A mallet or hammer toe results in a curved toe that points down rather than outward.

Like many foot conditions, mallet toe can be the result of genetics, footwear that doesn’t fit right, or other foot problems like high arches or bunions.

Arthritis or a toe injury may also be the cause of a mallet toe.

This condition may be painful when walking or stretching your foot, and you may not be able to wiggle your toe.

Wearing shoes that are the right fit and using OTC foot cushions and pads may help your symptoms.
