Thanks for the responses, everyone. My real problem isn't the shoe, though (I have some with lots of space in the toes - crocs, hiking boots and clogs). It's more a matter of not being able to wear socks without it hurting, and it's becoming an issue with colder weather. Maybe less of an issue tomorrow - they're predicting 19C/66.2F degrees here! To make up for the mornings where we've had frost, I guess...

How about something like hiking boots, which have reinforced toe boxes? Your toe doesn't fit into them like they do with regular shoes - I found them very comfortable with dealing with both sprained toes and chemo-induced arthritis. (Your onc or a podiatrist may have some suggestions, too.)

No regrets, just lessons learned . . .

A tall in the toe area shoe should help. IF not ask your doctor.

Ouch - poor you! I would also say a slightly larger size shoe or some splint things that are used to protect broken toes - a chemist should have them. Hope this helps

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Try shoes a half or whole size larger. There is more room in the toe box and that may help. I'm fond of Crocs but they are not as good for walking as shoes that tie.

Good luck.

Odd question, I know. The nails on the big toe and second toe on my righ foot are painful as a side effect of chemo I had earlier this year. I'm trying to find some way to protect them when I wear shoes/socks. I wore some for the first time today, and OUCH! Winter is coming here (the dreaded 's' word as bantered about today) and I'm going to have to find a resolution to this. Thanks!
