Proper fitting: You need to wear shoes that are wide enough at the toes that they do not pinch you toes together. Open toe shoes would also be an option.

Corn: However , if the toe is too contracted shoes won't help all that much , if at all. See your podiatrist for an exam and recommendation.

Ones that aren't too: Big and ones that aren't too small. Friction basically will cause rubbing on he toes and this can happen from shoes that are either too big or too small.
