Post- OP Hallux Limitus and Rigidus - X1 Blade User

Contact Name: Karen D. Phone: Email Address: KD@xxxxxxxxxComments or Questions: Hi Clyde, I've been using one of your X1 Blades for Hallus Limitus/Rigidus for the past 10 months or so. (I had surgery to remove bone spurs in November, but still have considerable arthritis in the joint. I've been using your light model in my shoes as I generally walk 3-5 miles a day. Do you think I should use a feather model to use when I'm not out walking my dogs or one the trail (i.e. in the office or running errands around town)? Or just still with the light? I just ordered a second light insert and thought I'd check with you before you mail it out. Thanks! Karen.........Answer - Yes, sure try the Feather model for everyday walking. The Feather is geared for about 2500 steps per day (normal ADL walking)and will last for about a year. If you don't get as much pain relief with the Feather model as you did with the Lite model send it back for an exchange. Clyde

Hallux Rigidus

Contact Name: Jim B. Phone: 219-xxx-xxxx Email Address:internet Comments or Questions: A few years ago, my podiatrist diagnosed me with hallux rigidus (a result of turf toe twenty years ago), and prescribed orthotics.Since then, I have worn the orthotics, my toe has become more painful, and I have developed a Morton's neuroma on the the same foot (which I think is due to an altered gait resulting from my toe). I am a Fedex courier, so I'm on my feet moving all day. I'm writing to ask which of your products do you recommend. I am 6'4" and weigh 220. Please help a fellow Hoosier. Thanks, Jim......... Jim - I would recommend a pair of New Balance MW 928 Walker along with an X1 Blade Hiker model. See my previous blog from Tim in Florida.Clyde

Lisfranc Injury : Gymnast Courtnet Kupets

My Uncle Clyde Peach makes X1-Blade Popper through his company Indiana Brace ( and I recently started using one and I love it. I have a Lisfranc injury which makes it hard to push off my toes when I walk. The X1 Blade Popper has helped me to limp less and makes walking feel so much better. Thanks Uncle Clyde! Courtney

Clyde's X1 Blade Customer Comments

Hi Clyde: I received the first pair or what I already have. Thanks. I'm attaching some information that you probably already know but might still be interesting. Some misc comments: 1. I only have a problem with my left toe and right foot is thankfully normal. However it seems that in order to have an even gait that wearing same thing in both shoes makes sense. I don't know if I'm right here. What do you think? Have you ever had anyone do what I'm doing before? I'd really like to know as I don't want to mess up my feet in the long run. 2. Going thinner is definitely the right direction with your inserts. Because of the bunion on the top of my toe your insert can sometimes crowd the toe box and it is far to uncomfortable to wear with many shoes. It really depends on the shoe. 3. Regarding shoes I can not recommend highly enough for your clients the New balance MW 928 walker. It is the update to there very successful 927 which I also wear. I can walk pain free in these shoes. I put your insert in them for extra firmness. The other brand that is surprisingly comfortable and cheap are called Flip Flops. They are made in Britain and I can also walk without insert pain free in them. I wouldn't try to run but it does the trick as a casual. I hope this gets out to help others they have been a godsend to me. 4. Regarding reverse morton's extensions and the literature that I'm enclosing from Dr. Kirby in California it appears he is the leader amongst DPMs in the orthotics area. I don't know why but he is quite highly regarded. However, there is no literature or comparative research which shows that reverse Morton's work better for Functional Hallux Limitus or Structural Hallux Limitus. Indeed the criteria for defining the difference between the two conditions is confusing. I know because two DPMs called my case by both. The last DPM, Dr S.S., was the most credible and all the others seem to look up to him as a sage in the field of foot surgery. It seems agreed that for Hallux Rigidus a full Morton's extension is called for. In fact the article you sent me by the Rochester orthopod I believe just used a carbon plate to firm up the whole foot. Correct? Have you wondered what one of your inserts would be like if you just made the whole toe unit in the same firmness as the extension? It might be interesting because it would seem that you want an even consistent bending of the toes through the gait but maybe Morton figured that out. 5. The problem with your competition is that the products are far to rigid and thick to work for any length of time for most people in most shoes. This is IMO of course. There is no reason to have a rigid plate all the way through your foot where the need is specific to the toe. I do believe that the additional firmness that your inserts brings does help support things overall. The best studies done thus far aren't very good but they show that off the shelf inserts work just as well as the hyped up custom inserts and I'm in agreement. This works to your benefit of course. I'm still astounded that after seeing 4 very busy DPMs - 3 of which recommended Youngswick or variation osteotomies that Dr. S.S. debunked the whole procedure saying that Youngswick doesn't even do Youngswick procedure anymore. Wouldn't you think that there would be some general consensus? At least within a 70 mile radius amongst DPMs in South Florida? Looking forward to trying the reverse m. ext. Regards, Carl

Clyde's X1 Blade Warranty Question

He has used them a lot and LOVES them!! They have worked great helping him compete at his highest level again. We have referred a lot of friends to your product also when asked what helped him overcome his turf toe issues. Unfortunatly yesterday running a sprint in track one of the inserts snapped in half behind the ball of foot in the front arch area. As much as these cost I just assumed there was a lifetime warranty if anything like this happens. Please let me know. Thanks, PS Answer: There is a one year warranty on any of Clyde's X1 designs.

New Testimonial from Carl for Clyde's X1 Blade / hallux limitus

" After trying multiple orthotics and seeing 5 DPMs in the last month I can say that your blades are the best answer to dealing with Hallux Limitus of my type - which is called structural Hallux Limitus. The last DPM that I saw who is quite famous amongst DPMs strongly recommended that I get a Morton's extension and so after researching the subject I tried your product and several others. The difference I see in your product versus the pure carbon plates is that the plates are too hard and brittle throughout the whole shoe where there is no need for the stiffness making them very uncomfortable. The X blades are stiffest where you need it with a little bit of give - which is the best orthopedic solution. I use them in conjunction with an over the counter orthotic and I can walk or play a round of golf pain free. Also, my gait has improved since I don't have to supinate my foot to avoid the pinch in my toe. My profession for 25 years has been as a venture capitalist investing and managing clinical testing of medical devices throughout the world so I have a reasonable amount of experience enabling me to better investigate the efficacy of medically related products. I appreciate your product. "

NEW! Clyde's X1 Blade with Reverse Morton's Extension

Functional hallux limitus, rigidly plantar flexed 1st ray, and sesamoiditis can be treated with the new X1 Blade with a reverse Morton's extension modification. The reverse Morton's extension is an area of relief in the X1 Blade that reduces the jamming effect produced by Functional Hallux Limitus. The X1 Blade with Morton's extension is super thin (.04" thick) and super light (.4 oz) and works by off-loading the 1st ray. The X1 Blade also adds a bit of energy at toe off to improve the users overall gait and reduce pain. Due to the fact the X1 Blade is so thin it is only necessay to purchase one and place it under the in-sole of any average shoe.

Clyde's AcuStep Foot Orthotics

During my 35 years of experience as an ABC Certified Orthotist I have utilized many different techniqiues to fabricate custom orthotics for my clients. It was at times difficult to relieve my clients foot discomfort using the established foot-shape method. That all changed for me in 2001 by using a totally new approach, by disregarding foot shape and concentrating on in-shoe pressures using the amazing AcuStep system. Why the AcuStep is different... Traditional foot orthotics are fabricated based on the foot shape to either functionally support the flexible foot using a piece of hard molded plastic or accommodate the rigid foot using a cushion. In both instances there is inadequate peak pressure redistribution which is the principal cause of foot pain. AcuStep realized that building an orthotic based on "foot shape" was not adequate. Instead, AcuStep decided to take foot orthotic fabrication to the next level by using a totally new approach. By using a patented in-shoe system to measure peak pressures while walking or running, an orthotic can be milled that more precisely redistributes peak pressures while at the same time providing proper foot support. Since pain follows excessive pressure, this is the most effective way to acheive foot comfort and optimal performance.
