Morton’s Neuroma is more correctly termed as interdigital nerve compression, and is not a cancerous condition. It is a thickening of nerve tissue in the toes (most often between the 3rd and 4th). Symptoms are foot pain and burning in the ball of the foot, and possibly numbness in the toes.
Most often, your symptoms are caused by compression from wearing shoes which are too narrow. With a tight toe box, your feet suffer and affect your overall health. While flip flops and sandals may be the most comfortable for you, without proper support they aren’t always appropriate – and can also lead to achilles problems and plantar issues.
We know that Morton’s Neuroma symptoms can ruin your day, especially when it requires you to remain on your feet for hours at a time. If this condition is your diagnosis, choosing a pair of shoes from this list can make walking a joyful experience again!
This shoe is favored by people working on their feet all day for good reason…they are extremely comfortable. Orthopedic-grade cork comprises the foot bed, along with latex – and a tooled upper lends a bit of fashion.
