Particularly, women wear shoes that are narrow and have sharp tips, high heels, hosiery shoes, small shoes, and so on. As a result, the toes are deformed so that the toes are deformed severely. As the toe bends from the outside to the inside, a three-dimensional deformation occurs, with the deformation of the second toe or the toe of the second toe.

This phenomenon is referred to as a hallux valgus medically, and the hallux valgus is caused by the inflammation and pain in the protruding part inside the first metatarsal toe (scapula). Secondarily, the second or third toe of the foot side of the hardened flesh and pain may occur. In severe cases, the second toe overlaps with the big toe, or the joint is dislocated. There is also a deformed joint that protrudes from the toes.

In addition, since the toes are in contact with each other while wearing shoes, they are known to cause or exacerbate skin diseases such as athlete's foot and eczema in the summer season.

In particular, athlete's foot is a skin disease caused by infection with athlete's foot, which is a kind of fungus. The skin between fourth and fifth toe or between third and fourth toe is white due to moisture, peeled and sometimes cracked. Eczema , It is reported that eczema occurs when a substance or stimulant acts as an allergen, and then the athlete's foot or eczema is affected by the condition of the toes It is known to worsen or progress.

In order to solve such a problem, a toe spacer is disclosed in a patent document of a prior art document. The toe spacer has a plurality of fitting members capable of fitting five toes.

However, such a conventional toe spacer has a plurality of shim members that can simply fit the toes, so that the ergonomic design of the big toe is not achieved, and as a result, the entire toe can not be corrected.

And it is merely used by being sandwiched between five toes, so that the breathability of the insert is not high, so that the moisture can not be smoothly removed, thereby preventing athlete's foot or eczema from being effectively prevented.

Therefore, the definition of this term should be based on the contents of this specification as a whole.

1 to 5 are views showing a toe calibrator according to an embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in the drawings, the toe straightener according to the present invention includes a base portion 11, a plurality of spacing members 13 formed so as to be spaced apart from the upper portion of the base portion 11, (Not shown).

The base portion 11 has a plurality of upper surfaces 11a having a curved surface structure and the upper surface 11a of the base portion 11 can ergonomically support the bottom surface of each toe.

Particularly, as shown in Figs. 1, 3 and 5, the upper surface 11a of the base portion 11 has curved surfaces a1 and a2 in the longitudinal direction of the base portion 11 such as a saddle, The curved surface a2 of the curved surface in the width direction of the base portion 11 is combined with the hyperbolic paraboloid structure so that the bottom surface of the toe can be more stably supported and the toe can be further corrected.

The spacing members 13 extend upwards at a predetermined length on the upper portion of the base portion 11 and the spacing members 13 are spaced at intervals corresponding to the size of each toe along the longitudinal direction of the base portion 11 A plurality of fitting spaces (14) are formed between the spacing members (13) to which the toes are fitted.
