Fantastic- barely any pain!
These insoles feel a little different at first, but after a while, you get used to it.  I would recommend wearing them for shorter periods at first, not all day.  I have worn them in my work boots and they work just fine, but I believe they are best suited for your athletic/training shoes.  Very well made and I believe they are a great value!

Hallux Trainer Insoles
Seems to address my problems to a T (as in Turf Toe).  The extension under the great toe was good and did reduce my pain significantly.  Forefoot pain is much improved.  I tend to use these mostly in my running shoes.

Not great for my needs
These weren't great for my needs. The metatarsal bump was too big, and the arch was also too big. I found the felt metatarsal dancers pads under my existing insoles (and new ones I bought that weren't rigid) better for me....

Good insert for my regular shoes
I have stage three arthritis in my big toe joints. I put these inserts in a pair of my regular shoes. This insert enabled me to walk in these shoes again without as much pain. I like them because the insert is supportive and also has a cushion and arch support. One word of caution if you are new to inserts... I found that I need a half size larger shoe (or a wider shoe) in order to accommodate thicker insoles. This is because thicker insoles can increase the pressure on the big toe joint as it comes in contact with the top of the shoe.

Hallux Trainer Insoles
I have recently purchased a pair of the Hallux Insoles and have so far tried them out whilst going for a run and also playing tennis and so far, it has been very good. I have Hallux Limitus in both my big toes and whenever I do load bearing movements, my pain in my toes increases and it sometimes leads to gout, which is quite a painful condition. I had previously bought the carbon plates and that also helped my toe condition but it did result in my runners feeling quite flat so I am hopeful these inserts will fit far, so good!

good for Hallux rigidus
An orthopedist had recommended use of a Morton's extension for the arthritis in my toe joint.  But the Morton's extension did not stay in place and would not conform to the bottom of my shoe in order to be taped down or otherwise secured.  This product solves the problem.  Like another customer, I need it only for the right foot.

Hallux Trainer Review
These have really made a difference in the enjoyment of recreational running.  I had tried a few options from the running store, but they really didn't compare to how well these work.  The finish of the product is quite nice.  Thanks to customer service for walking me through fitting and selection questions.

Hallux Insoles
I have struggled with pronounced leg length discrepancy post-hip replacement surgery, 3 years ago.  This has included metatarsaglia and now hallixus rigidus in the non-operative leg/foot.  For the last few weeks I have been using the Hallux Insoles in my very casual shoes and walking shoes.  They seem to be working in enabling me to resume a more active exercise regimen, which is to say I am trying to get back to walking 2 miles a day with out significant pain.  So far they are helping.  Though unfortunately they do not fit in my dress shoes.

Thank you
I ordered these to try to address numerous post surgery problems, second metatarsal.  These were perfect!  I am quite grateful also for the customer service that I received when I called.  Will be ordering more of these orthotics!

The Hallux trainer insoles seem to be working just fine. No pain and I managed to play 18 holes of golf without limping the last 3-4 holes!  However, I am only using the insloe for the right foot.  My left foot is working fine and I do not use it.  I would by more for several shoes I have if I could just by one insole, but at $80 a piece it is hard to justify throwing $40 away.  If I purchased 3-4 @ $45 the company would profit handsomely from reduced cost for only 1 insole.  I not certain but I suspect there are people that only want a right or left foot Hallux trainer. Maybe food for thought for the company to sell only what the customer wants!

very happy with insoles
I like this much more than the insole I had custom ordered via a prosthetic practice.  Its great for my athletic shoes and a small size would work very well with my dress shoes.

Good product, poor shipping
The inserts fit great and really help my feet.
I question this company's commitment to customer service when they offer 2 day Priority mail shipping and then take 3 days to ship.  I sell products online and I ship within one day. They should be able to at least get an item out the door in 2 days. Probably will buy my next pair on ebay.

Hallux Trainers
Aswesome.  I ordered 7 days ago, received my order in 4 days and have been using my inserts for 3 days now.  I'm mostly using them for trail running and trying to overcome symptoms of what my doc describes as functional hallux limitus.  So far, very impressed.

Fantastic for me!
I was diagnosed with Hallux limitus in my right foot about 4 months ago and I had waited to see a podiatrist until the pain was so severe that I almost couldn't walk. He recommended the carbon graphite spring plate. It helped a lot with the toe joint pain, but I found it too hard even though it was underneath my regular shoe insoles. My feet, especially the bottoms, because quite sore after walking over 20 minutes. So, I decided to give these trainer insoles a shot. Wow!! They reduce my toe joint pain to almost zero and they are also incredibly comfortable under foot. I generally walk over an hour each day in total and these keep me just about pain-free throughout. I managed to get them into slip-ons, sneakers and my oxfords (always after removing the existing insole). Some shoes are a little snug with these in, but most are just fine with plenty of space. The metatarsal pad felt a bit weird at first, but now I like the feel of it. My shoes range from mens 10 to 10.5. I bought the size 42 insoles, which are the perfect size for me. Even though the problem is only in my right foot I wear the insoles in both shoes. In short, I love these things and I just ordered 4 more pairs!

Blessed relief from debilitating hallux rigidus pain
A wonderful product.  With this insole (my left big toe's hallux rigidus is the culprit), I can go for hours with no pain, free to perform my normal range of activities, even spending weekends in my garden early in Spring when the heaviest work is done.  My reservation has nothing to do with the quality of the insole: I just wish I could buy the left foot insole only; they're (understandably) expensive, and it's even a bit sad to see such a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, i.e. the right insole,  sit on my bookshelf unused. Maybe we could start a swap- or donation-network of people who need only one.  Or maybe I can donate it to MOMA.  Also: this insole is remarkably durable: I've worn mine every day for over a year, in all weathers, switching it back and forth as needed as I switch  pairs of shoes.  In sum, expensive but worth it: blessed relief from debilitating pain.

Neuroma sufferers consider thickness...
My problem is a combination hallux limitus and Morton's neuroma.  With the rigid turf toe plate and metatarsal pad, this product appears perfectly designed to alleviate my problem, however the insole thickness limits the style of shoe I can use it with.  This insole is too thick to wear in shoes as much as one full size larger than my "normal" size, making an already expensive product essentially more expensive.

That said, the (few) pair that can accommodate have increased in comfort ten-fold. The insole only comes in full-sizes; I advise sizing down.

MYFOOTSHOP: Consider contacting the manufacturer and updating the product description for "official" half-size up or downsizing advice.  A help line call was polite but not...helpful.

Hallux Trainer Insoles
This is my first experience wearing rigid insoles.  They are comfortable, fit well and do the job.  I got them to wear primarily for hiking and activities that cause discomfort in the big toe joint.

They are worn inside shoes that lace.  I tried them in loafers and they felt a little too tight and that is understandable.  Meanwhile I have purchased a second pair.
