Hey Jim & Jenny,

I looked in several medical books we have and could not find anything on 
Morton's Neuroma.  Since I have extremely "flat feet," I too will experience 
those hot, sharp pains in several toes just like Dan described, especially 
on my left foot.  I find relief by wearing good fitting "trail shoes" and 
replace the insoles with full orthoic insoles.  New Balance Maximum 
Orthotics @ $65 are a good choice for me.  Trail running shoes and the like, 
don't give my feet enough support.  I hope orthotics will be the solution to 
your foot problem so you two can get back to your summer hiking plans.  I 
look forward to reading more of your hiking adventures.
Happy & Safe Trails,

Flat Feet
