If you only knew how hard I tried to make Sam comfortable (name changed). He had disabling sore feet under the big toe joints. It was more the skin that hurt than anything else. For the last year, he has been a little better with his memory foam orthotic devices (Hannaford style). I tried 6 different topcovers, Shear Ban (blue anti- friction patch), and various accommodations including cutting out the insert and shoe in the area of soreness. Finally, the medical suppliers at JMS Plastics sold me 3 mm J Gel to cover the orthotic, and Sam pronounced a cure.
