Effective and sturdy
I tripped and jammed my big toe pretty bad. After a few weeks of my toe still being in pain, I ordered the turf toe insoles to see if this would help. They are really great! It keeps me from bending my toe too much so my foot can heal without me aggravating the injury further. After a week of wearing these in my sneakers, I can feel my foot is actually getting better. The insoles do take up a bit of room in your shoe so they didn't work with my dress or office casual shoes. But I keep them in my sneakers. I just had to loosen up the laces. I have a wide women's 8 1/2 size shoe so I got a men's size 6 insole. Works great with my wide feet.

They did the job for me!
An orthopedic doctor suggested this product many years ago, due to turf toe development because of tennis....and it's kept my turf toe in check ever since. I can tell when I play tennis, pickleball or go to the gym and do not have them in my shoes. My big toe starts hurting. I trim off the felt behind the steel plate, and put the pad under my shoe insole. It will tighten up my shoe some, but I just loosen my laces. I use these steel inserts in all my athletic shoes.
good luck!

Second Pair
This is my second pair of these. The first pair got wet while boiling seafood (wet with seafood water) and had to be tossed. Bleach didn't help. I will probably purchase another pair just to have a second pair.

They work just fine and fit perfectly. I use them because of arthritis in both my big toe joints. I do not find that they take up too much room in most shoes. I am now able to wear shoes that I haven't been able to wear in a while. Highly recommended.

works well but causes another issue
I recently broke my big toe and needed rigid soled shoes to return to work, where I average 3 miles put on my feet in a 6 hour shift. I didn't want to purchase shoes just for a couple months of wear, so I purchased these insoles. They are comfortable and do not allow any of my toes to bend should I forget to walk flat-footed. The only issue is the fit in my good athletic shoes, even with the original insole removed. I had to switch to a wider pair to keep my toes from pressing up against the upper. If I wasn't bothered by friction on that toe's nail (which is going to fall off any day) this wouldn't be an issue. Just be aware that when this insert is in place, you lose space for your toes.

At the advice from my podiatrist I bought these for my dislocated toe. The inner sole fits the shoe perfectly and is very comfortable. I am able to walk easily with it in the shoe. The ordering process was very quick and efficient.

Disappointed
Insert itself is true to size and well made, but thick enough to need at the least to remove any insole in shoe before placing it, or else makes fit of shoe too tight and painful. For that reason I found it of unfortunate limited utility since it squeezed the sore toe joint in the shoe to unacceptable painful level although it does limit metatarsal-phalanghal motion as advertised.

Perfect
After reading all reviews I thought I would order a pair of insoles. My size 6 fit perfectly. They are super light but the steel insert prevents most movement of my big toe joint, so they work as they should. Even though they are super thin, I realize they cause my shoes to be a little tight in the toe, so if I keep wearing them in years to come, I may have to buy a half size larger and wider shoe to keep my toes comfortable. Just a thought if you're thinking about buying a pair, you're shoe size may need to be larger.

Good Idea
Both of my big toes have limited motion. I have Hallux Rigitus in one foot and Hallus Limitus in the other. But, I like to backpack! With carefully chosen boots and shoes I can walk about three miles without undo pain. Using the Turf Toe Half Steel inserts I am not limited in my hiking distance by my feet!

The inserts are well designed to fit normal width boots and shoes, and the steel is flexible enough to allow a normal gait but still reduce stress on the feet and toes.

The padding on the inserts is minimal but maintains the position of the insert. However, it fills the shoe and doesn't allow additional padding unless the shoe is oversized.

I suggest that the manufacturer provide options for several widths to fit shoes of varying width. I also suggest options for minimal additional padding.

Very comfortable
So far, so good. They fit my walking shoes well. They have a little flex which is good - I was worried these would be too stiff to comfortably walk in but they almost feel like they are not even there. Some have complained about the felt coming off. Will have to wait and see about that. This is a much more cost effective alternative than the $100/pair carbon fiber inserts my shoe store tried to sell me.

Works for my painful toes
I have been developing pain in the MTP joints (base of my great toe as well as the base of my 2nd and 3rd toes) for the past few months. I needed support that was semi rigid to protect those joints. I brisk walk 3 plus miles 5-6 days a week and was afraid I was going to have to cut back. I have only been using the insoles for a couple of weeks, but I can tell it has reduced the strain on my toes without hindering my walking. I placed the insoles under my Asics removable insoles and loosened the shoe strings just a bit to accommodate for the insoles. I am planning to order another pair as I have 2 pairs of walking shoes that I alternate.
So, though I haven't used them for very long, I can tell a definite difference and feel the half sole was just what I needed. This type of insole is impossible to find on the shelf of any local store in Springfield, MO so I was pleased to be able to order them from the Healthy Feet Store.

These will show signs of rust in the first three days... but I still need it and it functions
I was shocked to see rust on the steel plate after only three days. I wear my new half steel insoles in a very dry surgical boot, under another fabric insert. I am not sure why they would rust at all and so fast, I do not have sweaty feet, plus I had a sock on. This is not stainless steel, but they should make them as stainless steel to prevent rust. Observations you might like to know before ordering: I ordered women's 8 and it fits best in my 8.5 shoes rather than my size 8 shoes. Everyone knows each style and brand of shoe will run different. The half insole is too narrow to support the width of my foot in a wider format casual shoe like a casual running or walking shoe (like a sketchers) so some of my foot hangs off each side. If your shoe is a narrow like a dress shoe than its ok, but a wider running type shoe your feet hang over the side as the ball of your foot spreads out over the edges. The width of steel plate in the women's 8 half sole is- 2.75" and the length is 4.675"- The total length of the felt insole is 9 7/8 inches. The steel plate where it falls... my pinkie toe falls off the side nearly all the way and the joint of my big toe about 1/4" to 1/2 inch off. All that being said, I use this product to help stiffen an already stiff surgical shoe for a broken toe that is hard to heal and taking longer, and given there are not a lot of options out there I will have to use this product rust and all. I really like the fact that I can layer this and actually use medial type tape to tape it right to my foot. Not sure you all need to use it that way but works good that way too.

Comfortable Easy to use insole
I broke my toe. My doc recommended I buy a turf toe half insole. She said it would help keep my toe straight and thus speed up the healing process. So I did buy this insole. What she didn't tell me was that this type of insole would actually relieve the pain! I'm so glad I did. I am almost pain free after only one week of wearing these insoles. Thank you

Great product, great price
I've been suffering from turf toe for a while, and finally sprung for an orthotic (as I should have done much earlier!). This was by far the least expensive option.

These helped with discomfort immediately, and easily fit into most of my shoes--I just remove the insole and replace it with this. I didn't need a set, just one, but that's not a complaint, it's a great value! I wore them yesterday to walk my dog, and they didn't slip at all. I'm wearing them today with dress shoes and even without socks they're comfortable.

Insole Review
The insole fits well into most shoes. I bought it because my Foot Doctor told me to buy shoes with a stiff sole because of a spur on the joint of my big toe. I had numerous shoes that I could no longer comfortably wear because they were too flexible. The insole does make the front of the front of the shoe stiffer, so I can wear shoes that I was unable to wear before. It works better in sneakers, if I put it under the insole that is already in the shoe. The flat metal plate does not conform to the contours of my foot, so it is not comfortable for walking etc. for extended periods of time. My foot is on the wide side and it might have been better to get a Men's insole in a size smaller as it would have been wider. You may want to order down a size for dress shoes or shoes with a little heel.

Amazing,worth every penny
Just wanted to log in and say that I agree with all the great reviews for this product! My 11 year old daughter got a Grade 1-2 Turf Toe playing indoor soccer a few weeks ago. Her left toe has always bothered her actually. Anyhow, it was really painful and I could tell she didn\'t want to kick with her \"favorite\" left foot. So, we iced, rested, etc..it was still tender after 2 weeks. With Fall Soccer Season comin soon, I had to find out how to treat Turf Toe..and found these steel insoles. They came in 2 days, I cut them to fit in her shoes, we went out to kick the ball around. She was tentative at first, then smiled..and said \"omg, it doesn\'t hurt\" Be blasted the ball back and forth like normal, then she promptly came inside and put them in her running shoes. And she actually was runnig..normally!! I guess not letting the Toe Joint bend/move is VERY helpful in not only recovery..but playing with pain too. They are a bit thick, so be aware of that if you want both these..and your insoles.

We also have a sizing chart on our web site. This sizing chart can be used for European to U.S. sizing conversions and has the approximate inches per size. Keep in mind that most retail shoes are medium width.

The difference between shoe lengths is approximately 1/3 inch and the difference between widths is approximately 1/8 inch.

If your shoes are too small or too big, we offer free exchanges. Please contact us at 1-866-324-3338 so we can assist you with your exchange.

I need the shoes or foot care product by tomorrow.

We do not ship overnight.

We offer express shipping which is available for most shoes and products. With express shipping, you will receive the shoes, products or slippers in two to three days plus processing time.

How do I return shoes?

Please read through our Return Information page.

How do I exchange shoes?

Please read through our Exchange Information page.

Can you bill my insurance company or can I use Medicare to buy my shoes?

No, we do not work with insurance companies or Medicare. The codes on some pages are provided as a guideline in selecting products that adhere to the strict guideline established by the U.S. government. The Therapeutic Shoe Bill (which pays for shoes for at risk Diabetics) was designed to ensure that at-risk diabetics were actually fit by a skilled practitioner to check the fit of the shoe on the foot to decrease the odds of amputation.

I need a shoe with great support and extra depth.

All of our shoes are orthopedic, diabetic or therapeutic.

90 % of our shoes have removable insoles and have added depth. Each shoe will specify under "Special Features" if it has removable insoles and added depth.

How do I use my orthotics in my new shoes?

Go to here for instructions.

It is suggested that you remove the existing inserts and unlace the shoe completely. Check the length of the new insert against the existing insert, and trim to fit if necessary. Insert the new insert making sure to butt the heel and roll the orthotic into the toe section. Next put the shoes on and stand up, making sure the insert is lying flat. Next, lace the shoes to conform to the unique shape of your foot.

I am normally a 2E but the shoe I am looking at is not offered in a 2E. What width do I choose?

Each manufacturer gets to establish their own width standards. Some width sizes are in even numbers and some are in odd numbers. A 2E with one manufacturer might be the same as a 3E with another. Again, the difference between each width size is about 1/8th of an inch.

What is the difference between a 2E and a 5E in a slipper?

A 2E and a 5E are the same width for slippers, but the upper is enhanced by " to allow for the increased width.

My Doctor says I need a shoe with a good arch support, what would you suggest?

Most of the shoe & slipper brands we carry have shoes with excellent arch support. If you have questions on a specific brand or style, feel free to call our customer service staff at 1-866-324-3338.

In addition, most of our shoes have removable footbeds to accommodate your custom orthotics or over the counter arch support insoles. You can put arch supports insoles into any shoe that has a removable footbed. Shoes with a removable insole or shoes that have extra depth make it easier to put an insole or arch support in them.

What is the difference between a 3/4 arch support and a full length?

A 3/4 arch support extends from the ball of the foot (right behind the toes) to the heel. A full length insole extends the entire length of the foot. A 3/4 length insole is more appropriate for dress shoes or those with hammertoes, crossed toes or bunions that may need that extra room. The full length insole offers cushioning the entire length of the foot and is trimmable with ordinary household scissors.

Can I order 2 pair of shoes and send one pair back if they do not fit?

Yes, you will need to pay return postage for returns. See our Return Information page.

What makes a shoe a diabetic shoe?

There are four main characteristics of a diabetic shoe:

  • Avaialble in at least 3 widths (N, M, W, XW, etc.)
  • Made of a protective material (normally leather)
  • Solid means of closure (tie or Velcro)
  • Extra 3/16" interior depth to accomodate orthotics

What are European sizes?

European sizes are based on a metric measurement. They are not normally available in widths. Please visit our sizing chart.

What is the difference between extra, double and super depth?

Extra-depth includes all diabetic shoes (by definition) that incorporates 3/8" interior depth

Double or extra-depth is 1/8" more, which makes it 1/2 inches deep

Super depth is at least 9/16 of an ince
