Thanks so much for all the information! Where do you find the thin Velcro straps mentioned in this article to keep the Correct Toes in place? I have only found straps that are 1 inch wide, so too thick.

Hi, Rebecca,

You are so very welcome!

To answer your question: You will most likely find rolls of velcro at your local home improvement store. Even if the velcro bands only come in a wide width, you can simply use a pair of scissors to cut them to size.

I hope this info helps!

All the best,

I’m looking for a product that will retrain the 4th toe joint to lie flat and untwist the pinky, which lies to the side and slightly under the 4th toe. It seems the only way to retrain them is to place them in the correct position with some restraint yet some flexibility. However, it doesn’t look like this product would do that. Without giving medical advice, might these statements be correct or incorrect? If incorrect, how so? Thanks for any assistance or ideas or direction you may provide.

Hi, Gloria,

Thank you for your comment. I’m going to suggest that Correct Toes is exactly the product to retrain/realign the 4th and 5th toes. The device operates in a gentle, yet effective way to restore optimal toe alignment and works particularly well for this purpose when used in a weight-bearing situation. Its anatomical design ensures that all toes are naturally (not rigidly) guided into their optimal position, which, when combined with weight-bearing activity (e.g., standing, walking, running, etc.), yields a powerful corrective effect over time.

I’d say, if you’re curious about the device, give it a go and see if it works for you. We offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on Correct Toes, so if you find that it’s not right for you, you can simply send it back to us for a refund.

If you have any other thoughts or questions, please do send them our way!

Kind regards,
Marty Hughes, DC
