Most cases of hammertoe can be prevented by wearing shoes that fit properly and give the toes plenty of room. Some recommended guidelines include:
Avoid shoes with pointed or narrow toes.
Avoid shoes that are too tight or short.
Avoid high-heeled shoes, which can force the toes forward.
If the shoes hurt, don't wear them.
Choose shoes with wide or boxy toes.
Choose shoes that are a half-inch longer than your longest toe....
