toes curling

I do a lot of road running and for the past year have suffered badly with my left foot. I have a bunion on this foot, but my problem is that after running a few miles my toes start to curl. My big toe curls up and the others curl under and I have to stop running. I have been to a podiatrist who fitted me with orthotics that have not helped at all. I had the left orthotic adjusted to incorporate a metarsal bar to try to stop the pain that was being caused in one of my toes, but this made the problem worse. I can alleviate it a bit by putting cotton wool between my toes, but it only partially resolves the problem. Do you have any idea as to what I could to eliminate my curly toes? Many thanks.
