Hammer Toes

Hammer toes, claw toes and mallet toes are the abnormal bending or twisting of any of the toes.  This abnormality is normally caused by wearing shoes that are too tight.  The tendons and muscles that hold the toes in place are weakened because tight shoes restrict movement and therefore cause them to shorten or contract.  In rare cases these toe problems are linked with other conditions, such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, stroke, or an injury to the foot or ankle.  You may notice the bending of your toes or develop some corns or callouses before you experience any pain.  But, after some time, you can experience pain, irritation, redness, and open sores.  These conditions require intervention or they will never get better.  The quickest way to relieve the symptoms is to immediately start wearing shoes with room in the toe box so the tendons and muscles can stretch and relax.  


Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear® are designed ergonomically with a wide and extra depth toe box.

Our toe box was built with a little extra width so that the toes and bones behind the toes have room to lay comfortably while walking or standing without being squished.   Nearly all people's feet get wider with age, so if you are wearing the same size shoes you wore in your youth, you are probably wearing a shoe that is too small.    Our feet become longer and wider with age, as the tendons and ligaments that connect the bones lose their elasticity. This causes the toes to spread out and the arch of the foot to flatten.    A person's feet will also widen with weight gain or pregnancy.   Our mantra here is to fit the shoe to the foot you have, not squish the foot to fit the shoe!  Our toe box runs a D width in most of our shoes.  If your foot measures a B, C, D or E on a Brannock device, your forefoot will fit our footwear just fine.  Although we made the toe box a little wider than normal, we did not make the heel any wider as the one big bone of the heel does not stretch or flatten for any reason.
