Do your shoes cause Morton’s Neuroma?

Reviewed by Janet D. Pearl, MD, MSc

Certain shoes are more frequently implicated as a cause of Morton’s neuroma. These include: high heels; tight shoes with a narrow-toe; or, shoes with a worn-out base. These type of shoes affect the balance of the foot by increasing the slope of the foot which forces the toes to directly bear the body weight.
