    thought i had gout as a rivetting post :rolleyes: i put on a wile ago explained but i am pretty sure i got ladder toe
    ladder toe has been caused by tight fitting trainers with no give when on toes wile standing and climbing ladders
    instead of using full foot i have been on my toes in hard trainers with little give
    swapped my trainers and changed my ladder etiqette with far less tippy toes and my toe has been a lot less sore and swollen :thumbsup:
    this is not to be confused with camel toe which i dont have or get , thought i would mention that:rolleyes:

    Wear theses type of boots.
    Very comfortable and when climbing ladders not that I do much anymore.
    Easy on the feet.

    im wearing v light trainers as i go on my toes even when try not to and the heavier trainer was causing me grief
    if your boots are comfy and safe should be good as Smurf says he uses, the heel is a safer option than trainers prevents your foot slipping into the ladder
    have to get of my toes and use the healed option
