Why wear Yoga Sandals® footwear?
These sandals are the next level in flip-flop design. The four thongs ensure the sandal will not slide around on the foot or be accidentally kicked off with sudden movement, while the arch provides support for the foot and the slope provides in-step relief. With each toe gently separated, there is a natural alignment of the foot bones and muscles, aiding posture and balance. In yoga training, there is an emphasis on separating the toes in the standing postures to improve the sense of grounding and balance. These sandals re-train the toes to do just that, while exercising the foot muscles, thus improving alignment of the foot bones This results in reduced foot problems such as bunions, hammer toe, heel pain, and arthritis. Countless satisfied customers have reported Yoga Sandals® provide relief from leg, hip and spinal discomfort. All with the ease of having a sandal in and out of the house.
Can I use Yoga Sandals® footwear all year round?
Yes, definitely! In the spring and summer, the sandals gently spread your toes as you go about your errands in and out of the house. They provide a stable support for the foot unlike regular single thong flip-flops (just try to kick them off!). Yoga Sandals® give your toes much needed relief from closed toe, often narrow shoes. During the cooler months, depending on the temperature, toe socks work well so you can continue to wear them in and out of the house. The all-new Comfy style of Yoga Sandals® has been created so you can have a dedicated pair to use inside. Numerous customers comment that their feet feel warmer upon wearing the sandals. This is due to increased blood flow and energy flow in the feet.
How often should I wear my Yoga Sandals®?
Everyday! If you find your feet sore at first while wearing them, for up to 2 weeks, trying wearing them for just 10 minutes a day. Walk around in them to get your feet used to the enhanced mobility and flexibility. These sandals help to properly align the bones in your feet, correcting all those years of cramming. This will feel slightly strange and uncomfortable to begin with, but as the bones begin to re-train, the new, straight alignment will provide a host of benefits. Like anything new, it’s best to start slow and go from there.
