Anyone tried fitting with overlapping toes?

I want to order a pair but I'm concerned about my overlapping toe. My right pinky sticks up and lays on top of the next toe. I know some would say that it would be good to separate the toes but seeing as I was born with it that way 23 years ago, I think it would be mighty uncomfortable. I wonder if the 4th toe pocket can accommodate 2 toes? or are the pockets flexible enough to allow my funny toe to stick up. Anyone else with this problem? Specific, I know.



  • My pinkies were in a similar situation; they never touched the ground and stayed on top of the other toe quite a bit... the Vibrams felt fine though, and they have moved off the other toe quite a bit.
  • It's probably best if you try a pair for yourself. I don't recall this type of question being asked of overlapping toes, so congrats for originality.  :)

    But to answer your other question, you can put both pinky and 4th toe in the 4th toe pocket without being uncomfortable. I sometimes do it without noticing a difference if my pinky toe is in its pocket or not.
  • I stand on a 2x2 square of concrete for 10 hours a day, 5 days a week.... my feet hurt so bad I couldn't even rub them. Upon getting out of bed, I would have to grab dressers and hug the walls because it was too painful to stand up and put even minimal pressure on them. I've been through chiropractic care, acupressure, custom orthotics and more gadgets than I care to mention, nothing ever worked. So I admit, I was very sceptical about spending so much money on a pair of shoes, but I finally gave in......and I am soooooo glad that I did!! I've been wearing my Kinetics for 2 months solid and I cannot believe the difference! My feet and legs no longer ache throughout the night, and I can jump out of bed with both feet. I'm even able to exercise again. These shoes are miraculous, to say the least! I loved them so much, I bought a pair of the Orthofeet just for kickin around in. I also got a pair of your flip flops for my vacation in the Keys. Wearing these shoes is like walking on pillows I honestly can't thank you enough. I highly recommend these shoes to anyone that offers from any form of foot is too short to not live it to the fullest!
  • My daughter even ordered a pair for her clinical training for her medical program as she knew she’d be on her feet a lot. They are super comfy and definitely worth every penny that I payed. Love Orthofeet and I recommend them whenever someone mentions having heel pain. Told all my co-workers about them. Simply LOVE them and will defiantly be buying more!
