Overlapping Toes?

I am looking for two or three athletes with a toe(s) that curls under the next toe. In most of the cases I have seen, it’s the pinky toe that curls and rests under the next inside toe.

Overlapping Toes

Overlapping Toes

These cases have the appearance of one toe that is usually straight, but overlaps the next toe, which curls underneath it. The toe that curls under is susceptible to blisters, maceration from moisture of skin-to-skin contact, and toenail issues as the toe curls downward.

I have an idea that might help with these overlapping toe problems and am looking for a few people to test my idea. No guarantees, but I think it could help.

If you are interested, please send me an email and tell me a bit about:

  • Which toes are affected
  • What problems this has caused
  • What you have tried to resolve the problem
  • A snail mail address
  • Send a photo if possible
