Has anyonr had problems with hammer toes? What about surgery on them?
This is what I use. You can find them at http://www.pedifix.com if you do not see them in a drugstore or medical center of some kind.

My hammer toes are accompanied by a bunion. I use duct tap to keep the hammer toes from overlapping and a spongy foot glove to pull the big toe over. I just gOOGLED " bunion with hammer toes" to find the foot gloves on-line. They work and I wear the all the time although many wear them only at night. Rather depends on your shoes or riding boots as I do horses.
Hi jholland, can you post a picture of your foot glove?
I don't want to have surgery. I wish I could find better inseerts for between my toes
Me too! And what about shoes
I have a pair of extra widr, large toe bed shoes. From a specialty shoe store. Expensive
