The problem with flip flops and flats is the lack of shock absorption that comes along with thin, unsupportive soles. As your foot slams into the ground again and again, your heel bones take the brunt of the impact, and that can lead to problems over time such as incredibly painful blisters that form on your Achilles tendon when the back of your flat rubs against your leg because of a lack of sole support.
These slippers offer plenty of arch support as well as shock absorption. The initial discomfort in wearing reflexology slippers subsides as your feet adapt to the supportive curvature of your feet.
These slippers do require getting used too. If the massaging acupressure sole is too prickly, wearing ankle socks does help elevate any discomfort until you get used to the massaging sensation and this could take up to 3 weeks.
Slippers can be worn for a few minutes or as much time possible for best results depending on your comfort level. At first, until you get accustomed to them, it is recommended that you wear them for short periods of time.
