Modern Footwear = Foot Problems!

Modern shoes destroy your feet. Whether you wear high heels, running shoes, or even just casual loafers, nearly all modern footwear is designed for style not function. This means that 98% of the shoes on the market squish your feet into unnatural shapes that can lead to foot deformities, bunions, corns, and other complications. And these are not just cosmetic.

Deformed feet don’t just look bad; the real problems can be much more serious. When your toes have poor dexterity, are squished or overlapping, it impacts the way you walk, run, and stand. Deformed feet are a common cause or contributing cause of knee, hip, and back problems as you often develop abnormal movement patterns to compensate for your imbalances.

ILLUSTRATION: The above images show a very common pattern of foot deformation.
To see this in real life, simply compare the feet of young children (under 5) with the feet of their parents.

Common Pain Problems From Deformed Feet:

  • Blisters
  • Corns and bunions
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Hammertoe
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Knee pain and injury
  • Back pain and injury
  • Painful feet, ankles and toes
  • Poor posture
  • Decreased athletic ability
  • Increased risk of injury
  • Hip problems (from affected gait)

Many podiatrists offer surgery, anti-inflammatory drugs, or shoe insoles as treatments, but these measures often fail long-term because if you don’t fix the underlying problem, it’s very likely to return, no matter what treatment option you choose. The harsh reality is that your feet have become deformed, and your footwear and lifestyle are keeping them that way. This needs to change.

The results experienced by our users have been just as impressive. YOGABODY students around the world use Awesome Toes to help with conditions such as bunions, corns, hammertoe, overlapping toes, and plantar fasciitis. Like me, many people use them for balance, yoga postures, and running too. Awesome Toes are a not a magical cure for all foot problems, but the vast majority of our users experience real benefits, usually within days, and some have experience turn-arounds as dramatic as mine.

How to Use Awesome Toes

  • Good: while relaxing, while watching TV
  • Better: while walking around the house, before/after work, casually
  • Best: while practicing yoga, stretching or inside wide-toed athletic shoes

NOTE: When you first start using Awesome Toes, start slowly. We recommend wearing them for no more than 1 hour initially, and slowly you’ll be able to work up to 4+ hours of continuous use. Just as it’s challenging to stretch for long periods of time, wearing Awesome Toes for long periods of time is a big stretch on your feet, and you should give your body time to ease into it.

What Type of Feet Do You Have?

Below are five common foot shapes, and while there are many more, chances are good that your “ideal foot” falls into one of these five categories. Is there anything wrong with having a second toe longer than the rest? No. Is there anything wrong with having the same length toes all the way across? Again, no. Your feet are unique to you and there are many different-looking feet that are healthy and highly functional.

No matter what your foot shape, everyone wants to avoid overlapping toes, bunions, hammertoes, or toes are that unable to articulate properly. Our feet are not as dexterous as our hands, but they should be able to move freely and dynamically. The purpose of Awesome Toes Corrective Spacers is to bring your foot back to its natural shape, with strong, flexible and useful toes that can help you balance, run, jump, lift and balance weight to keep your body moving functionally for many years to come.

NOTE: There are internet memes suggesting that the foot shapes above reveal genetic heritage. There is no real science basis for this, but the more interesting observation is that not all feet are the same shape and that’s ok.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I wear these inside my slippers?

Yes, we recommend wearing them inside socks, slippers, barefoot or in flip flops around your house. This is one of the simplest ways to help fix your feet and much more effective than just wearing while sitting.

Will they fit inside my running shoes?

Most minimal footwear running shoes work just great with your Awesome Toes as they have a toe width appropriate for natural foot shapes. Common minimal footwear includes NikeFree, Lems, and Merrell (I personally wear Lems). If in doubt, take your toe spacers with you to the shoe store to try them. They should fit comfortably without pressure.

Do these hurt to wear?

They do not hurt, but they can be intense, especially at first and especially if you’re sitting or lying down. The sensation is that of a deep stretch or numbness, and this is often stronger when you’re inactive. This is yet another reason why we encourage activewear use of Awesome Toes. You’ll get faster results with less discomfort.

How long can I wear them?

Initially, aim for about 1 hour per day. Eventually, you’ll work up to 4 hours or more. I currently wear mine for about 8 hours daily (comfortably), but that took months to work up to.

Are the changes lasting? Or will my toes go back?

Flexibility changes can be very long lasting, but keep in mind if you continue to spend most of your day in restrictive footwear, you’ll very likely end up with squished feet again. If you’re able to change your daily shoes to more natural footwear and use Awesome Toes you’ll see amazing results.

But I have to wear high heels for work, is there any point in using these?

Yes, for sure. High heels are a disaster for your feet. If you wear them daily, you’ll be fighting an uphill battle, but you still need to fight! Some of our most avid users are people who have to wear high heels daily.
