Hello all! I will be posting my experiences with Correct Toes here. I took the plunge and bought some from the awesome brick-and-mortar store Good for the Soles http://goodforthesoles.com/
in Northampton MA, where I also have some Stems on order (they should be arriving in October.) You can also purchase them from http://nwfootankle.com/home/toes
. You'll note that they are NOT cheap- but I found the appeal irresistible. Hopefully my review will be helpful to others considering making this purchase.
I started wearing them regularly on September 4, 2011. I began wearing them at night mainly because at this point I am still wearing huaraches most of the time and I found it uncomfortable to put the string and the Correct Toes between my big and second toe. I find that if I wear them to bed, they seem to fall out (or be kicked out) at some point during the night. If I wear them with loose socks over them though, they stay on (I am what they call an "active sleeper.") They cause no discomfort when wearing them to sleep.
During the day, I have worn them around the house barefoot for an hour or two each day- they stay on fine this way. With shoes, I have found that I am able to wear them comfortable in my Soft Star Ramblers without socks. They are too big to wear in my Vivobarefoot Venus and Odette shoes. I look forward to trying them in the Stems. Since today (9/20/11) is rather cold and rainy where I am, I am wearing the Correct Toes in my Ramblers.
