Your Dear Hard-Working Tootsies

Good morning, angels!

I have just ordered a little item called "Yoga Toes" from an outfit called YogaPro, and wondered if any of you have personal experience with their product:

http://www.yogapro.com/ts/toestretcher.html

I got them because I realized last summer that I have the beginnings of a BUNION on my right foot (what a horrid word! which is why you must prounounce it in the French manner, like "bun-yoh") and my massage therapist Eddie says my little toesies need to be in alignment more often. I asked him What does that mean, Eddie? What are you saying? I should be wearing ...
SENSIBLE SHOES or something?"

And he said all kinds of lovely and comforting things, because he knows and accepts me and he understands that SENSIBLE SHOES are just not in the stars for me at this time in my life. But he said that this bump on my right foot is telling me that I need to pull my toes into alignment and so I went and got these Yoga Toes. I'm looking forward to trying them, and will report back to you. Hot tip: If you want to order some yourself, you can use "ALR" as a coupon code and get $15 off!

Seriously, though, a good massage therapist is one of life's most beautiful blessings. Especially ones who sometimes send you out the door all calm and put-back-together and then absolutely refuse any money at all because, impossible as it is to believe, they just care about you and want to give you back some of the healing and energy that you're putting out. Talk about angels.

Just this morning, at breakfast, I was looking at my feet and realized my pre-bunion was getting bigger. (YUCK). So I quickly went on-line to order yoga toes. Alas, they do not ship to Canada!
Are Canadian ministerial students doomed to buniony feet?

I've fortunately never had a bunion problem but these are good to know about as my mom's been having foot pain, and I have several friends with the hammerfoot thing .... Good gift idea.

But how bad can a thing be that rhymes with "Funyion"?!

Thanks for sharing! Will see if they help my bunions!
Too bad the coupon code was expired. At regular price, they are a bit much.
Hope they work!

Thanks for the recommendation! My Yoga Toes just arrived, and I'm wearing them. They seem to be working as designed. I've got major hammertoes, alas, and while the Yoga Toes don't straighten them entirely, they straighten them quite a bit, and I'm told that exercising the bottoms of my feet by wearing the Yoga Toes and curling my toes down against them may over time straighten my feet out, or at least do it partially. A good purchase, I'd say, Many thanks for the tip!
