Functional versus Osseous Forefoot Varus

Do X-rays show osseous forefoot varus?
Is this how one distinguishes between osseous and functional forefoot varus (also referred to as forefoot supinatus deformity)? I went to a podiatrist who said I had forefoot varus. I went to an orthopedic surgeon who said that he saw no evidence of forefoot varus in the X-Rays. I see on the web that if you are given orthotics for osseous forefoot varus, which I was, but have functional forefoot varus, damage is done to the first metatarsophalangeal joint.

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Super easy strap adjustment for a custom fit with solid ankle support.
