Yoga toes are a toe separation device that are somewhat similar in design to the foam toe separators that are used when you get a pedicure. Instead of using foam for construction, yoga toes are made of plastic and gel, and can be worn while you’re relaxing, watching TV, or just putting your feet up at the end of the day. Manufacturers of these devices claim that the separation of the toes is extremely healthy for the feet and can relieve the pain in the balls of the feet and in the toes that is caused by wearing cramped shoes.

There’s little doubt that yoga toes, in all their forms, have become a sensation in the 2000s. The several companies that sell them post hundreds of positive, anecdotal reviews of their product. It can make sense that a good stretch of the toes at the end of each day might promote better foot comfort. What is questionable is how long this stretch will continue to be effective if people persist in wearing shoes that cramp the toes each day.

Manufacturers of yoga toes also claim that they can eliminate bunions, calluses, and a variety of other foot conditions. The consumer does need warning that medical evidence regarding these devices is scanty. They may not eliminate these conditions, but it might be worth trying them, particularly if your only option left is surgery to relieve these conditions.

Some manufacturers do offer 90-day money back guarantees on their products, and it might be worthwhile to purchase yoga toes that include a guarantee. Other companies specifically do not offer this guarantee, and these companies should probably be avoided. The original yoga toes are called YogaToes®, and are manufactured by Yoga Pro™. Other companies do manufacture similar products, and both the registered and unregistered versions can be found on the Internet.

Following this trend of yoga toes foot separation devices, you can also find sandals with toe separators. These feature thongs between each of the toes to keep them separated. Since a perfect yoga standing position requires the person to stretch the toes out, they may also be called yoga-training sandals. You can find them in many Internet yoga stores and in sports stores that sell yoga clothing and supplies.

Though there is little scientific evidence that any form of yoga toes do what they claim, it’s hard to find negative reviews of these products. Customer testimonials on a site selling the product must be taken with a grain of salt, since most sites selling a product will only feature the most flattering attestations to the product’s value. Nevertheless, yoga is certainly proven as helpful exercise, with many benefits to the body. Therefore, a toe-stretching device that provides some of the benefits of yoga may be of use to people suffering from foot or toe pain.

I found the best and list expensive toe separator and toe massager online.

Unlike yoga toes which require time to get used to, snoosy instantly stimulates and pampers my toes. I even sleep with snoosy which is so wonderful.

Check the clearance section on Yogapro. They have discontinued colors at about half the cost!

Buy Healthytoes. They are so much cheaper and of high quality BPA free gel.

i got the pedi-egg version for about $15, they've definitely helped. i'm a runner with long toes that can curl up underneath each other a little bit, creating some hammer toe-looking situations. these have really made a huge difference. i don't get nearly the amount of little blisters and callouses in between and on my toes.

Do not use yoga toes after foot surgery. I tried yoga toes a year after my surgery on bunion and hammertoes. The surgery was fine but I thought it would be nice to have the good feeling that I read about regarding yoga toes. I actually screwed up the surgical results using yoga toes. The toes are now going back to their former position. Ask your doctor first.

I like yoga toes a lot.

I did a search for toe massagers and found a simple product called snoosy that does wonders for my toes and helps me to fall asleep.

Yoga toes is still my favorite when I need to separate my toes after wearing pointed shoes.

Check out SmartToes Toe Stretchers. They're less expensive, more comfortable and easier to put on than Yoga Toes, I saw a discount code MB10 for 10% off on the Oprah board.

It's true! YogaToes® work wonders for alleviating foot pain and promoting relaxation.

but please beware of imitations (knock offs)! Only Patented YogaToes® are designed and quality manufactured in the USA using a specialized medical grade gel. They are available in several sizes, carefully designed to ensure a safe, proper fit. YogaToes are a product of YogaPro, an American company est.1989 that strives to deliver the best in personal service and product innovation and they offer you a no risk, lifetime money back guarantee as well as a lifetime replacement guarantee.

I loved my Mother dearly, but she gave me awful feet. I have bunions, a couple of hammer toes and a few slightly overlapping each other. Yucky!!! I have orthotics and my foot doctor has talked to me about getting rid of the bunions, but I'd be laid up too long for someone as active as I am. I have been using yoga toes for only 2 weeks. I am very impressed by what it's done. One bunion is noticeably better, the hammer toe doesn't stick up as much and the overlapping is much better.

I use them either 15 minutes twice a day or 45 minutes once depending on my day. I am excited about the results. I will post back later if I feel it is continuing success.

A word of advice, Yoga Toes are advertised in most women's magazines and almost all ads give you a discount code that will knock $15 off the price!

By anon7484 — On Jan 27, 2008

They sound wonderful, but they are outrageously expensive. I'll have to wait until they go down in price.

By anon4882 — On Nov 05, 2007

why so expensive?
