How to Wear Toe Separators?
Wearing toe separators is a very simple task if you know the proper way. There are a lot of types of toe separators in the market. But among them, the most common are Yoga Toes and correct toes.
For your better understanding, I will be explaining the wearing technique of these two most common and popular toe separators.
Yoga Toes: This toe separator is very popular and easy to wear. This one has one side opened and the other supporting your feet. (You can see in the image)
To wear these toe separators what you have to do is put your toes inside the gaps gently. You can figure out which toe is supposed to be filling which space of the toe separator by measuring each gap. Well, it’s obvious!
As the toe separators are made with gel or silicon so the separators are flexible enough to be moved or stretched. So if you find it a little tough to insert your toes inside the gaps, gently pull the separators horizontally and insert your toes.
Correct Toes: This toe separator is also a popular toe separator. Both sides of this toe separator are closed. There are a lot of other types of toe separator that has almost the same shape and are closed on both sides.
So I’m just gonna tell you how to wear this one so that you can figure out how to wear the other identitical types as well.
First, take a quick look at the image to be clear about the shape of this toe separator.
While wearing a toe separator like Correct Toes, there is one thing where you need to concentrate on the most, its shape.
As you can see in the picture, the toe separator is not straight, it is a bit rounded inside. Then again, one side is smooth and the other side is curvy like waves.
Many users put the curvy side towards the ankle, which is wrong. You have to do the opposite. You have to put the smooth, concave side towards the ankle. And the curvy side on the opposite of the ankle.
Well if you observe the picture again, you can see that the convex side looks identical to the curves of your toes. So now looking for which side goes to which side is easy I hope.
However, when you put on toe separators like Correct Toes, they might feel a little tight in the beginning when you try to wear them. But don’t worry, it gets easy after a few uses. In the cases of tightness, you can massage a little oil or lotion to lubricate your toes and wear them effortlessly.
