If you read my post on Tips for Bunion Care you know that I love the product Yoga Toes or one of its many knockoffs. This is my lovely wife displaying her toes. She wears the product as a gentle stretch for her toes 30 minutes daily. It is not meant to wear walking, and you have to moisten the rubber to make it easier to slip on to your toes. Initially, you may only be able to wear it for 5 minutes, then gradually build up the time. It should never hurt. Patients with narrow feet may have trouble fitting the fifth toe (I have had to cut out the partition between the 4th and 5th toes). One of my patients Barbara loved them so much that she brought them for all of her 6 children. It is not the only stretching to do for bunions and hammertoes, but they are definitely a big help!!
