Reflexology Flip Flops
The Kenkoh design is based on the science of

foot is ‘viewed as the second heart’, Kenkoh says. The design uses 1,000 natural rubber nodules to shape the insole while massaging the sole of the foot with each step. The arch in the middle of the sandal supports flat feet and replaces the need for orthotics.
