  1. Wear on the ball of the foot: The tendons of your heels may be too tight. Stretch them out with some heel raises.
  2. Wear on the inner sole: You pronate or turn in when you’re walking. Inner liners or orthotic would probably be your best bet to fix this.
  3. Toe shaped ridges on the upper: You either need to face the fact that you need larger shoes, or you have hammertoes.
  4. Outer sole wear: You turn out when you walk, so try some orthotics.
  5. A bulge and wear to the side of the big toe: You may have a bunion or your shoes are too narrow.
  6. Wear above the toes of your shoe: The front of your shoe is too low.
