Hammertoe: When you broke it, it sounds like the bone didn't heal straight, and over the years the shoes have put pressure on the bone. When excessive pressure is put on the toe bone over a period of time, the bone gets bigger to be able to take the extra pressure from the shoe. The skin over the bone starts getting thicker to protect the bone and the toe swells and becomes inflammed. Visit the Podiatrist ...Read more

I have no arch in my foot, will this make my chronic ankle instabillity worse? Arch shoes hurt, how else could i solve this issue?

Stability: The height of the arch is less important than how stable it is in gait. If your arches "collapse" when you walk, this causes strain on the other structures of the feet and ankles. Shoes seldom cure foot problems but a poor shoe will worsen the situation. See a podiatrist who can discuss making foot orthotics for you. In some cases, surgery can even be appropriate. ...Read more
