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.
Drew Orchid Great shoes!

To be honest, I've never spent this kind of money on shoes but I've developed foot issues and I have to say these shoes are fantastic. I will be buying more, rebuilding my "shoe wardrobe" into shoes I can wear comfortably.

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.

Drew Jeremy Heavy, tight, arch collapse
May 06, 2013
Reviewer: Tim from Arizona
I bought this shoe for walking long distances. I gave it two stars because the construction appears to be of good quality. However, the shoe feels tight and narrow for a 12 6E. My toes were pinched. Something strange in the design results in the outside edge being slightly raised while there is no arch support so your feet collapse inward at the arch, causing arch and knee pain. Also, the shoe is heavy and fatiguing to walk in. I ended up returning them.

Orthofeet 410 Didnt break in correctly

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.
