Flip flops that dig into my feet

on May 25, 2009 @ 11:58 am

I have this pair of flip flops that I like but the straps dig into the
top of my feet and it hurts like no tomorrow. I've tried various things
to help but none have worked.

I've tried filing down the straps of the sandals to make them smoother and that didn't work.

I bought those little rubbery things that stick onto the straps so the
rubber ends up rubbing against your skin stead of the sandal material.
This helped it a little bit but it doesn't stick on, even if I crazy
glue it on, and it only delays the pain as opposed to getting rid of it.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

I have personally tried them and they are SUPER comfortable. Other people have rated them and had varying experiences....

I have several kinds of flip flops including Havaianas, but my faves are still the $3 wonders from Joe Fresh. They are really soft and don't hurt my feet the way others do.

I would avoid thongs with fabric or hard rubber as those will cut your feet the most. Leather is softer and easier to get away with, or a rubber thong that is softer.

Sometimes you have no choice but to break them in and deal with some short term pain. I prefer to buy things I know won't require any breaking in.

MissChickie is right...Joe Fresh flip flops are awesome as well! Fabric, hard plastic or hard rubber flip flops always require a break in period which I prefer to avoid!

flipflops hurt on Jul 19, 2009 @ 07:54 am

i cant wear most flipflops for the same reason. i have sensitive feet i guess. the onse that hurt the least (only after a lot of waking) are from walgreens and old navy. i do try bandaids on my feet where they are likely to rub and cut but its not so cute and the bandaids usually fall off from the flipflop anyway.
