Morton's Toe is caused by the metatarsal bones being different lengths. A problem is caused when the second toe is longer than the big toe, as the positioning of the metatarsal bones will cause it to extend further forward. This creates pressure on the second toe and can create discomfort and pain when wearing shoes. Insoles for Morton's Toe have been developed to alleviate the pressure on the metatarsal area. Shoe Insoles work closely with the manufacturers to develop the Insoles for Morton's Toe to ensure optimum support for the foot.
Morton's Toe is developed when the second toe is further forward than the big toe. This is caused by the positioning of the metatarsal bones in the foot. Usually, these form a smooth curve across the foot and the toes are aligned correctly. In some cases, the metatarsal bone behind the big toe is shorter than usual. This forces the trajectory of the curve to alter and break away from the smoothness. This does not cause a problem if the second toe is shorter than the big toe, for the big will still extend the furthest. Many people can have Morton's Toe and suffer no discomfort from it.
However, if the second toe is longer than the big toe, Morton's Toe is developed due to the way the second toe will extend further than the big. This causes additional pressure on the second toe and can cause discomfort and pain in the ball of the foot.
Shoe Insoles have worked with manufacturers to develop Insoles for Morton's Toe. This ensures support is given to the metatarsal area and provides cushioning to areas that otherwise will become painful and uncomfortable.
