You may be recommended with a Rigid Rocker Modification to the Orthopaedic shoe.

The outer sole is removed, corset metal stays added, the rocker is added and the sole replaced.  The Rigid Rocker sole will replace the flexion at the toes in order to un-weight or off-load peak pressure areas of the foot or painful areas of the foot.
