Best Footwear for a Broken Toe?

I broke my little toe on Monday afternoon and it's been unbearable to walk on. I know it'll take a good few weeks to feel comfortable but what is best to wear on my feet in the meantime?

I have a day out planned with the kids tomorrow and am back in work on Friday.

It's amazing how something so small can cause so much debilitation!

Crocs were comfy for me.

There’s nothing like Crocs when it comes to desperate feet.

Thanks both.

The first time I broke a toe I found my stiff walking boots worked the best, but the next time (yes I've broken a few toes!) I bound the two outer toes together( with padding) and could wear a softer rather generously sized sports shoe. ( I don't have crocs'). I had to swop the insole to a thinner one to give a bit of extra space. I hope your toe heals quickly.
