Corrective socks
New hammer toe socks

Hammer toes are usually not a birth defect, but rather the consequence of foot malposition, made worse by hallux valgus or overly narrow footwear. In the case of a hammer toe (hallux malleus, digitus malleus), the metatarsophalangeal joint is overextended upwards and the interphalangeal joint is bent downwards. The distal phalanx finds itself in the medial position. When the distortion is even greater, it is known as claw toe. The basic cause is muscle weakness combined with reduced muscle activity.

The taping band of our hammer toe sock is constructed in a similar way to the muscle. It mobilises the toe joint and puts it back into the right position. In the process, the crooked toe is pulled into its original shape. This counteracts stiffening and the associated consequences.

The benefits at a glance:

  • The hammer toe socks can be worn inside normal shoes
  • Long wearing and therapy period without major restrictions
  • No irritation of the skin
  • The malposition is also corrected while walking
