fitflops - slightly bizarre problem

I'm on my third pait of fitflops (identical styles) and have a frankly weird problem with this last pair: namely that when I wear them I frequently get an electric-shock type sensation to my big toe on the one foot, and my second toe on the other foot. I know it's unlikely, but has anyone else experienced anything remotely like this? Or should I just hand myself over to medical science now?

Have NO medical credentials at all, other than that gleaned through watching House and ER, but it sounds as if some nerves in your feet are being compressed when you wear Fit Flops. I prescribe trying a different style.

I sometimes get a tingly/numb feeling in my little toes when I wear my (new) FF boots (worn-in pairs no problem). I also suspect it's a pinched nerve type issue. But the benefits to my posture, back, etc aren't enough to make me sacrifice them!
