A hammertoe is a foot deformity in which the second toe becomes buckled and bends downward in a hammer-like shape. A hammertoe is usually caused by repeated bumping of the toe against the front of a shoe, which irritates the joint and eventually enlarge it.
About Orthotic Shoes:
Orthotic shoes are shoes that contain orthotics, which are removable orthopedic insoles that help cushion and stabilize the foot. Orthotic shoes may also refer to items designed with additional room to insert orthotics.

Very comfortable and very nice looking. Can be worn for almost any occasion. Needs better shoe laces. The ones supplied do not stay tight and must be retied to keep the good fit and support.

I do like the extra width at the toes. Wish it was a little more stylish. Velcro is noisy - but I guess that is all they can use. I am in real estate and sometimes have to remove my shoes when showing a home. Most of the time I can slip them off and on without the velcro.

Orthofeet 410 Didnt break in correctly
April 21, 2013
Reviewer: Mark from Rochester, NY
I've been wearing this style of Orthofeet shoes for a few years now. For the most part I have been pleased but this particular pair just did not break in properly. It is the size I always order but for some reason I am getting blisters on my toes and heels. I tried to make comfort tweaks with the included inserts but to no avail. The fit was good the first week or so but as time went on they fit more and more poorly. Not sure what went wrong with this pair. Unfortunately, I can not return since they obviously have been worn and I threw out the box.

The Drew Helia is really a comfortable shoe. I have many lower body problems & this shoe has helped tremendously with all the pain. I have 3 pairs of these now in different colors & truly love them.
