You can wear it on either side(left/right).

If that is not possible due to your foot shape, wear it in a position where you can grasp it with your little finger (fifth toe).
It is more important to hold your little finger than your thumb. You don't have to hold firmly. It is enough to touch the edge lightly.
Please use the heel firmly attached to the floor without floating.
Despite those who are usually used to high heels, the position where your Achilles tendon is stretched will be in a position where it can be stretched carefully.
If you use it with the heel floating, it may damage your Achilles tendon.

Walk as you gently place your entire foot under the body.
Currently, most people have floating fingers (it means where they are not touching the ground).
