Morton's Neuroma in 2020

Have you ever felt like there was a rock in your shoe when there was none? Morton's neuroma is a painful condition caused by a thickening of the tissue surrounding the nerve between your toes.

When walking or running, there is discomfort on the ball of the foot, usually between the 2nd and 3rd toe. The best shoes for Morton's Neuroma feature a low heel-to-toe drop and a wide toe box. It is imperative your shoe wear is supportive of this condition, as compensation of your stride to avoid the pain can wreak havoc on the rest of the body. Remember, our feet are the foundation from which the rest of our body is supported.

While I am a big fan of Prokinetic Insoles (which lift first metatarsal in order to affect toe strike), Solemate "stick-on" Microlifts (especially for barefoot activities or when you need to wear a shoe with a slim toe box), and Pedag t-form anatomically correct metatarsal pads (for clogs and slip ons), finding a basic tennis shoe, especially for runners, is crucial in order to minimize discomfort.

If you have Morton's neuroma, I suggest checking out the link below which shows the best running shoes on the market in 2020.

I get no kick-back from any of these links, my only intention is to share some helpful information regarding a condition that can be very debilitating.

With love,
