    I've had them in the past and was so happy to find them online.
    Just Me
    Not only is the wood not well shaped anymore but the leather upper on any of the design sandals is thin fabric and thus flimsy.

    I had my first pair of Dr. Scholls as a teeanger 30 years ago, and loved them.

    I recently ordered the "Original Dr. Scholl's Exercise Sandals." They came today, and I plan to return them for a very important reason: The toe ridge, or the toe grip, is absolutely nothing like the "original" Dr. Scholl exercise sandal. I knew as soon as I saw the new shoes when they came today that the ridge was not the same as the "original." I compared the new shoes side-by-side with a pair I've had. The difference in the toe ridge in the new shoes is significant. It is almost flat. The toe grip is the best feature of the Dr. Scholl's exercise sandal, and is Dr. Scholl's big selling point. I think the description of the toe grip in their ads for the "original" exercise sandal is misleading, because it just isn't what it used to be. I am disappointed in the shoes for this reason, and will return them. I started wearing Dr.Scholl's Exercise Sandals in the late 60s and I've been a fan ever since, until today.

    If your back hurts while standing, you may want to try these sandals.

    As a young mother of three, I found that WHENEVER I wore these sandals my chronic backache improved greatly, but they disappeared off the shelves and I was unable to buy them for decades. Now, as a GRANDmother of three, my back has been causing more pain than ever. I was so happy to find the sandals right here at good old Amazon! I've been standing for hours, and my back hurts much less now. They're wonderful. (I gave them only 4 stars because of the rough leather used in the lining of the strap. See below.)

    NOTE: They do require a break-in period, so be prepared to wear them for short periods at first.

    FOR THOSE WHO FIND THE SANDALS RUB: First of all, if they hurt, TAKE THEM OFF. Don't wait till you get blisters. For some reason, the inner lining of the straps is made of sueded leather--not too soft. (They were always made this way; I used to sandpaper them.) This doesn't bother everyone, but if it's bothering you, try lining them with DURAPORE SURGICAL TAPE (in the 2-inch size; available through your pharmacist). Just stick it on and cut the tape around the strap to fit. As you cut, you may see a little edge of tape sticking out from the strap; just press it up against the edge of the leather; the tape will stay on better. You can also try MOLESKIN (in the foot-care aisle of your supermarket), it really makes them feel great, but doesn't stick as well as the tape.

    IF YOU FIND YOURSELF BETWEEN SIZES (one hole is too tight, the next too loose): Try using the smaller hole, but wear them with socks until the leather stretches. Start with one sock and if they're still too small, you can wear more than one sock.

    For all of you ladies wanting to adjust the straps on your beautiful Dr Scholls to make them fit tighter... First take the left shoe and face it forward. Bend the wide leather BENEATH the buckle (i.e. pinching the top and bottom part tightly together). Now pull/slide the buckle to the left. & VOILA! Pretty smooth right?! There is no need to bend or break the buckle! Do the same with the right shoe except this time you must slide the buckle out to the right... That's it! Enjoy your shoes ladies! I sure do! Love'em! Love'em! Love'em!

    The name of these is very misleading; these are not at all the *Original* exercise sandals. I've worn Dr, Scholl's sandals for 35 years and far as I can tell, the only "original" element in these is materials -- wood and leather.

    1. As many others have noted, the toe ridge has almost disappeared so you don't have anything to grip. As someone with ankle stability issues, I can't wear shoes that slip around when I walk. That was never a problem in the past but this "updated" (aka cheaper to make) design doesn't provide the support I need. I found that I was scuffling more and sure enough, the front of the shoes showed wear where I had previously never had a problem.

    2. Something is really wrong with the buckle design. It's not only hard to adjust, but I think there is one less hole so I wasn't able to get as snug a fit as I used to have (I wear a B width so it isn't as though I have narrow feet).

    3. The leather is not as good quality as my old ones. It's stiffer and when combined with the looser fit (1 & 2), I ended up with marks on my feet just below the big toe.

    Looking at the reviews here and elsewhere, I see that repeat customers have been complaining about the redesign for quite some time now. I guess the company figures it's more profitable to churn through new buyers rather than keep a loyal following. They are trading on the reputation of the actual original to lure unsuspecting buyers. It's another case of a reliable old standard abandoned.

    I use to own DR. Scholl's exercise sandals back in 1982 and at the time they use to be 19.99. I wore the sandals every day and gradually got my calf in better shape, no hip or back problems. I eventually worn them out by 1986 and had a hard time finding them since then, until I searched Amazon.com and found them again and the price is still reasonable. I love the navy and the white colors. I put mine in my wish list for my birthday or mothers' day.

    here is how you measure. put you foot ( if even doesn't matter wich foot, if uneven use the loner foot to determine your size). take a 11x12 paper and make two marks one at the heel and one at the big toe then look at the chart put your finger on the inches (foot measurement) and run across to see your size. remember these sandals only run in whole sizes, so if your half go up one. also know your width

    Women:

    Size Inches CM

    4 8 ¼ 21

    4 ½ 8 ½ 21.6

    5 8 5/8 21.9

    5 ½ 8 ¾ 22.2

    6 9 22.9

    6 ½ 9 1/8 23.2

    7 9 ¼ 23.5

    7 ½ 9 ½ 24.1

    8 9 5/8 24.4

    8 ½ 9 ¾ 24.8

    9 10 25.4

    9 ½ 10 1/8 25.7

    10 10 ¼ 26

    10½ 10 ½ 26.7

    11 10 5/8 27

    12 11 27.9

    13 11 ¼ 28.6

    I hope this helps you to determine your size. I wear 8 1/2 in shoes, I measured my foot and it is 10 inches. I ran my finger across the chart and found my size, so, the sandals I need a 9 in Dr. scholls.

    remember each manufacture is diffrent in their sizes, so , measure up. ;)
