    Hello and thank you for your question. I’d really need to know exactly where you are experiencing your pain. To have pain in the nail is different than the joint which is then different from the side or bottom of the toe. If you do have nerve pain or injury then that is typically addressed different than a biomechanical issue such as a bunion. Supportive footwear will not do anything for nerve-related pain or discomfort. If you can provide additional information that would greatly help me.
