Since my little toe started subluxing and the orthopaedic surgeon I saw said I cannot have surgery because of my hypermobility. I now get shoes with a bespoke orthotic from the hospital's surgical appliances. I used to just get orthotics but because I have such a problem buying wide shoes I now get shoes. Even wearing an orthotic has not stopped my little toe from subluxing. I just tape it to the next toe for support (and now that toe is bent). I have tried different bandages and tapes. I have been given exercises to strengthen my toes by a physio which I know I should do more often. I cannot understand why it is such a nightmare buying very wide, supportive shoes that don't look bl**dy awful. Any reasonable looking shoe that I have found I can't get an orthotic in it.
