Initially spooked by the look of the shoe. I imagined myself falling "overboard" forward, my poor big toe with the broken bone breaking off my foot, my forehead lacerated and bleeding. Read the instructions, no driving, walk slower, use extreme caution going up stairs or stepping up on a curb. Of course I had to be as careful with any other open sandal so I gave it a go. Took 2 minutes with the shoe on and I felt immediately comfortable and safe. The pain decreased ..
This shoe got me walking while my toes were still healing. The shoe was true to size but I would have ordered a larger size to protect my toes from bumping things. I wear a 7 1/2 - 8 shoe. I would suggest ordering the medium or the next size larger. My toes were at the end of the shoe and I would have rather had a bit of shoe at the end. I did not send the shoe back for a larger size and I will use it again when I have my next foot surgery.
