Birkenstock Noppies

Posted by Ken T. on 11/29/01 at 12:06 (065626)

I just got a pair of Birkensock Noppy Sandals. They feel quite intense when you wear them. The store staff recommended wearing them with socks and for only short periods. I wore them barefoot intermittently the first evening and was amazed at how much better my heel felt the next morning. Typically I had quite severe morning heel pain before the Noppies. I have tried most of the recommended conservative treatments: physio, ibuporfen, ice, taping, custom orthotics, stretching. They all seemed to help a little but nothing was very effective. The Noppies and taping have given the most immediate and real relief.

I have no fincancial or other connections to Birkenstocks.
