Do Men Wear Toe Rings?

It's not big secret to us, but a lot of men buy and wear toe rings. 

Lots of guys do email us though, asking if it's okay for them to wear toe rings. They also want to know what toe they should wear them on (any toe is fine). Wearing toe rings is not a sign of sexual preference by any means. 

Toe jewelry is largely associated first with Indian culture, then Bohemian fashion, and now has become a popular reflection of beach culture, flip flop-wearers, and a fun vacation indicator. 

Men and women tend to wear toe rings on the second or third toe, and sometimes the big toe. This type of jewelry was largely marketed to women, but toe rings are generally unisex designs. However, around the 1990s, more masculine toe jewelry designs emerged in fashion. American male surfers were the first large group of men to sport the body jewelry accessory. Today toe adornment is becoming more mainstream for men who like jewelry.

For many years, Indian men have been known to wear toe rings on each big toe - a sign of masculinity, power and strength. They may also wear toe rings for medicinal purposes, utilizing pressure points on the toes for healing. Indian women also wear matching rings on their toes as a sign of marriage.

People can expect to see more men wearing toe rings in the future with the large selection of masculine designs and the greater social acceptance of male body jewelry.

I’m a 58 year old man , and I have been wearing fitted toe rings since 2003..twenty years now. I mostly wear six gold rings on my middle toes. I have also worn silver rings on my little and big toes. I wear sandals 340 days a year, and people give me compliments!

I am 66 years. I just lost my wife of 22 years and have moved my wedding band to whatever toe it fit. 1/3rd of my life deserves remembrance and honor…

I just started wearing a toe ring about a month ago. I love it. I also wear a leather ankle bracelet. I’ve been wearing ankle bracelets for years. They look great together. Especially with flip flops. I’m a 55 year old bisexual guy but I don’t feel that my jewelry defines my sexuality. If you like it, wear it!

I agree with Mike, there is no shame for a man to have toerings. I have 9 toerings on right now, stacked on 3 toes. I have great looking feet because I take care of them, and live in sandals.
So, you guys out there, don’t worry too much about what people think of a toering or two. I don’t.
