Re-aligning Transition Period
Correct Toes have been tested and proven by hundreds of patients to re-align the toes and straighten the big Toe, however a proper re-aligning period must be accounted for. The time period varies based on how often and how long they are worn, and how quickly the toes of the individual responds to them. Most individuals will notice wider spaces between their toes after about 4 weeks, when worn for several hours every other day. For patients that are trying to straighten the big toe from the affects of bunions, the Correct Toes need to be worn regularly for several months. Some severe toe deformities may never be completely corrected, however Correct Toes will improve the alignment of your toes when you dedicate proper time each week until you are satisfied with your new natural toe spread.
