Calling it straight
I am not sure if these have really worked for me. I tried to use them and put one on my problem toe but the base did not fit well in my shoe and I gave up. It is summer now and I am mostly wearing sandals. If I try again this fall and have luck I will amend this critique.
Not As Annoying As You’d Think
I don’t have hammertoes, but I have an affliction I remember the doctor calling “weak plate…something” and “loose something toe”. Anywho, he recommended that I purchase one of these to force my index toe down, and relive the strain on my “…plate”. I’ll tell you, after you get it on (which is not rocket science), and cram your foot into a shoe, you hardly remember it’s there. Ladies, if you try to wear this with a pair of heels, you will regret it. I wear a 7.5 shoe, and this thing rubbed right into the ball of my foot all day. Go with the doctor’s orders and wear it with flats. A few months of wear, and I feel like I’ll be back in foot-crippling heels in no time!
I purchased three different products to help adjust a hammer toe, and none of them were great. This one works better than the other two, but you can’t wear it with any shoe that has a strap between your toes (like flip flops). Still searching for a good product.
I can walk/hike longer now
I’ve got messed up feet and toes, and I can’t walk or hike more than 3 miles without a lot of pain and discomfort. With special shoe inserts combined with the toe straightener though, I can easily add a couple of miles and walk in relative comfort. Yay!
Brilliant design but platform not built stiff enough to work – a simple modification however fixes it completely.
Of all the toe-straightening devices this one is the superior design. It can be worn inside a shoe and it can be 100% effective in straightening a FLEXIBLE hammer toe when slightly modified. The problem is with the flat platform part — it’s way too soft. When you tighten the loop enough to straighten the toe, after walking around for a short time, the platform material will pucker and rise beneath the toe, allowing the toe to bend and completely negating the straightening effect. I cut a piece of semi-soft plastic from the side of a 64 oz bottle of drinking water — not the crystal clear bottle but the more flexible translucent type — and, using the toe straightener as a template, cut it to match the platform of the toe straightener. Then, using the plastic as a template, I cut a piece of self-adhesive moleskin to match and applied it to the plastic. Finally, using a box cutter (or any razor cutter or Exacto knife) I cut a small rectangle angle out of the moleskin/plastic platform just large enough for the toe loop to fit through. Now, placing the platform I made between the foot and the toe straightener, and pulling the loop through the rectangular hole, I have the perfectly functional toe straightener. Pedifix is a good company; let’s hope they discover this defect and start producing these with a stiffer platform, "ready to use"
I was impressed that this held my toe down better than anything. My pinky and the one next to it toes are curled up. So in my flat shoes or dress shoes, I ALWAYS get blisters on those toes because they are hitting the shoes constantly. This (although only holds one toe, so I had to choose) Helped me a lot in this arena!I don’t know if these would ever permanently keep your toe down (I think only surgery can really do that :(…) but these are definitely worth a try!Don’t tighten it too tight! Adjust it to where it pulls the toe flat but still isn’t too tight.
Works fairly good for me
I found this pedifix for hammer toes to work adequately. However, I will try other types to see what works best for me. Didn’t exactly fit the way I thought it would.
Not for My foot
These may work well for you but my foot doctor told me they were not for my feet. Check with you doctor first before you buy. The product was well made and looks like it will hold up well. These may be perfect for your toes.
