1.0 out of 5 stars For Women? Not. Fine for Standing. Not Walking., December 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Birki's Super (Apparel)
A male chef friend recommended these, but when I tried them on, as at least one other said, they're fine for standing but not for walking. The description says these shoes fit both men and women, and a women's size 8. I'd ordered Birkis several times over the years, and a 39 both in this brand and other EU brands had fit just fine.

Usually I wear a US 8 1/2, but these were so big in the toe box, I couldn't keep them on, even with socks. When I contacted the seller, I got an e-mail saying I could return them at my cost, with insurance to Germany. That would, as you might imagine, from the US, almost negate the price of the shoe.

I contacted Amazon and their response was, "Contact the seller."

I don't generally order shoes online...lesson learned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should have bought this decades ago!!!!, December 29, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great, great device. Love that you don't need to plug it in...just squeeze the sides and it easily pops up. The reason I didn't do it when my PT for my back suggested it about a year ago, was 1)price and 2)my dh had designed a series of stacking wood platforms that worked pretty well, though it got increasingly harder to keep lifting my heavy iMac on and off the platforms. Not to mention the desktop reorganizing each time I'd take it on and off the platforms. The only thing for you to consider is how far back from the sccreen you want to be and if that keyboard extension is necessary. It can be removed by unscrewing if it isn't needed. Some reviews mention wobbling...yeah, maybe a little at the highest elevation. ;) But not nearly as much as my dh contraption did. I didn't want to hurt his feelings, but even he said when I got this operating, "Neat!" My back is SO grateful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended by Nurses. I See Why!, December 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My dh was hospitalized for a month and I did lots of pacing. ;) He's better now, but the nurses turned me on to Dickies. Love that you can use your own insert and it is just the most comfy clog I've ever had. I had bought many other brands from Amazon in the past to deal with standing as a chef all day for my cooking classes, and they were all too big in the back or the front, or both. These were made with a woman's foot in mind, I do believe.

2.0 out of 5 stars Developed Loud Screeching Noise at Start-up, December 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I liked this at first, and I rarely return electronics. I've owned it for 11 months and a couple of months ago, it started developing a noticeably louder fan or motor noise when I first turned it on. I have two of these, but the second, purchased later, is the same manufacturer and a different model. It doesn't do this. The noise is so loud that I expect that it will stop working shortly.

Amazon's return policy is 30 days, with more leeway for items purchased this time of year. So if you have issues, act sooner rather than later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, accurate book! Paranoid? Nope. My hubby was wrapped like a mummy from this very problem., August 13, 2014
This review is from: Killer Clothes (Paperback)
After years of being misdiagnosed with cancer, being on prednisone, and finally being sent to the Mayo Clinic and wrapped up like a mummy with steroid creams, my husband was diagnosed with severe contact dermatitis. His dermatologist had long been saying it was the clothes and textiles. We've spent thousands changing furniture, clothing and bedding, and it finally seems to be helping. We both read Killer Clothes cover to cover yesterday and were blown away how similar what was in the book was identical to what the dermatologist had told us...but with way more research and resources.

As a runner, I shudder to think what toxins have entered into open pores from all the moisture-wicking chemically treated clothing most runners today wear. Paranoia? If you saw the photo of my hubby wrapped like a mummy with only his eyes, nostrils and mouth visible, you would know this is a real, huge problem and will only be getting worse the more we disconnect from natural fibers.

His misery, which felt like death by itching, was so bad, that he was willing to do/try anything to get rid of it. After watching him suffer, I for one, know I will do everything I can to avoid being in his predicament. For him, it was most likely the cotton/polyester shirts he wore for years, and treating them in the wash to remove formaldehyde that didn't work, that was the main culprit.

Thanks, Dr. Clement for bringing this issue to the forefront!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stress no more. Eating vegan? Piece o' carrot cake!, July 20, 2014
Rebecca's website Yummy Plants has long been a go-to standard for delicious, helpful recipes. She thoughtfully posted tons of recipes from other authors. It was only a matter of time before she put it all together for her own book. As you would expect from her mouthwatering website, her book is equally easy and fun. If you've thought going vegan was complicated, stress no more.
