As I understand it Dr Scholl exercise sandals are good for the feet and legs and should be good for my calf muslces and toes, making them both stronger and more flexible. However having read this about flip flops and hammer toes I am concerned as I find my toes have much more work to do holding Scholls on than I do if I wear lightweight thonged flip flops, with the bit between the big and second toe.
A couple of other questions
1 - Is it ok to wear them all day like other sandals?
2 - How loose/tight should the strap be
3 - Since I've had them and been wearing them I seem to have developed a lot of hard skin on the soles of my feet, notably on my big toes and heel (where the sandal flips against the foot). on the heels I seem to have quite thick calluses now , and wonder if this is normal from wearing them.
Regardless of my questions I have found the Scholl's wooden exercise sandals to be the most comfortable footwear I have ever own.
