I’m a fan! I researched Correct Toes prior to buying and everything made perfect sense. I’m a 50-year-old male that has always been very athletic (active runner, hockey, basketball, weight training, hiking, hunting, etc.). I’m blessed and haven’t been significantly prone to injury or illness. My Massage Therapist started me on the path of foot health and there was no turning back!

I’d been having pain in the fourth toe on my left foot. I’d also developed a “clunking” hip. First, I started with FiveFinger shoes and Yoga Toes. The problem is that Yoga Toes are short term and the muscle memory of years wasn’t corrected. Correct Toes fixed that! Since I was already stretching my toes and didn’t have ailments like bunions or hammertoes, I could start wearing the Correct Toes 24/7 right away without a period of getting used to spreading my toes. I experienced an accelerated effect and my feet spread quickly.

Improved balance, less foot fatigue, and improved posture, all as a result of Correct Toes. My hips and legs are strengthening, that’s obvious also! My foot pain is significantly reduced but not gone yet. However, between stretching my toes and maintaining proper toe alignment, I’m seeing wonderful results.

Now my dilemma is replacing my shoe collection! I’ve already tossed my most comfortable, broken down running shoes (you know the kind of beat up shoes that aren’t used for running anymore and are repaired with duct tape—mine were yard shoes) because my toes didn’t fit properly. Luckily my work shoes have a wide enough toe box to accommodate Correct Toes.

Thank you for your wonderful product!

Thank you, Natural Footgear Team, for offering such a comprehensive guide to foot health and a permanent solution to foot ailments! Since childhood, I’ve always found great joy in an active lifestyle. However, over the years of participating in various activities, most notably distance running and hiking, I’ve experienced foot pain. The ailments ranged from Achilles tendonosis, bursitis, and shin splints in my teenage years to bunions and plantar fasciosis in my middle age years.

I’ve been to various podiatrists who have prescribed rest and orthotics, and these treatments only temporarily relieved the pain. Each time I eased back into training and steadily increased my mileage, the plantar fasciosis would unfailingly return. Additionally, the pain from bunions was ongoing. I was sadly beginning to think that I’d never run another marathon again. My husband has truly earned his keep because he introduced me to the Natural Footgear website, and I happily soaked up the wealth of information through the written content and videos. I now am a firm believer in the benefits of Correct Toes, Strutz foot pads, and Injinji toe socks.

I figured if I was going to do this, I better do it right, so the investment in a pair of Lems Primal 2 shoes for everyday wear and Altra running shoes has been worth every penny. My plantar fasciosis pain actually decreased and eventually disappeared WHILE I continued physical activity including running! I was finally allowing my feet to operate the way nature always intended. In addition, the bunion pain is gone, and I can see a physical improvement to my once gnarly feet. I know the process is steady and ongoing, but I’m extremely grateful for the Natural Footgear solution. I’ve been thrilled to share your site with several running buddies who are also well on their way to running happy and pain-free again.
