FAQ Tab Toe Spacers

Can I wash these toe spacers?

Why do I need them?

Most modern footwear is narrow at the toes, which over time causes deformities (foot pain, bunions, overlapping toes) and other issues (balance problems, cold feet/poor circulation). Toe spacers help restore natural toe splay and healthy foot function. A good rule of thumb is to match time spent in narrow impacted footwear (heels, cleats, etc.) with time wearing toe spacers to help prevent deformation.

Why are your toes spaces for just four toes and not all five?

Aside from integrating more seamlessly with our sandals–which offer their own degree of toe separation between the first and second toe–the four toe spacer allows for more active-wear functionality. By leaving the big toe unencumbered, it can shift as needed to maintain stability and balance better during dynamic movement, as compared to a five toe spacer. Read more about our R&D process here.

Why do your toe spacers have holes in them?

The Earth Runners toe spacers feature unique voided holes between toes to ensure a squishy feel between the toes. This novel design not only allows for a comfortable and durable design– but has many additional benefits including being lighter weight, more fashionable, more secure, more elastic for easy installation, and allows for modification of the toe spacer widths– insert material into the holes to increase spacing effects!

What are the benefits of toe spacers?

Toe spacers help stretch the connective tissues of your feet–which shorten over time due to anatomically unnatural footwear–allowing them to regain their inherent mobility, shape, and range of motion.

What is your toe spacer return policy?
