Shoes for Ball Of Foot Pain / Metatarsalgia

Ball of foot pain, more commonly known as Metatarsalgia, is a general term to denote a painful condition in the area just before the toes in the metatarsal region of the foot. These bones equally share the weight of a person during walking and daily activities. The most common cause of metatarsalgia pain is an imbalance in the long bones of the foot and is often caused from improper fitting footwear. Other causes include arthritis, diabetes, which can cause nerve-type pain in the foot, calluses or skin lesions that cause the weight on the foot be unevenly distributed, sports that place tremendous pounding on the ball of the foot, and shoes with small toe boxes that cramp your toes.
Relief and Prevention
  • Add metatarsal pads to your shoes to spread the weight.
  • Wear shoes with wide toe boxes and mulitple insoles to increase or decrease the box space.
  • Use shoe insoles or inserts to help spread your weight more equally across the entire bottom of your foot.
