I wasn't sure about buying these. I knew I needed socks that had the grips on the bottom since there is no carpet in my house. But, I really wasn't sure about the toe part, which each toe having its own "slot". There is a lot of talk about how amazing it is and good for your feet to be able to keep your toes seperated some times to help alleviate pressure and things like that. I figured I would give them a try and I'm so glad I did. My feet feel so much better after wearing them for only about 20 minutes. I had no idea that seperating my toes would make my feet feel so much better.
