What causes toe deformities?

Small toe deformities can be the result of injuries to the toes and neighbouring tissue and tendons caused by:

  • Ill-fitting shoes pushing the toes upwards
  • A bunion on the big toe causing more weight to be put on the small toes
  • Congenital nerve disorders (conditions you are born with), such as Charcot Marie Tooth disease
