The Toe Spacer, an emerging company founded in 2018 by husband and wife Mick and Meryl Baker has quietly emerged with a powerhouse roster of top athletes not just in CrossFit, but across major sports like UFC, the NBA, MLB and others, amassing a total of 27 athletes. The Canadian company exists to improve foot pain and mobility for all types of athletes.

One big thing: For an initial roster of athletes, this is big by basically any standard we’ve seen in CrossFit not to mention their inclusion of other 10 athletes from five other major sports, including five alone from the NBA. It’s a very strong move from Toe Spacer.
