When I went to Dartmoor in October, I had a reoccurrence of my Morton’s Neuroma issue. MN is an inflammation between the third and fourth metatarsals. In bad cases in can be very painful. In my case, it’s relatively mild. Rather than pain, it’s a bit like getting an electric shock. One way to alleviate it is to separate your toes. On the walk I used some Superdrug gel toe protectors. I searched for a better solution and found these on Amazon. I’ve been wearing them for a couple of weeks and they seem to be working. They are more comfortable than the toe protectors and stay in place. They are soft and easy to rinse. I’m not saying they will work for everyone but they seem to be working for me. Not expensive either.

Hi Robin, you could also try Blis-Toes – Reusable Toe Comfort Sleeves – 2 Large + 2 Regular https://amzn.eu/d/7ic7us7 or for heel protection Blis-Sox Blister Prevention Socks https://amzn.eu/d/73Dv8QY.
Thanks. Superdrug gel toe protectors are similar. Fortunately I don’t have problems with my heels. The toe separators are the best thing I’ve used so far. One issue with toe protectors is they can soften your toe nails with extended use.
…plus they make it easier to paint your nails! What about toe socks – would they also work ?
I tried Injinji socks and didn’t get on with them. I can see why people like them but they just didn’t suit me.
