Suggestions to alleviate shoe pain

  1. I am not sure what to call it (toe joint/knuckle)? Anyway, you know the large joint on the big toe? When certain shoes hit that joint just right, it KILLS me. Is there any type of padding or something that will alleviate the pressure? Thanks! (I figured if anyone knows, y'all do.)
     
  2. I have that to some times but find the best cure is great leather shoes or boots! I don't find that heel height has anything to do with it
     
  3. It's just the cut, I think. If a shoe hits me right on that bone, like right at the joint, it is so painful. And it seems that a lot of shoes hit that spot.
