It's best to fit Big Toe Hole Preventer Patches in new trainers to prevent the holes but they can also be used to repair a hole when it first becomes visible.
Each pack contains two self-adhesive patches, a left foot applicator and a right foot applicator.
The Big Toe Hole Preventer is a patented product that is designed and manufactured in the UK.
The condition that causes big toe holes is called hyperextension of the distal phalanx. In layman’s terms it means that every time you take a step your big toe lifts at the end. Every time your big toe lifts it rubs against the inside of your trainers, which eventually leads to a hole appearing.
Studies have shown that as many as 1 in 5 people suffer with this condition. Many people are not aware that it is a medical condition and will blame the quality of their trainers, long toe nails or having the wrong size footwear.
Why do I need it? Don’t replace expensive trainers due to big toe holes, fit Big Toe Hole Preventer patches in new trainers to prevent the holes appearing.
Throwing away a pair of comfortable shoes just because a hole has appeared, especially when the rest of the shoe isn’t showing any signs of wear, is just annoying and costly. Fitting Big Toe Hole Preventer patches in new, or nearly new, shoes or trainers extends the life of the footwear you enjoy wearing, which is good for your pocket and good for the planet.
