I'm looking at pictures of sandals and scrunching up my toes at all the pictures with a toe post. The space between my big toe and my..........less big toe(?) would feel violated if I put a pair of flip flops on.

Yup. Whenever i've tried on toe-post sandals I kind of shudder and my big toe involuntarily lifts up. I just think i'd end up with horrible blisters between my toes.

Lumpy, like you I live in flip flops, and only dont wear them when raining too !! try and string it out and been know to wear them in November !! When my daughter attended nursery we were all know as the flip flop family smile Wearing them at work as i type !! smile

It's not that I'm worried they'd be sore and cause blisters it just gives me a weird feeling in my stomach. Like imagining someone sticking their finger in your bellybutton.

Actually yes. I feel your squeam.

I HAVE FOUND MY PEOPLE!! I hate them. Agree with you squoosh, total toe gap violation! Bleurrgh!

I do envy people though- so much choice!

The thought of a toe post and high heels sends me waaaay over the edge.

Nope wear them all day every day from April to October (I'm not in the U.K.)

Totally agree, the thought of it goes RIGHT through me, Urgh!!!!!! Shudder.

I wear the Birkenstock strap style without toe thongs. Sorry for saying toe thongs.

Costacoffeeplease Thu 12-May-16 17:04:35

Often wear them in winter too

They make me shudder

LizardBreath a toe-post combined with a high heel is absolutely beyond the pale.

Nope don't like them one bit. Don't really want my kids wearing them as would like them in something more supportive but have given in for the beach.

Mainly don't like the toe post. Have tried strappy sandles but with a toe post and can't do those either. But also prefer sandals that stay on and don't flop around on anybody bit just me!!

Yes!! I'm exactly the same!

I had bone removed from under my big toe when I was 18, and if I put my foot down funny, it feels just like when you knock your funny bone!!!

I can't stand them either. How can anyone run in them? I get really annoyed when I see children (girls) wearing them to school.

I hate toe post sandals with a vengeance = instant blisters 😡

Tuiles Thu 12-May-16 19:01:05

These are just utterly wrong in every way!!

Tuiles Thu 12-May-16 19:22:29

OMG shock

Sleepingonthebus Thu 12-May-16 19:25:00

I hate anything between my toes. I hate feet too. Disgusting things wink

Tuiles Thu 12-May-16 19:25:13

Now I'm stuck Googling weird flip flops and the world is all wrong sad
