Today, while hiking and wearing sandals, I stubbed my toe. This wouldn't have been so bad had it not been into a cactus with 3 inch thorns. FML

Sandals + hiking = no. And now you have learned.

YDI for going hiking in sandals. They have hiking boots for a reason.

That is why you should always rock the socks-n-sandals look :)

I've never known a sock to stop a thorn. If anything it helps hold the sharp object in place for maximum pain.

Hiking boots aren't just for looks...

Well I just saw sandals while hiking and automatically thought... "YOU DESERVE IT"

Well.. That must have put a thorn in your ego.

#60 - Cool story, tell it again.

if the op can only wear sandals then they shouldn't be hiking. I can't stand regular shoes either but you don't see me running around in the snow with a parka and flip flops.

"hiking.....with sandals." Really... YDI

There is this thing called a brain. Yea, it's used to make smart decisions. Apparently OP and #60 don't know how to use it. 60 - if shoes bother you, then you need to try more types of shoes, maybe a different size.

I mean it really depends on where and how intense of a hike it is. There are plenty of sandals made for light hiking like chacos or keens. Considering OP was hiking in an area with cacti that have 3inch thorns, they definitely deserved this for wearing sandals.

No biggie, take it like a man!

what if one of the thorns stabbed under his toenail

Don't understand how you thought those could mix OP

Maybe he was wearing his special hiking sandals

The Tarahumara people of Mexico can run 70-90 in just under a day, only wearing sandals or barefoot.

You deserve it.. Not for the pain but as a reminder to think before u do stuff mean.. Hiking with sandals.. It shows u're not thinking about important stuff like what u are up against

7 We could have done without your buzzkill comment.

Ouch isn't really a word, it's just something kids say so... You're wrong. :P

1. Ouch is totally a word. 2. You're 16, you can't say "kid". 3. I felt I needed a 3rd point.

^ So true, I'm 16 also & still consider myself a kid. ;b

If ouch wasn't a word, then there wouldn't be a way to spell it. So ouch is a word.

Hiking without hiking boots is like playing football without any gear. It's just stupid. YDI.

At least it's just a stubbed toe. U could have stubbed your toe, trip n fell with the added bonus of 3inch thorns in ur abdomen.

I read to the comma and clicked ydi. Hiking and sandals don't mix.

I used to live in Arizona.. And when we went hiking, opened toed shoes were NOT an option.. YDI and FYL cause I know from my childhood experiences, that HURTS
