Shoe Recommendations:

Since the second toe is usually the longest, shoes should chosen accordingly with respect to this length. This foot has an overall rectangular shape, so it’s best to avoid a tapered toe or more fitted shoes that pressure the toes. Rounded and wide toecaps that respect the shape of the longest toe(s) are better choices.
