Thread: Shoes for hallux rigidus

    Shoes for hallux rigidus

    Wondering if anyone has any advice - I've got arthritis in my big toe, which isn't that bad, but needs stiff shoes to reduce movement at the joint (particularly when climbing).

    Anyone got any fell/trail shoe recommendations that are on the stiffer side - I appreciate that this means giving up a lot of 'feel', but needs must...

    I found more miles quite rigid (they don't last long, but they are pleasingly cheap). Inov-8s say they're designed to flex, so not them.

    If you can find a pair, then Mizuno Wave Harriers would do the trick.

    Unfortunately they don't make them anymore
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    After the success of road shoes with carbon/nylon plates in the midsole, then some trail shoes with a plate have started to appear - the plate will make the forefoot pretty rigid.
    The main ones I can think of at the moment are the North Face Vectiv series, but there may be others.
