    I have a question about boxing. I have the second toe and the 3rd toe the same size and they are both shorter than the big toe, do you think it will affect my boxing especially my footwork?

    I think your feet are not adequate for this sport. Your center of gravity is temporarily disabled due to the same size of 2nd and 3rd toe. But I heard that you can fix this anomaly with wall sits. 15min of wall sits every day could help your 2nd toe to become bigger than the 3rd toe. Then you can try some footwork drills, but be careful! Good luck

    Or have him use one of those metal nail files from an industrial shop to shave a couple centimeters off of the third toe. Then over time with enough training, his body will eventually adapt and compensate for the change in toe dynamics.

    I disagree I have been involved in track and road running all my life and just when you think there is no hope for a spindly legged person that runs from the inside to outside lane in a straight line ! an average coach comes along and works a miracle.
    So it could be just the case of finding the right trainer who believes he or she can get the results with you . I actually feel that your balance could be improved with developing and weight training / reps on the lower legs . A good coach Im sure would be able to correct this

    Given most of your footwork ought to be done on the balls of your feet, I don't think the toes you have SHOULD be much of a problem to be honest, but that's based on the little knowledge I have
