    I have a problem with my big toe (right foot only) wearing holes in the inserts of any of my athletic/walking/hiking shoes. I recently purchased a pair of Merrell walking/hiking shoes and within 2 months, the inner liner of the shoe has a hole in the area where my big toe would rest. I also have problems with some lower back pain, and my big toe leans toward my other toes (a little). Could the two be related, or so I have a possible problem with my gait causing the abnormal wear in the big toe area only?? Any suggestions for finding treatment options would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    The original poster 2008 most likely has limitation of motion of the big toe joint (hallux limitus). This can happen functionally (weight bearing only) or structurally (all the time.) The 2024 poster may have a similar problem. Foot orthoses designed to off weight the medial column (bones behind the big toe) can help improve motion. Also shoes with a rocker tip can decrease pressure under the big toe. Most running shoes have at least some rocker. Some shoes have a lot more than others.
