turned toe

My feet are a mess and they feel best if I don't wear shoes at all. But since that is not possible, I am trying to figure out exactly what it is that causes my pain so I can eliminate it. First off, my two little toes have always turned outward slightly. With time, they seem to be turning more, especially the one on my left. It is almost completely sideways and I noticed asI step, it turns out more. I have a lot less flexibility and movement in the little toes, compared to the others. I have started to get a corn or something because the bone closest to wear it attaches to the foot is protruding. It does this on both feet, more so on my left. I also have a protruding bone on the back of each heel, just under the height of the ankle bone. What is causing this? My feet are almost flat and I wear the inside edge of the heel of my shoes away more so than the rest of my shoe. Could this be affecting anything? I don't know what it could be. I am not over weight, I am moderatley active, and it seems like it is getting worse with time.

An ideal cushion to help preserve metatarsal phallangeal joint alignment (e.g. bunion deformity and post-operative toe drift).
