Turf Toe Half Steel Toe Insert's Ideal For Turf Toe Injuries

Half Steel, Turf Toe Inserts are Doctor Recommended because they are ideal for treating Turf Toe. The steel acts as a means of immobilizing the toe joint to prevent it from bending during walking and sports, thus aiding the healing process. These insoles combine the benefits of a special spring steel insert with the cushioning of a padded top. Used to prevent and correct metatarsophalangeal(M.P.) joint injuries.
  • Please note: If you wear a half size, please order the next whole size BELOW. For example, if you're a size 9.5, it's recommended to order a size 9.
  • Packaged per pair
  • Laser cut spring steel .020" thick
  • 1/8" durable felt

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.

Really helps!
I am dealing with Hallux Limitus and was very happy that these insoles really help and allow me to wear a few of my favorite shoes with out pain. I was able to add it on top of the existing insoles which make them very convenient.

They Work!!
Our son plays football and was playing with a severe sprain to his big toe. The FIRST time he put them was the day they came, which happened to be game day, he felt immediate relief. He was able to push off without pain. Definitely recommend these!!

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

turf toe half steel insoles
two weeks in and they help big toe, but have brought forth another problem of the fatty portion behind the toe and smaller toes has become a very tender area which gets painful and prevents walking.

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.

Turf toe
The left one is fine. The heel end of the right one worked up the heel on my shoe and then would not straight out to be put back in.

Toe surgery recovery
My husband wears these in his dance shoes and they've helped him stay comfortable--the extra time on the dance floor is paying off in leaps and bounds in terms of our progress as a couple who spent a few years in beginners class before taking on the lifers in the tango community around here!

Worked Great!
I just tried to tape my foot when I got turf toe playing soccer. After about a year of it getting worse, I decided that I needed to get something better. After reading reviews, I decided to try this out. After a year of wearing it in my daily shoes as well as my soccer shoes, my turf toe is finally gone completely. Best thing someone can do to get rid of their turf toe.

Works great
I had turf toe that I tried to just allow to heal by itself or by taping it up. After a year and no progress (except for negative), I decided to do other things to fix it. I bought this and was very skeptical. I saw results within a couple months while still playing 2-5 indoor soccer games a week (I'm a frequent toe punter/bender of the ball as well). It is very comfortable and you get used to it very quickly.

Fantastic Inserts!
I have been using the Turf Toe Half Steel Toe Inserts in my running sneakers since my sports medicine physician diagnosed me with a metatarsal phalangeal joint injury two years ago. The inserts really seem to maintain stability and lessen the impact on the front halves of my feet. I have experienced little to no pain since I began using the inserts; in fact, the only time I feel any pain is when I wear high heels, but I'll never give those up!

stabilized the toe greatly and I have played soccer pain free since I started using the insert. I am enjoying playing again.

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 1-866-324-2228.

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
