Not really a huge difference. You can see the little toes have straightened some, and are spread further apart. The major change that does not show up well in the photos is the lack of callous tissue. I used to have callouses on the bottoms of my feet and the sides of my third and fourth toes which are now gone. I have a little bit left on the big toe of my left foot, because I'm still battling a wart on the pad of my foot that affects gait.
