The real benefits from walking barefoot will surely be lost by sticking a plastic shield on the bottom of the foot. But then again for someone with a foot problem what ever can be better for both soul and sole than a barefoot wander along a beach and a paddle.

Read on: they are not reusable once you use & pull off they have to be thrown away! :hitting_wall

Yes Biggdad I did think when I read it that there was yet some MORE plastic waste! After a couple of nights in hospital and seeing their waste firsthand I'm now even more determined to buy stuff with less packaging for a start and recycle to the max. I'll stop now before I blow a fuse and need a paddle to calm me down..... :icon-mrgreen:

The Gripperz Circulation non slip socks made of cotton with their grippy dots along the entire sole of the foot ,a cushioned sole ,should be able to be washed.Gripperz,would make good bed socks, bringing peace of mind when walking to the toilet half asleep during the night!
They come in three styles-anklets, circulation & maxi hospital socks that could be worn over bandages.
My only problem is where they could be bought locally ?

I'm wondering whether I should make this a sticky topic...

Yeah Perry... but don't make it too sticky 'cos lynny wears her socks to the beach and the sand would stick.

Are they worse than thongs/flip-flops?

I believe in the barefoot benefits to sole and soul especially in the thereputic paddle in the briny.
Nothing else like it. :icon_biggrin:
