Dr. Scholl's Exercise Sandals

SpringcurlSpringcurl Posts: 8,002Registered Users
Now that my body's started rebelling against... well, itself, I can no longer wear heels. I'm wee (5'1, 5'2 if I stretch it). Anyway, it's disappointing, but since it actually hurts I have no choice but to stop.

I happen to love the Dr. Scholl's wooden sandal. I've picked them up in pink and black and I want to get white, too.

What do you think about them for you?

    Hey! I had two more options that didn't come out:

    [ ] Wooden Shoes? Too Danish!

    [ ] Too '70s. I'd never wear them.

    I love them. I've lived in them on and off since I was in junior high. I need a new pair - I used to get a new pair every summer but the last few summers other sandals have been wooing me away so this pair has lasted me about 5 years!

    Remember back in the day when you could pick them up at the drug store?

    Ha! I totally rocked a pair of navy blue ones when I was a kid.

    Yep! :lol:

    And my dad ALWAYS said, "I could make you a pair of those! Why do you have to pay $15.50 for them?" :D

    I love the look of them, very retro.

    I was never allowed to have a pair of them. To this day, my mom still bends shoes before trying them on, to make sure they're flexible.
    Keep an open mind and an open heart. Don't take life too seriously - it doesn't last forever, you know. And may I remind you for the last time, keep your crayons sharp, keep your sticky tape untangled and always put the top back on your markers.

    When I was 12 I was so jealous of my cousin Aimee. She was skinny and blonde and modeled. BUT, she wasn't allowed to have Dr. Scholl's and I was. How I loved that!

    I could never wear wooden shoes. I need better shock absorption for my lousy knees. It doesn't look like that shoe has much of an arch support either. I have flat feet too. I sound like my mother now. Getting old bites.

    oddly enough, i think the line is super cute...but i find the wooden part uncomfy and the plastic-y texture of the strap irritating.

    Exactly! I had a pair when I was young, but they never *did* anything for me. Maybe *that's* why I have knee problems now?! :shock: Hard and flat doesn't work for me. I have very high arches.

    I remember breaking in a new pair (more like breaking in my feet) every spring.

    YES! I remember buying them in the drugstore. Takes me back to my college days . . . . 8)

    I bought a pair a few years ago and they tore up my feet.

    I love them, I have a pair of red ones I break out when the weather warms up. I think it comes from my mother not letting me wear them when I was a kid. :cry: 'You'll break your ankle!'
    I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.

    I love Dr. Scholl's! Those pink ones are adorable! I just bought this pair two weeks ago. I have no idea how much support they have.

    When I wore them as a teenager,I thought they were very comfy-tried them again now and they are torture!

    Ha! I swear we had the same mom.

    I have black ones that I love love love.

    There's a short breaking in period but they are otherwise comfy!

    The strap on mine isn't plastic. It is more like leather. And it stretches. I really think they are comfortable.
