I don't think it matters unless it bothers you. For me, my 2nd toe was longer than my other toes, so my left foot needed a larger shoe than the right foot. But since it didn't hurt, I didn't do surgery until I had another issue with that foot that needed surgery; then I did the hammertoe surgery. BUT, the Dr said in order to do the hammertoe, he had to do a bunionectomy which is LONG 12 week recovery. Check with a podiatrist, including asking about recovery time.

can't see the pic since it was taken down, but I have hammer toes and they don't bother me one bit so there's no sense in worrying about them.
