Hallux Rigidus

Finding Relief from Hallux Rigidus

For individuals suffering from hallux rigidus, or stiffness in the big toe joint, it's crucial to choose shoes that provide ample support, stability, and comfort to help alleviate pain and avoid further irritation. Alegria's APMA-approved shoes with a stiff or rocker-bottom soles are often recommended, as they limit the motion of the big toe joint when walking, thereby reducing pain. A spacious and deep toe box can also help by reducing pressure on the toe. Alegria shoes not only provide these features, but also include additional features like cushioning and supportive insoles.
