exercise sandals ruined my feet!

During the use of exercise sandals more than 25 yrs. ago, my friends and I noticed our toes began to separate.
On my feet, it was between the 2nd & 3rd toe, on hers, the 1st & 2nd.
This caused a funny looking space between the toes and some discomfort.
Over the years, I’ve experienced worsening problems in this area, including discomfort, painful frozen-numb toes and frequent cramping under the toes that wakes me up during the night. A physicial had me try taping the 2nd toe to the 3rd, hoping it would straighten, to no avail.
I’m wondering if there’s anyone else out there that has experienced this problem from wearing exercise sandals, and what I can do about it.

    At one time these were all the rage. Personally, I found them quite uncomfortable. What you are describing sounds like a neuroma or a bursitis. Taping the toes will not do anything to help. I recommend you see a podiatrist for further evaluation.
