Wish there was a thick cushion versionLove the padding for steel toe. Wish there was a thick cushion. Many required to use safety shoes also stand all day. How about it Thorlo?
I love the unique colors and designsI like the fit and wicking. There is just enough padding for my toes while playing tennis.
Sesamoiditis is an inflammation of the sesamoid bones on the bottom of the foot just behind the big toe joint. Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) made with proprietary THOR-LON acrylic yarn are designed to protect and cushion the weight-bearing areas of the feet (the forefoot and the heel). The anatomically designed engineered padding (thicker in the ball and heel and thinner in the arch area) reduces pressures and cushions the feet against the effects of impact and friction forces, thereby facilitating healing.
The padding in Thorlos CTPS products has been clinically shown to reduce:
Beyond protecting the area with padding like that found in Thorlos CTPS, management of sesamoiditis and/or turf toe injuries usually involves a combination of the following physician-prescribed measures:
The sesamoids are two pea-shaped bones under the first metatarsal head (bone in the foot) behind the big toe joint. Most bones in the human body are connected to each other at joints; but the sesamoids are not connected to any other bone. Instead, they are connected to tendons. The sesamoids act like “pulleys” by providing a smooth surface over which the tendons move. This action enhances the tendons’ ability to convey muscle forces in walking and running. When the tendons in which the sesamoids are embedded become irritated or inflamed, the condition is called “sesamoiditis” (which is a form of tendinitis). This condition usually is characterized by a dull, persistent pain below the big toe joint. The pain comes and goes, and can vary with different shoes and activities.
Closely related to this condition is an injury of the soft tissue around the big toe joint called “turf toe.” The injury happens when the big toe joint is extended beyond its normal range of movement, causing sharp pain and swelling. It affects the entire toe joint and limits the motion of the toe.
For more information on these and other foot conditions, visit the Institute for Preventive Foot Health’s website.
The most common cause is overuse, especially from activities involving high levels of pressure on the ball of the foot – for example, running, football, golf, dancing, and court sports such as tennis, basketball, and volleyball. Other causes include:
