What is Morton's Neuroma?


Morton’s neuroma is a painful condition in which the nerves in your foot are irritated or damaged. This neuroma causes pain to the ball of your foot. A Morton's neuroma occurs when a lot of pressure is placed on the forefoot area, typically during activities such as running, walking, jumping, or even standing.



Morton's neuroma usually occurs between the third and fourth toe. The nerves between the third and fourth metatarsal bones of your foot are usually affected, triggering pain in this part of your foot. Morton's neuromas can occasionally occur in between the second and third metatarsal bones too. It is not very common to have Morton's neuroma on both feet.



What does a Morton's neuroma feel like? This neuroma is often compared to the sensation of having a stone in your shoe. Morton's neuroma can manifest itself as a sharp pain, burning, tingling, cramping, or total loss of sensation in the front of your foot.



One of the best ways to look after your Neuroma is to wear comfortable shoes for Morton's neuroma. For pain relief, you can apply an ice pack to your neuroma or massage the affected area.



We will discuss the best shoes for Morton's neuroma and give you some tips on what to look out for when shopping for neuroma-friendly shoes!

What are the Best Shoes for Morton's Neuroma?


If you are looking for the best shoes for Morton's neuroma, there are several factors which you need to consider. You may think that "shoes for Morton's neuroma" are all orthopaedic-looking shoes. But fear not! There are plenty of stylish shoes for neuroma sufferers. You just need to know what to look for! 


Leading podiatrist Dr Brad Schaeffer provides his Top Tips on finding shoes for Morton's Neuroma:


1. Choose Wide-Fitting Shoes

2. Choose Shoes with Cushioned Soles

3. Choose Leather Shoes

4. Choose Flat or Low Heeled Shoes



1. Choose Wide-Fitting Shoes:





When you're looking for shoes for Morton's neuroma, you should always look for wide-fitting shoes. The best shoes for a neuroma have a wide toe-box which prevents pressure and direct impact on the forefoot. A wide-fitting shoe will also prevent your toes from overlapping. This ensures that your metatarsal bones do not over-ride which would otherwise cause more pain to your neuroma. 


Wide-fitting shoes for Morton's neuroma can be stylish! Just make sure your footwear fits properly and doesn't pinch that painful nerve between your third and fourth metatarsal.



2. Choose Shoes with Cushioned Soles:






If your neuroma is painful, it is important you look for shoes with soft, cushioned soles. This thick padding will alleviate the pressure on your neuroma as well as provide the comfort your feet need and deserve.


The soles of your neuroma-friendly shoes should provide shock absorption too. This will protect your feet from hard surfaces and prevent further strain or trauma to your neuroma.


All women's shoes for Morton's neuroma should have an arch support mechanism. In addition to metatarsal support, look for shoes with sufficient arch support which will hold your foot in the correct position and decrease the pressure on your neuroma. 



3. Choose Leather Shoes:






The best shoes for Morton's neuroma are crafted from the finest leather. Your feet are less likely to rub in leather shoes. When the weather heats up, you don't need to worry about your feet sweating as much in leather shoes. Leather is durable, flexible and soft. Always look for shoes made from very soft leather, which will keep your Morton's neuroma comfortable.



4. Choose Flat or Low Shoes:






If you suffer from Morton's neuroma, you can still wear heels! We wouldn't recommend wearing platform shoes or heels. Anything higher than 2.5 inches may not be the best solution to your painful feet. However, there are plenty of platforms and heeled shoes for Morton's neuroma.


Choose a shoe with a lower heel, as this will prevent putting pressure on the front of your foot, where your neuroma may already be painful. Again, it is important to look for heels with a wide toe-box which prevents toe cramping or pinching. Your heels for Morton's neuroma should be crafted from very soft leather and contain adequate arch support.
