Are Correct Toes customizable?

Yes! Here are a few examples:

1. Correct Toes are designed to allow you to progressively increase the space between your toes. This is accomplished by using shims (small pieces of EAV material) in the spaces between the 1st & 2nd toes and the 4th & 5th. You can use 1, 2, or 3 shims in each, depending on your personal needs. As always, any changes should be implemented slowly and progressively, so that your body has ample time to adjust.

2. It is possible to decrease the space between your fourth and fifth toes. This may be useful if: the 5th toe (“pinky” toe) is pushed out too far (this occasionally happens for some types of feet), or to use Correct Toes in shoes that are almost, but not quite, wide enough. To accomplish this, start by cutting ½ of the small interspace along the vertical plane. This will diminish the space between the last 2 toes. If necessary, the whole 4th interspace can be removed. Correct Toes will still work quite well.

3.  Need a bit more space for your toes? Simply use a hole-punch on the first and/or fourth interspace. This increases the stretchiness of Correct Toes.

  1. I just got my correct toes and they seem to fit but they don’t stay on very well, especially on the small-toe end. (My toes are on the short side) Is there a way to customize them to solve this?

    1. Hi Katrinn, thanks for you question and your support of Correct Toes! You can make a modification to the Correct Toes by cutting off the bottom part of the large and small scallop. This will allow you to slide the Correct Toes on to your feet a bit further and keep them on your feet better. If you need a visual let me know and I can email you a photo of the modification.
