Hammer toes occur when the middle joint of the second, third, or fourth toes bends in an upward position, creating a claw-like or hammer look. Hammer toes are not a serious condition, but they can become quite painful, causing shooting pains and discomfort throughout your toes and feet, and soreness where the toe rubs the inside of the shoe. They can develop at any age, even adolescence.
