The right choice of shoes for hallux complaints: Optimal support from the hallux insole

Hallux complaints, especially with deformities such as hallux valgus, rigidus and varus, can have a significant impact on the everyday life of those affected. One of the main factors that significantly influence the course of these complaints is the choice of the right footwear. But what exactly should you consider when choosing shoes, especially in combination with the innovative Hallux insole?

Wide toe area:

Shoes with a wide toe box provide enough space for the toes to move naturally without adding additional pressure. This is particularly important to relieve the symptoms of hallux valgus.

Flexible but stable sole:

A flexible sole allows the foot to roll naturally. In combination with the Hallux insole, which was specially developed to stabilize the big toe joint, the result is a perfect balance of flexibility and stability.

Low shoe weight:

Light shoes reduce the strain on the feet and make walking more comfortable.

Good cushioning:

A well-cushioned shoe can absorb the impact of walking. The Hallux insole supports this with its targeted support and cushioning, which can reduce the discomfort.

Adjustable closures:

Shoes with adjustable fasteners (e.g. shoelaces or Velcro fasteners) enable individual adjustment and ensure that the foot sits securely in the shoe.

No high heels:

High heels can increase stress on the forefoot. Flat shoes or shoes with a low heel are more suitable for those affected by hallux.

Combination with the Hallux insole:

Our hallux insole is designed to be worn in combination with the existing shoe sole. This provides additional cushioning and targeted support for the big toe joint. The advantage? The foot is optimally supported, discomfort is reduced and walking is made easier.

In summary, it can be said that the right choice of shoes in combination with the hallux insole can make a significant contribution to improving the quality of life of people with hallux complaints. Therefore, always make sure that your footwear is not only fashionable, but also healthy for your feet!
