Great for preventing a corn
Now that I'm older, I'm starting to get all sorts of problems I never even thought about before! One of them was a lump I started to notice on the knuckle of a toe. The knuckle was showing signs arthritis, and the skin above the bump was starting to dry out and crust over. I remember seeing that on my mother's toes when I was a kid. I didn't know what to do, but I knew I didn't want a corn! So, I starting looking for things to prevent corns.
I saw the things my mom had used 50+ years ago, and thought that they must have come up with something better. I tried lots of home remedies, creams, lotions and bandaging, before I discovered these silicone covers. I had my doubts, but I decided to try them.
They worked FAR better than I anticipated. I popped one over that toe whenever I was going to be wearing shoes to prevent rubbing. In a short amount of time, I noticed, first, that the skin was much better. No more dry hard skin on the knuckle, but the round raised area was still there. After another week or so, I noticed that that circle of skin was also less prominent! These silicone covers not only prevented the rubbing, but moistened the skin, too.
I tried putting two of them next to one another and that was not working. When I had one on my big toe and one on the toe next to it, the one on the big toe always tore. But, just using one works great.
Does it work for the other ailments in the toes? I don't know. I just know that it worked for my problem. But, with the success of using them on my toe to prevent the corn, I would definitely try them for other problems.
They are easy to keep clean, too. Take it off, turn in inside out and wash with soap and water. Let it dry and it's ready to use again.
Definitely worth a try!
I have some truly UGLY feet, so I apologize for the pix.
So far so good
I had surgery on my toe some time ago and wasn't able to wear some very nice boots that I wanted. So, I looked into trying to find some sort of support for my toe, and couldn't find anything to give me that comfort I needed until Now! I'm so excited to say that I can finally fit my boots.
The gel in these ZenToe protectors are so soothing and supporive.
Not only are they comfortable but they also bring relief to my aching toe. However, I would like to see them in a longer form that will cover the bunions in the feet as well. Being that they are so comfy, I think they would be good for corns, bunions, etc. I would recommend. Cheers!
Zen toes toe protectors
These came in a size large and fit my big toes just right but I had to cut the bottom to fit my pinkie toe. I recently got a job where I have to wear steel toed boots and these help so much. They are soft and gel like and provide cushion for my toes as well as protection. I did end up putting a band aid at the bottom of mine to keep them in place because I do a lot of walking and i wanted to be sure they stayed in place.
Great Toe Protectors
I got these to protect my big toe after having an in-grown toenail that needed part of the nail removed. I wanted something to protect it from sand and water at a friends beach house. These worked really well, kept my toe clean and dry. I was worried the large might be too big, as I have small feet and toes, but the large fit my big toe perfectly and was very stretchy so I can see it would fit bigger toes too. I didn't need to trim the bottom and it kept my toe protected. These worked perfect for what I wanted them for.
I had tried other methods of keeping my toe from rubbing and getting irritated. This is the only thing that works. Great Definitely would purchase again. I saved me a doctor appointment fee. Won't even look bad with sandals this summer.
Great quality soft and stretchy silicone like material. Very comfortable
Best item for sore toes especially if you are losing a toe nail
Awesome great for the thumbs also

I had a problem my toe next to my big toe on my left foot was the one that had an ingrown toenail on it and the toe cap would not fit. What was I to do? I decided that I would put it on my big toe because it seemed to me that the one with the ingrown nail was rubbing up against the nail of the big toe. Well I put it on the big toe and it helped the toe next to it with the problem. I am so thankful.
Wont stay on.
I was a little disappointed in this product. I have crooked toes that are constantly getting sore from rubbing and friction. So I bought these thinking they would help but after wearing one for less than 2 hrs. With sandals it had come off without my knowing it! Maybe they work better with socks and shoes. Wont be buying again.
Soft cushion for corns
Super soft and easy to apply..gentle on toes..however toe curls so the zen works it's way down toe
very comfortable. priced reasonably
This item is okay but it was not what I expected. It will not stay on if you put your feet under the covers on the bed. No other comments.
they fit well and cover the toes
Way too big and Im a size 10 womens shoe
One size fits most if you are a giant. The ones i received are huge. I have big feet. Size 10 womens shoe and due to a big toe amputation I wanted then to put on my second toe which takes a beating. They are massively huge. Wont stay on. Even to big and long for my other big toe. I was disappointed. Is it possibl to get a smaller size?
Very comfortable and reusable. Perfect for bunion reliefe.
These are really great! I have tried several things but so far these are the best.
I didn't give the product a 5 because altho it feels good, it didn't really help with pain in my toe while wearing shoes. The side of my big toe gets very hard and hurtful when wearing shoes and standing for a while. I've tried wrapping my toe and bandaging it, but nothing really helped so I was very excited about these. But it really didn't seem to make much difference.
They are comfy and I still wear them after taking shoes off. I've tried wearing them to bed, but they get stuck on sheets if you move around a lot.
From what I've read, they're very helpful for most people and I wish they were for me. But with shoes, didn't notice a relief.
I got these for my daughter and I because we get ingrown toenails all the time. Let's just say my daughter who is 12 loves them. She said that it helps with the pain when she wears her shoes. She also said that it helps when she gets her toes stepped on. I used it once and it felt great. They are soft and you don't even remember that it's on.
ZEN GEL TOE CAP PROTECTOR
These caps work fairly well. I have been using them for a missing toe nail. They go on easily with no discomfort and irritation thru out the day. Keeps the toe dry when showering to help healing and the new toe nail to grow back. The caps also keep your socks or shoes from rubbing the new growth off and the discomfort of a raw toe being rubbed every time you take a step. Cushions better than a band aid and has no problems coming loose or sticking to the new growth. Also provides protection when going bare footed
