I keep getting ingrown toenails. Could that have anything to do with my shoes?

Your toes should never touch the ends of your shoes. If they do, every time you walk, you bump the toenails, putting pressure on and bruising them. The resultant injury is often loss of the toenail, usually of the big toe. Make sure you have room in front of your toes in all of your shoes and that you can easily wiggle your toes in your shoes.
