How Can New Balance Shoes Help Morton's Neuroma?

By: New Balance Medical Minute

What is Morton's Neuroma?

A neuroma is a noncancerous (benign) growth/thickening of nerve tissue that can develop in various parts of your body. Morton's neuroma occurs in a nerve (that becomes pinched) in the foot, often between your third and fourth toes. The incidence of Morton's neuroma is 8 to 10 times greater in women than in men.

What are the symptoms?

Sharp or shooting pain, burning, tingling, or numbness on the top of the forefoot in the web spaces behind the toes, usually the third or fourth web space, symptoms may last days or weeks. Pain that increases when wearing shoes or pressing on the area.


Injury, tight/restrictive shoes, improperly fitted shoes, high-heeled shoes, abnormal foot biomechanics.


While massages can provide temporary relief, the best way to treat Morton's Neuroma is to wear properly fitted shoes with wide toe-box, arch supports and/or metatarsal pads. Avoid shoes with high heels. Most of our Motion Control running style, those ending in MC, are appropriate for Morton's Neuroma and overpronators, as well as stability models with large toe-boxes.
