getting overloaded with the sight of exposed flesh, especially with short-shorts revealing deep dimples and strapless tops killing us with cleavage.
