    The Dr. Scholl's sandals are cute, but I wore them for a summer a few years ago, and after a couple of months, I noticed the bottom of my big toe was numb all the time. The feeling came back when I switched to another pair of sandals. I find that shoes and sandals with a flexible sole are the kindest to my feet and legs.
