Why do I get Big Toe Holes in my fabric trainers / footwear?

Updated: Mar 5, 2022

If you get the dreaded big toe holes in your fabric trainers / footwear it means you are part of an exclusive club.

Research shows that only 1 in 5 people suffer with the condition that causes big toe holes - 'hyperextension of the distal phalanx'.

In layman's terms, it means that every time you take a step your big toe lifts. The lifting causes the end of the big toe to rub against the mesh / fabric above the big toe area. Eventually, this movement causes a hole to be created.

It appears that people suffer to a greater or lesser extent. In some cases it can be both toes that cause holes and for many others it is one toe that causes the holes. Either way the end result is the premature demise of your fabric trainers / footwear.

However, all is not lost. Trainer Armour Big Toe Hole Preventer patches can solve the problem.
