: : My fifth toes are gradually overlapping my fourth toes. I was born with normally positioned toes but in my teens my little toes began to ride up onto my fourth toes if my feet were in certain positions. This started with my right foot and soon followed with my left one. This is gradually gotten more intense to where walking or even shifting my weight while standing will cause my little toes to ride up. I am 28 years old now and neither little toe touches the ground anymore. Both, especially my right one, are noticeibly moving up on to my fourth toes. Does anyone else have toes like this or know what would cause this?
: I have the same thing as you, but only on my right foot. Like you I wasn't born with it but it started I think when I was about 10 and I'm now 19. Its quite bad now and I have to be careful with buying shoes. Also people sometimes stare at it, like when I'm on the beach. i was born with an overlapping fith toe on my left foot. it has gradually gotten worse over the years. i am now 37 and it overlaps the fourth toe so far that the tip of my little toe actually touches my third toe! you can't even see my little toe from the bottom side of my foot. i too was embarrassed for years and would not go barefoot, i finally got tired of hiding it and now i even wear sandals in public an find that nobody hardly even notices it. go barefoot and forget about it!
