Yoga toes are toe separation devices which actually stretch and improve your foot strength. They are similar in design to foam toe separators used when you get a pedicure, but they provide much more support and separation to the toes, and are also easier to care for since they are made of a gel like substance. Yoga Toes(R) can benefit almost anyone that may be suffering from foot (or toe) pain caused by ill fitting shoes, or from spending way too much time on their feet. If you work and/or participate in activities that stress your toes/legs such as: tennis, aerobics, running, golf or dancing, than you really should consider getting a pair of these great little ‘feet pain’ relievers. Yoga toes may also provide help for senior citizens and small children. They increase blood circulation to the feet and create relief of pain after long periods of standing.
Yoga Toes Benefits – Bunions, Hammer Toes and Varicose Veins
Yoga Toes have been reported to really help with increasing your foot strength, and the flexibility of your toes and ankles. As the circulation in your legs stretches your Achilles tendons and your leg muscles you stand a great chance of finding improvement for the parts of your legs and toes that are aching. As your posture alignment changes and corrects itself, watch for the possible relief of bunions, varicose veins, and even those crazy hammer toes too.

This makes them quick and easy to take care of. Yoga Toes make for perfect traveling too. Just throw a pair of the toes into your luggage for a perfect companion. When you need them, they will comfort your sore feet after a long day of hiking, walking, or just plain sightseeing.

How To Wear and Care for your Yoga Toes
Yoga toes and toe stretchers are worn snugly at the base of your toes as a passive way to exercise and stretch the feet – but keep in mind that you cannot wear them throughout the day while you have shoes on. You will need to set aside some time to wear your toes, or do as one person I heard from did, wore them at night while they slept with large socks over their feet. You can also consider wearing Yoga Toes when you nap. Their design is easy for putting off and on, and since they are made of a special medical-grade gel compound which is completely odor-free, you don’t have to do much to care for them other than a brief hand wash, or rinse under the faucet once in a while. Most women will find that they wear the small size while most men will probably require medium.
