Perfect for the arthritis in my big toes!
I have had pain in my big toes from arthritis for many years. Most of the pain was caused by the normal bending of the toes while walking as well as the shoes pushing on the top of the joint when the shoes flexed. These insoles completely eliminated this pain. Of course, there is still some pain when not walking but it is very much reduced. As an added benefit, now that I can walk normally instead of trying to avoid putting too much pressure on the toes, I have less pain in my knees, hips, and back! I should note that even though they have a felt surface on them you still need to have normal insoles on top of them. They are simply too hard to use them alone. Make sure your shoes have enough height to accommodate both types of insoles.
