The Farrow Microfine toe cap is used to control mild to moderate swelling of the toes and forefoot caused by lymphedema and other disorders. Ambidextrous design can be worn on either foot. Toe length can be trimmed without fraying or rolling. Made from polyamide and elastane. Latex free.
Toe cap should not be worn if you have arterial disease of the feet, septic phlebitis, uncontrolled congestive heart failure, cellulitis, or phlegmasia

This product is so helpful! It's the only thing that reduces the swelling in my toes quickly. Wrapping takes too long ends up bunching between my toes, making it uncomfortable. I do wish they were cheaper, since insurance doesn't cover it. Thankfully, my HSA card does. Please lower the price! But, keep this product available! Thanks!

This toe cap is exactly what I needed to reduce the swelling in my toes. It is so comfortable to wear. The only thing is that it tends to slide off my big toe but I secure it with some roll-on body adhesive. It's also easy to stay clean. I just hand wash it and air dry.
Love this but needs 2 improvements, May 5, 2016 By Renee (Pine Plains, NY)
I absolutely love this toecap!! So much better than wrapping each toe!! Would love to see 2 improvements - When wearing the toecap on my right foot with the seams on the outside (as instructed) - the manufacturer tag is on the top of my foot and cannot be hidden. I cut the tag but it is still visible. I would also love to see a toecap that is longer and encompasses the entire foot, passed the heel and to the top of the ankle. It would help the cap remain in place.

Great product! Saves me much time from wrapping 4 toes individually to control swelling from lymphedema.
Only thing on market for toes if you work. Too time consuming to wrap with gauze. Wish I had these years ago. Definate 5 stars . If the price dropped a bit 6 stars.

An excellent product. Immediate results seen when used as directed by my OT. Significantly reduced the swelling due to lymphedema within a period of 24 hours.

Great product. But needs to be offered 30-40mmHg. AND is is way too expensive.

This photo shows the Toe Cap being worn on the right foot with the seam on the bottom of the foot. However, that is only possible, only if one ignores the first donning instruction which clearly says "Make sure seams on toe cap face outward" Worn on the right foot as pictured, the seams must face INWARD. Otherwise the toe cap performs well.
Toe Cap, February 9, 2014 By Sheri (St, George, UT)
The toe cap is made out of very comfortable material and comforable to wear. I wish the company had made a toe cap specifically for right and left foot. If you leave it right side out to wear it then the seams were irritaing to the inside of my toes. If I turned it wrong side out then the seam that is normally on the bottom of the foot is now on top which caused a seam line and irritated the top of my foot. It they could make a right and left, leaving seams on the out side it would be great. Also having more compression choices would be great as I really need a 30 to 40 level.

This is definitely much easier than individually wrapping each toe, but even the x-small didn't provide enough compression - a 30-40mmHg in an XXSmall would be great!
Excellent but PRICEY alternative to wrapping toes, September 17, 2013 By Anonymous (Austin, TX)
I use this under bandages (R&L) in lieu of wrapping the toes, and love using them.
PROS: -Fast (it slips on quickly & saves me 15 min / day of wrapping & rolling toes bandages) -Comfy (a little hot, but the small stays in place well, and doesn't twist or bind the toes the way gauze does) CONS: - Hot! It's not quite as breathable as the gauze. - Pricey - but it all is, sigh; $150 every 6 mos is breaking my piggy bank. - Poor construction - It's ostensibly reversible to permit use on rt or left foot, but that means wearing either the right or left inside out. - Ltd color choice: Would be nice to see a choice of fabrics (like LymphDivas does for armsleeves)
Company needs competition, September 17, 2013 By Anonymous (Panama City, FL)
This compression sock works great and I usually get a few months out of it before it wears out. I think the price is ridiculous! My ins does not cover these products and they are not affordable!

The cap is a perfect fit, and is easy to cut after the toe length is measured. Came with plenty of instruction for use and care. Will definitely be ordering more.

The only thing that seems to control my lymphodema in that area. For some reason, compression boot does not reduce swelling in toes or on top of foot; compression stockings, even those with toes do not do the job.

The toe cap is a nice product. It works well and saves the time of wrapping toes. They are a bit pricey(!)...but they do work well for light to moderate swelling. The advantage I have found over wrapping is that they control the swelling just behind the toes at the ball of the foot. It's hard to wrap there effectively but the cap fits nicely beteween the toes and over/under the foot keeping the area compressed well.I alternate the use of mine wrapping some days and using the cap on others and use it in conjunction with Juzo Varin compression stockings.

The toe caps are a great alternative to wrapping - especially if you need only light compression. I found them to be very comfortable to wear easy to wash and more aesthetic than wraps. However the photo is very misleading. While the toe cap can be worn on either foot if you need it on the right there is a seam that runs straight down to the middle toe. The seam wouldn't be too bad however Farrow also sews a BLANK white label into the seam. Each time I have attempted to remove the label I have ended up with a hole in my toe cap. The toe caps last about 3-6 months - after that time they lose compression - just like any of the stockings. The light colors also become stained and discolored no matter how often they are washed. Would like to see Brightlife carry the black version or even prints like the arm sleeves and gauntlets. Having said that this is my third purchase - the toe cap has become part of my daily wardrobe.

I was delighted to receive the toe caps so I could stop wrapping my toes every day. The only problem would be the foot part should be longer. Because the material is slick it has a tendency to slide down toward the toes and gather at the base of the toes. I need to cover my feet and legs entirely so have added them to the foot and leg wraps. Correcting the problem requires a lot of unwrapping and re-wrapping.Would be glad to know if this changes comes about to correct my current problem.
