I bought these as stocking fillers (no pun intended) and also slipped a pair into the order for myself. These are amazing. They create separation whilst supporting the toes and, although they take a little while to get used to, they really have made a difference. My feet feel more connected to me and I have realised that my feet at times are almost numb. This has made me consider my treatment of my feet more and take better care of them. Those who received them love them also and I gifted a pair to a friend who had recently had a knee operation and is unable to walk. She said they were great for creating subtle movement. Really good purchase.
