I bet you didn’t know this about new shoes

Have you ever tried to put on shoes that are too tight?

You know when you’re out shopping for new shoes. You see a pair that you like. The colors of the shoes match the colors of the rest of your clothes. It’s a perfect fit. Just the right pair of shoes that you’ve been looking for.

You check the price tag. ‘30% off TODAY ONLY!’

That’s all you need to know.

You’re getting these shoes.

So, you try them on.

And of course, they’re too tight.

Because of the manufacturer, all the shoes are either too tight or too big. Or you may have oddly shaped feet. Whatever. The point is that you desperately crave these shoes. You have to get them. There’s no other shoes that possibly can match the rest of your clothes. So you give in. You get the pair that’s just a little too small. This means that your feet will likely get stuffed a bit in the front of the shoe.

Walking will be a bit challenging, but so what?

After all, we’re talking about your looks here. How you present yourself to the world. Because looks actually matter.

And it’s also much better to at least have the shoe sitting tight on instead of having it sling back and forth so that the heel of the shoe rubs the skin your heel, and gradually peels it off.

Ever had those wounds? They seriously hurt.

A lot.

Now I don’t know about you, but whenever I’ve had this happening to me, I usually haven’t been able to walk more than a couple of hundred feet (no pun intended) before the pain sets in. It’s like your toes are being rearranged down there. Like they’re crooked. Almost like your big toe is being bent underneath one or several of the adjacent toes.

And did I say it hurts a lot?

Also when you take off your shoes?

I’m sure you already know what I’m talking about. If you’re like most people, you’ve probably had this happening to you several times. Especially if you’re a woman and you’re wearing high heels. Obviously, since I’m a man I cannot comment on that other than it looks uncomfortable, to say the least.


Certain chronic disorders lead to rearranged toes. Some weird stuff is going on the feet, and it causes the toe bones to actually grow in a different direction. The toes literally get entangled into each other. The worst example that I saw was a guy’s feet that had were so misshaped that both of his big toes had grown sideways into two and even three of his other toes. In other words, both of his big toes literally grew laterally.

It was gross to see.

Looked horrible.

And quite frankly looked like something you’d see in a horror movie.

Now, CBD oil cannot cure such problematic conditions. If it could, we’d have a revolution in the medical market.

But what CBD oil potentially can do is to relieve the pain that’s associated with such disorders.

Now, just to be clear here: there is no guarantee that you’ll be pain free. But then again, there is no guarantee to life either.

So in my case, if I’d been suffering from such a disorder I’d get myself some CBD oil in a heartbeat.

But I’m not you and you’re not me.

So, best make your own decisions.

But, I’ll just say the following: With CBD oil you at least won’t have to go beg the doctor for a prescription.

That’s got to be worth something, too.
