👋Peekaboo, is this you?🦶
Repetitive pressure & rubbing from your big toe or your little toe may cause small holes to appear on the upper of your shoes, what does this mean?
Some possibilities include:
Choose a shoe with a wider toe box to allow some wiggle room
Try half a size larger shoe. Allow a thumb's width space between your toes & the end of the shoe, & remember that your foot will swell & enlarge when you exercise
Try an alternate lacing technique such as parallel, wide foot or diagonal lacing. Read our previous blog here on lacing techniques
Ensure your toenails are trimmed!
Running technique: a pronounced heel strike +/- overstride may lead to you using your toe extensors to lower the foot to the ground during foot landing.
