I've long been a fan of ToeSox, a company that offers footwear and handwear for people who practice yoga, Pilates and dance. So when I discovered that the company had come out with a line of flip-flops (which I'm also a fan of), I jumped at the chance to try out a pair.
These aren't your typical flip-flops. These sandals have not ONE toe thong but FOUR on each foot. This means there is a small bit of webbing between each of your toes. If you have had toes cramped in heels over the years, and they could use some gentle separating, these would be your sandals.
You know how the first few times you wear flip flops each spring your feet have to get used to the feel of the thong between your toes? Well it's like that with ToeSox Five Toe Sandals, too. In fact, the sandals come with a card that says, "Give 'em a week for happy feet" -- which is great advice.
Don't plan on taking them on a long walk your first time out. Plan to break them in with short bursts of walking. After about 5 days, I felt like my feet owned the ToeSox.
The card that comes with the sandals lists these benefits:
- exercise for your feet
- spread your toes
- strengthen feet
- increase circulation
- foot posts naturally align toes and feet for proper bone alignment to help correct a variety of foot, back and leg ailments.
My toes and I give ToeSox Five Toe Sandals an enthusiastic thumbs up.
