I've had some sports injuries involving my feet, so I'd like to give them better care.
When I look for alternatives to flip flops and slides, the results are "structured" flip flops and slides. Structured means they have arch support and related features built into the foot bed. The structured flip flops are from Vionic. The slides are from Birkenstock.
I took a look at some Birkenstock slides/sandals and they all have a Raised Toe Bar. The literature reads:
Obvious question here: How does the toe gripping in a structured slide/flip flop differ from the toe gripping in a regular slide or flip flop? More to the point, does the toe bar and other structure of a Birk totally correct the issues that make regular flip flops and slides bad for the feet?The raised toe bar encourages the natural gripping motion of your feet.
