These flat glass fiber composite inserts limit the range of motion in the great toe, relieving pain in the big toe joint by providing a Morton's extension that extends under the big toe. The flat fiberglass Turf Toe Plates are a stiff orthotic insert designed to limit the range of motion of your big toe, while allowing your smaller toes free range of motion.
The Turf Toe Plates -Flat Glass Fiber are an easy fit for most shoes. They are made of glass webbing combined with an acrylic polymer, which allows this material to maintain its density and integrity.
The rigid plate can be worn under the insert that comes with your shoe or used in conjunction with an over-the-counter shoe insole or prescription orthotic. The Turf Toe Plates -Flat Glass Fiber are flat with no contoured arch. It is important to wear your plate in a shoe that does not have a very flexible sole, as the lack of rigidity will put stress on your plate when you flex your foot. 1 pair/pkg.

Sizing: We strongly suggest that you use length rather than shoe size as the determining factor in deciding which size plate to purchase. The best sizing method is to measure your foot on a piece of paper. Once the length of your foot is measured, choose a plate that is slightly shorter than your foot. The goal is to have the Morton's extension piece reach between the base of the toenail and the tip of your big toe.
For example, if your foot measures 10", the 39/40 (9 1/4") will fit perfectly. When the heel of the plate sits snugly into the back of your shoe, the Morton's extension reaches just short of the tip of your great toe.
Dimensions: Medium width only, 1/8" thick. See individual sizes for length, and the Measurements tab for detailed dimensions.
Turf Toe Plates - Flat Glass Fiber may be modified with a heat gun, but once modified, they cannot be returned for a refund or exchange.
Indications: The Turf Toe Plates - Flat Glass Fiber are used in the treatment of turf toe, hallux limitus, hallux rigidus, arthritis, and great toe fractures.
Foot Care Tip! What are the differences between all of the carbon fiber/graphite plate products sold at Myfootshop.com?
These four carbon fiber inserts are best used for hallux limitus, hallux rigidus, and turf toe.
- Molded Turf Toe Plates are thin, 3/4-length, carbon graphite arch supports, with a molded arch and Morton's extension.
- Flat Turf Toe Plates are similar to the molded plates, but are completely flat, with a Morton's extension. Flat Turf Toe Plates come in only one size.
- Hallux Trainer Inserts are a full-length, finished carbon graphite insert with Morton's extension that has the same indications as turf toe plates.
- Spring Plates are ultra-thin, full-length arch supports. A toe spring creates a forefoot rocker, off-loading forefoot pain. Spring Plates are indicated for metatarsal fractures, forefoot capsulitis, forefoot bursitis, and Freiberg's infraction. Spring Plates may also be used to treat hallux limitus and hallux rigidus.
Additional carbon fiber inserts:
Disclaimer - Shoe designs (called the shoe last) vary so much that matching insoles and shoes is never a precise science. Placing a rigid insert (Spring Plate, Molded Turf Toe Plate, Flat Turf Toe Plate, Flat Carbon Fiber Plate) into your shoe may cause wear. The rigidity of these carbon fiber inserts may damage the softer cloth shoe last. Myfootshop.com is not responsible for any damage to your shoes that may be caused by the use of these products.
Return Policy: Defective Insoles & Arch Supports may be returned for replacement or credit up to 6 months from the date of purchase. Here's a link to our return policies and procedures.
