I laughed so hard when I saw Betty wearing these toe shoes.
And then she gave me my own pair. And I love them.
In the beginning, it's really hard - or at least it was for me - to get each toe into its own toe slot. I kept cramming two into one and leaving others empty. You think it'll be like gloves, and you'll just put a toe into a toe slot - until you realize you're a lot more dexterous with your fingers than your tootsies.
Which then made me realize that people with no arms who have to do stuff like drive or paint or write with their feet must really really have to work to develop that dexterity.
Which then of course made me think how screwed I would be if I lost my arms in an accident. Which briefly got me all kinds of worked up. Not fatal like the rabies, but still.
And thank goodness they realized thalidomide was not the way to go for pregnant women.
But back to the feet.
If you can get past how ridiculous they look, and the slightly odd sensation of having your toes spread out, these are fantastic.
My big toe and second toe have a big gap, which I kind of hate, and I've spent years cramming my feet into shoes that squeeze my toes together. Plus I love the pretty high shoes, which do nothing to give you toe space.
These are supposed to strenghten your foot and toe muscles and improve your body alignment and basically change your life.
I'm working up to wearing them outside the house.
