Best Morton’s Toe Shoes for Men and Women

Medical information provided by Josh White DPM  /  Written by OrthoFeet Team on October 19, 2023 Blog Home

If you have Morton’s toe it means that your second toe is longer than the big toe, which may cause you pain or discomfort in the ball of the foot. It can also be a challenge finding shoes that fit correctly. 

Luckily, the right shoes can ease the pain and help avoid complications, such as Morton’s neuroma, plantar fasciitis and hammertoe. To help you find the right footwear, we’ve put together a list of recommended shoes for Morton’s toe.

Let’s dive straight in.

Best running shoes for Morton's toe

Women’s Kita Men’s Yari

Kita Rose

Why you’ll love it

  • Smart slip-on technology eliminates the need to bend down
  • Water repellent, breathable uppers


  • Sizes: women 5-12; men 7-14
  • Widths: women B-2E; men D-4E
  • Upper materials: stretch knit


These sneakers take footwear to the next level.

The hands-free wear is made possible thanks to an innovative spring incorporated in the back of the shoe. When you insert your foot, the spring bends down and as soon as the foot is in place, it recoils to secure it. This means that when you put these shoes on, you do not need to bend down or even tie laces.

Additionally, the wide and roomy toe box will accommodate your Morton’s toe, while the stretchable uppers will conform to your unique foot shape and create a pressure free fit. 

You will walk more easily and painlessly in these sneakers, as several layers of cushioning with anatomical arch support absorb the shock every time your foot hits the ground, and the ergonomic soles with mild rocker design help to propel the foot forward with less effort. 


Best walking shoes for Morton's toe

For men: Edgewater

Why you’ll love it

  • Fabric uppers stretch to fit
  • Rubber outsole offers improved traction

  • Widths: D-4E
  • Upper materials: stretchable fabric


Made with breathable flexible fabric that stretches to fit and takes on the shape of your foot, even as it swells during the day, the Edgewater sneakers make walking an enjoyable, pain free experience. 

The unique shape of the forefoot is round, wide and tall, comfortably accommodating your Morton’s toe. The cushioning insole is extremely supportive and the rubber outsole strengthens road grip, offering improved stability when you walk. 

You’ll benefit from the extra depth design that spans from the heel to toe, creating a roomier fit for the uneven toe length. 

The premium orthotic insoles with advanced arch support ease pain across your foot and all the way up to your knees, hips and lower back. The soft and smooth interior comes with extra foam padding to avoid irritation and offer soft contact with sensitive skin.  

For Women: Coral

Coral Blue

Why you’ll love it

  • Perfectly marries style with function
  • Breathable, antimicrobial materials


  • Sizes: 5-12
  • Widths: B-2E
  • Upper materials: stretch knit


The Coral sneakers are not only stylish and available in 9 different colors, but also the best shoes for any high or low impact activity - the perfect combination of form and function.

Any pressure point in your feet will be protected thanks to the stretchable uppers that move with your foot and shape according to its shape, just like a custom shoe. 

On the bottom, the EVA midsole, together with the air pocket under the heel, cushion and protect your feet and body from impact with every step. 

In addition, there are two features that make the Coral feel very lightweight on your feet. The first is the materials the shoe is made of and the second is the ergonomic sole, which literally propels your foot forward with little effort, making walking much easier. 


Best hiking shoes for Morton's toe

For men: Hunter Black

Hunter Black

Why you’ll love it

  • Rubber toe guard
  • Waterproof leather uppers


  • Sizes: 7-14
  • Widths: D-6E
  • Upper materials: soft leather


This is probably the best boot for hiking. In fact, this is probably the best boot for anyone (even with major foot conditions!) and anything, including spending lazy days at home or in your backyard. The reason that the Hunter Black is such a versatile boot is that it’s so incredibly comfortable. 

The soft, leather waterproof upper keeps your feet feeling dry even when you step in puddles, while the rubber soft guard keeps your toes safe even if you bump into something and the wide toe box ensures your toes have enough room to spread naturally. 

The interior is completely seamless to provide protection for sensitive skin, and the extra padded heel collar provides the heel and ankle cushioning with every step. 

To sum it all up, there aren't many boots out there designed with this many features but still manage to be super lightweight.


For Women: Dakota Blue

Dakota Blue

Why you’ll love it

  • Rubber lug outsole
  • Waterproof membrane


  • Sizes: 5-12
  • Widths: B-2E
  • Upper materials: water sealed leather


Hiking can be tough on a Morton’s toe, but not with this pair of stylish hiking boots. 

The Dakota boots are able to provide exceptional grip and stability for outdoor activities thanks to the rubber lug outsole - a sole with a deep indentation pattern design used in many sport and work shoes. 

The high quality, water sealed leather uppers, as well as the gusseted tongue, seal out water and at the same time allow moisture to escape, keeping your feet dry and healthy. 

The boots also feature an orthotic insole with anatomical arch support and a cushioning heel pad that helps to distribute pressure evenly across the foot. This can help alleviate the discomfort associated with Morton's toe and provide added support and stability when walking or hiking.

Additionally, the non-binding design helps to prevent pressure points and promote circulation in the foot.

Does Morton's toe affect shoe size?

Yes, Morton's toe can affect shoe size, as the longer second toe may require a larger shoe size and a unique shoe design to accommodate it. 

When shopping for shoes, it's important to find a size, width and depth that fit comfortably and provide enough space for the toes to move freely. 

In some cases, people with Morton's toe may need to size up to accommodate the longer second toe, while others may find that they can still wear their usual shoe size with some adjustments, such as wearing shoes with a wider toe box or adjusting laces or straps to reduce pressure on the ball of the foot.

Here are other features you should look for in shoes if you have Morton's toe. By the way, this list can also be helpful if you’re looking for shoes for morton's neuroma:

  • Wide toe box. A wide and deep toe box can properly accommodate your longer second toe.
  • Arch support. Good arch support distributes the weight of the foot more evenly and reduces pressure on the ball-of-foot.
  • Cushioning. Good cushioning in the insole and midsole can help absorb shock and reduce impact on the ball of the foot.
  • Adjustable fit. Adjustable straps or laces can help you achieve a better fit and reduce slipping or rubbing.
  • Low heels. Avoid shoes with high heels, as they can shift the weight forward and increase pressure on the ball of the foot.
  • Ergonomic sole. A mild rocker bottom design facilities foot motion and minimizes joint movement.
