I’m familiar with this information, and I experience problems with shoes. Shoes cause problems with my feet. The problem is, I cannot find any shoes that allow my whole foot to be on the liner! I’m almost thinking I need to make my own shoes!

Hi, Donna,

Thank you for your comment. Have you tried out any of the footwear we offer on our site? All of the shoes we sell have a wide, accommodating toe box that provides ample space for toe splay and foot flexion. A little bit of liner spillover is okay if the shoe’s upper is flexible and expansile.

If we can help you out with anything moving forward, please just let us know!

Kind Regards,
Andrew Potter

I just received my Correct Toes after finding them on a YouTube search, after suddenly developing what appears to be tailor’s bunions. The tailor’s bunions are painful to walk on and deadly painful at the end of the day. I also purchased the toe socks and a pair of Topo shoes. I re-laced the shoes to make them even wider when I walk by moving the bottom lace up one notch (I had seen this as a way to help make regular shoes wider to help with tailor’s bunions). If these devices correct and help remedy my painful foot situation, I will be forever grateful and one of your best customers and advocates. I’m wearing them to my doctor’s office tomorrow to show him, as I am going to see about his recommendation for a remedy to my chronic foot pain. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks!

Hi, Roger! Thank you for your comment. We’re happy to hear that you’re pursuing a natural approach to healing your feet. We wish you all the best with it!

One additional product you might consider for shoe lacing purposes is Hickies No-Tie Laces:

These little guys can turn almost any shoe or boot into a slip-on, and there are a number of different settings you can use to make them looser or tighter, depending on your needs. Just a thought!

Please do keep us updated on your progress. And if you have any questions moving forward, please do let us know!

Kind regards,
Andrew Potter
