The Toe Tamer Story

Founder of Toe Tamer Kathy Evans Wisner of Glencoe IL, formerly of Darien, CT and New York, NY.

From botched surgery to business launch. . .

Several years ago, I had bunion surgery. The surgeon talked me into "fixing" the two toes next to the big toe with the bunion because they had the likelihood of developing hammertoes. BAD IDEA! Post surgery, those two toes healed higher than my other toes. When I walked or ran, the toes rubbed against the top of my shoes. My friends with hammertoes complained about the same problem. I tried a few different toe braces and straighteners, but my favorite was discontinued and the others were impossible to use while exercising. So I took matters into my own hands and created the Toe Tamer. It has worked well for me. I hope it works for you.

Through RefugeeOne of Chicago, Toe Tamer found refugee women to help sew their product!

Made in the U.S.A. by talented refugee women

Each Toe Tamer is made with care by women who came here as refugees and are now rebuilding their lives in America. When you purchase a Toe Tamer, you are directly benefiting these hard-working women and their families.


Thank you!
