Hallux Limitus is the medical term for arthritis of the big toe. It is known as the “wear and tear” arthritis, meaning it is a gradual deterioration, symptomized by a deep aching in the joint of the toe, with inflammation and rigidity.
One of the causes of this type of arthritis is shoe gear. Arthritic shoes with an added depth dimension, removable insoles, and no-tie laces can be of help. Elastic laces from Xtenex will stretch and move with your feet for a stable, yet accommodating fit. The lacing system will adapt to any shoe.
