Question:

Hi, if I am living in a city with no Eruv, am I allowed to wear crocs on yom kippur that don’t have a strap at the back? And what about wearing thongs?

Thank you so much.

Answer:

It is a dispute amongst the achronim and poskim. Nowadays people don’t walk around barefoot so there is more reason to be lenient.
