Best Asics for Morton’s Neuroma

Minute Read


Posted 2 weeks ago


by James McCormack

Morton’s Neuroma is a painful condition that affects the forefoot. It is often described as feeling like there is a stone in the shoe. This painful sensation is caused by a build-up of tissue around the nerve of that runs between the bones of the feet towards the toes. Specifically, it affects the space between the 3rd and 4th toes. There are other neuromas that can occur between the other toes that go by other names. Finding the correct pain of well-fitting shoes can significantly improve the pain associated with Morton’s Neuroma.

Best Asics Shoes for Morton’s Neuroma 

The best shoes for Morton’s Neuroma will have a low heel-to-toe drop to keep weight off the forefoot, a well-cushioned sole to absorb the impact of landing, and a wide toe box to prevent compressing the metatarsal bones together and further aggravating the neuroma. With our experience, we recommend the best Asics shoes for Morton’s Neuroma are the Gel Kayano 30 for mild symptoms, the Asics GT-2000 11 for moderate symptoms, and the Asics Gel-Nimbus 11 for severe symptoms. 

Best Asics for Mild Morton’s Neuroma

We recommend the Asics Gel Kayano 30 as the best shoe for mild Morton’s Neuroma.
The Asics Gel Kayano 30 is a well-cushioned, neutral shoe. As it is available in normal, wide and extra wide sizes you will find a good fit that provides a roomy toe box.
The shoe has a 10mm heel-to-toe drop with the Asics PureGEL technology across the sole and FF BLAST technology at the rear foot. Both reduce impact and provide good cushioning for the foot.

Best Asics for Moderate Morton’s Neuroma

We recommend the Asics GT-2000 11 as the best shoe for moderate Morton’s Neuroma.
The Asics GT-2000 11 is a well-cushioned, stability shoe with 8mm heel-to-toe drop.
As it is available in normal and wide fit, you should find a fit that suits you to give you ample space in the toe box.
It uses the Asics FF BLAST technology for lightweight and responsive cushioning. And
LITETRUSS technology, positioned on the inside of the midsole to improve stability.

Best Asics for Severe Morton’s Neuroma

We recommend the Asics Gel-Nimbus 11 in a wide or extra-wide model for severe Morton’s Neuroma.
The Asics Gel-Nimbus 11 is a maximum cushioned, neutral shoe with an 8mm drop from heel-to-toe. With the two wider models as options, you are able to find a perfect fit to prevent compressing the toe box.
It has the Asics FF BLAST technology to provide good cushioning across the sole of the shoe and PureGEL technology at the heel for shock absorption of landing and for smooth transitions from rear to forefoot.
