Choosing the right shoes to wear is an important decision. When you add in a foot condition, such as hammertoe, the decision gets more difficult. Suffering from this painful condition might have you dreading a visit to purchase footwear at The Galleria in Houston, TX, but here are some helpful tips that will make it easier for you.

Hammertoe is a condition of the foot that occurs when a toe contracts abnormally at the joint in the middle of the toe. Sometimes the toes can be moved and treated with conservative methods, but in other cases the toes are rigid and can only be fixed with surgery.

Hammertoe can lead to other problems such as calluses and corns. More often than not, wearing shoes that are too tight causes this condition, but other contributing factors include trauma (stubbing your toe extremely hard) and nerve damage from diabetes.


Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to adorn your feet while preventing further complications. The first thing to remember is to wear shoes that fit correctly. Don’t force your feet into tight shoes no matter how fashionable they may be. When buying dress shoes, choose ones with a wider toe and a lower heel to allow room for movement. While you’re at the shoe store, you should also consider getting your feet measured. It sounds hard to believe, but your feet do change shape and size over time. Also, don’t be afraid to ask a shoe repair store to stretch your shoes in certain places so you have a perfect fit.

If you have questions about hammertoe, or want more tips on how to care for your feet, give Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee a call at 888-784-5335 and make an appointment at one of our three convenient offices–Sugar Land, Houston, or Missouri City. You may also book your appointment online. Don’t dread shopping for shoes any longer!
