Overlapping toes
This deformity is characterized by one toe lying on top of an adjacent toe. The most common toe involved is the fifth toe or the second toe. This is usually caused by the imbalance in the muscle strength of the small muscles of the toes. This results in an abnormal pull of the ligaments in the toes causing them to curl. With weight bearing the deformity is increased and a folding or curling of the toes results in the formation of callous on the outside margin of the end of the toe. Tight fitting shoes can aggravate the condition.
