What’s great about these wedges is that they give you the height (for fashion) but they don’t give you the excessive ‘foot tilt’ forward, which makes for more comfortable wear and puts less strain on the joints, muscles, tendons as well as the ball of the foot. Each of these wedges has strapping of the forefoot, midfoot and rearfoot, which offers more biomechanical control and therefore allows for more comfort, less mechanical strain and less chance of injury. 

These Wedges Should Be Comfortable For Patients With:
*Mild to Moderate Hammertoes
*Mild to Moderate Bunions
*Mild to Moderate Tailor’s Bunions
*Mild Metatarsalgia
*Mild Hallux Limitus (Limited Range of Motion of the 1st Toe Joint)
*Mild Osteoarthritis
*Mild Capsulitis
*Mild Morton’s Neuroma
*Mild Heel Pain
*Mild Achilles Tendonitis
*Mild Tendonitis   
*Mild Over-Pronation 
*Dorsal Exostosis (Bone Spur on Top of Midfoot area)
These Shoes Are NOT Recommended For Patients With:
*Moderate to Severe Hallux Limitus (Limited Range of Motion of the 1st Toe Joint) 
*Hallux Rigidus
*Moderate to Severe Osteoarthritis
*Moderate to Severe Degenerative Joint Disease
*Rheumatoid Arthritis
*Peripheral Neuropathy (Nerve Damage)
*Peripheral Arterial Disease (Poor Circulation)
*Weak Legs
*Balance Issues
*Drop Foot
*Charcot Foot
*History of Ulcerations 
*Hypermobility / Ligament Laxity
*Moderate to Severe Over-Pronation
I hope this was helpful!
