I love these weird low toe socks; they keep my pedicured toes intact, don't show with my low sneaks, and there's enough gel pad on the heel to keep them in place. I really think the toe sock version helps keep them from sliding either direction, love them, wish I'd known about them before the others 8d bought from the store. Not gonna lie, without shoes, your feet look.....odd!
Product was comfortable even with a break ulcer, my daughter was able to put on sneakers.. Although the gel was in the heel only the separated toes assist with keeping the toes flat and not overlapping. Great product!
