Is there any product out there that you can attach to the part of the flip flop that goes between your toes for pain relief? I just bought these really nice flip flop sandals and only wore them for an hour and they already hurt. I don't want to return them, so any home made remedies for this issue or is there an invention that clips on I can buy?

What about using some of that Dr. Scholl's moleskin? I don't wear flip flops...

I have found that certain flip flops just hurt something awful I bought these totally cute ones for Aruba and within two minutes I could hardly walk I had to switch back to my $3 Walmart ones

I never heard of it but I just checked it out on their web site and maybe that will work, thanks. I never use to wear flip flops because I can't stand anything between my toes and didn't like the look but then I moved close to the beach and I ended up with several pairs.

I never used to wear flip flops either, but I go on a wine tasting trip every year with the girls, and they always get these cute tank tops and stone them with either the name of a wine or some grapes or something in Swarovski crystals. This year they also got flip flops from Old Navy and stoned those with the crystals too. We all wore our tanks and our flip flops, and I'm STILL wearing those flip flops! They are the most comfy things I've ever worn!

That's funny because of all the flip flops I've bought the cheapest ones were from Old Navy but they are also the most comfortable.

they may not be utterly glamorous but Tiva flip flops are so darn comfy!

Never wore them when I was kid because they always hurt between my toes. Now that's all I wear and don't have a problem with any of them hurting. My feet hurt when I have to wear "regular" shoes

Maybe wrap something around the strap part while your inside to break them in and to see if they still hurt. If they still hurt.........send them back

Sometimes it takes wearing them a little to break them in, depending on what they are made of.

I HIGHLY recommend Chaco leather flips. They are pricey but have fabulous arch support, last for years, and the leather toe thing gets nicely broken in so you don't even feel it. Any flip with a leather toe separator-thing will be more able to get broken in and comfortable.
