Windsurf, I have heard really good things about the Vibram "shoes". I would very much like to try them out for myself, as a podcast I listen to regularly did a great review of them (the Indie Travel podcast).

Thanks for the reminder about them and the benefits of going barefoot. I still remember the first weeks of hot weather when we'd toughen up our feet as kids on the hot sand in front of our (my oh-so-privileged childhood*) beachfront elementary school. We wouldn't wear shoes again until school started back in the fall and then only sandals until it was too cold!

*def sarcasm, but self-directed

Windsurf: Well, I'm checking out those shoes, so thanks!
I agree with Sarah's opinion about Haha. He definitely is not (normally--except in unusual circumstances) sarcastic or nasty towards others.

WHAT THE YOGATOES HAVE DONE FOR ME AFTER A WEEK+:

They slowly spread your toes--as well as the pad underneath the toes, which started spreading first allowing your feet to have more platform when you stand--but it helps alot when standing or walking.
Also, the intense pain on my little toe that would actually numb the left side of my foot when I first used the Yoga Toes has slowly died down. And I am actually getting more toe spread from that left foot with the broken toes.
These things are working for me more each day. I'm a believer at this point, so hope they work for Haha, too.

Orchidflower, has your little toe changed direction? My little toes point -in- toward the next toe and I have a little bump, like a bunion on my little toes. I'm wondering if the Yoga Toes would correct that. The rest of my toes are pretty straight and spaced well.

Happy2beretired: I don't have them, but the YT are supposed to correct bunions and hammertoes over time.
My toe has not changed direction, because, when I broke it, I taped it to the next toe and that puppy healed bone straight and inflexible. But, if I had a toe that bent toward the next toe, I would think the YT would work better than anything else. That's just my opinion from the results I've had.
One thing I did do before I purchased them is check all the reviews. Amazon.com is a good source to start with and YT website has reviews, too. There are quite a few of them, so you should be able to find others with a similar problem as yours.

Thanks Orchidflower...will check Amazon out. I have such a hard time finding sandles that look nice that are wide enough to fit that bump. The YTs might really help that.

I got the clearance silver colored ones for $25 on the YT website. Why pay $50 just for a different color?
