“Toenails serve a purpose in protecting the tip of your toe and protecting the blood vessels and nerves at the tip of the toe,” said John Krebsbach, DPM, a podiatrist in Milwaukee, WI. Imagine dropping a rock on your foot. Would you rather have the meager protection of a toenail, or none at all?

“In some individuals, once the nail is gone, the skin and fat pad at the tip of the toes thin or recede, leaving the bone at the tip of the toe vulnerable and at times painful to touch and irritable to shoe pressure,” Krebsbach says. “Others can live comfortably and continue active lifestyles—including running—without issues. Toenails are like our appendix,” Krebsbach says. “They do serve a purpose, but we can live without them.”
