Toe spacers help correct toes, but what are they really doing for your foot health?

If you think about it, most things are devices. From the glass you drink your wine from to the dog bowl filled with Christmas carrots, as long as it’s a physical thing with a function, you could say it’s a device. Some. however, are a little less than functional – the ornamental tray, the 3D tick on your shoes, the photo frame. But before you investigate how many useless things you have lying around, let’s think about things that are useful.

In the world of fitness, devices aren’t always just useful – they can be game-changing. Let’s take today’s topic as an example. Toe spacers can have a dramatic effect on your running form, ability and physical health (sound more than useful?), but we should both learn what they actually are before getting too excited.

Oh, right, you’re probably here because you already know, so let’s expand on that knowledge to give even more pep to your step, and help you run risk-free of injury and with improvements you’ve probably been looking for.
