What are the best shoes for Morton’s Neuroma?
What is Morton’s Neuroma?
Morton’s Neuroma is caused by an irritated or damaged nerve in the foot, leading to common symptoms including shooting, stabbing or burning pain. Suffers can also suffer from tingling or numbness in their affected foot.
What makes a shoe good for Morton’s Neuroma?
Sufferers of Morton’s Neuroma should avoid wearing high heeled and tight-fitting pointy shoes. Instead, wider-fitting shoes are recommended to prevent pinching of the affected nerve. ShoeMed recommends a range of stable rocker shoes and shoes with a firmer footbed. Stable rocker sole shoes help to provide additional support to the forefoot and helps to reduce the impact going through the joint. Unlike traditional flat bottom shoes, rocker soles guide the wearer through a natural walking motion, helping to reduce peak pressure points and distribute the striking load across the foot. Alongside correctly fitted footwear, a metatarsal insert can also provide further support and cushioning.
