Say it isn’t so! You are not a hobbit, and neither do you walk around on your thumbs. So what the heck is the rationale behind the $3.99 Sandals For Your Thumbs? The simple and direct answer would be this – none, none at all! I suppose that is why the Sandals For Your Thumbs has made it to our hallowed pages, where these sandals offer some semblance of safety for your thumbs, as they are made of a durable, thick rubber and is touted to withstand all nature has to offer. I wonder whether these are considered to be legal “wrestling apparel” when you get into a thumb wrestling fight with your kids. Surely they would call you a cheat with the additional grip it comes with!
