The biggest cause of hammertoes is wearing high heels or shoes that are too tight in the toe box. These types of shoes crowd the toes together, pushing up toes to create space.

By November 2002, 77.75 percent of all infected persons in Russia were male. This is because the number of injection drug use among women is 70 to 75 percent lower than it is amongst men.
