Oh look, another rock star is out on a SUP during his family vacation in Hawaii. Wait, what’s with those toes?

It seems that the Aerosmith frontman, Steven Tyler, suffers from Morton's neuroma which the U.S. National Library of Medicine describes as, “an injury to the nerve between the toes, which causes thickening and pain. It commonly affects the nerve that travels between the third and fourth toes.”

World renowned reporting journal, Celebrity Fix has all the details:

It seems he has had the problem since the 1970’s of wearing poor footwear and rockin’ it out on stage to much.

Steven has previously talked publicly about getting surgery to try fix the damage done by his hyperactive dancing on stage.

"The doctors told me the pain in my feet could be corrected but it would require a few surgeries over time," he told People magazine.

"The 'foot repair' pain was intense, greater than I'd anticipated. The months of rehabilitative care and painful strain of physical therapy were traumatic.

"I really needed a safe environment to recuperate where I could shut off my phone and get back on my feet."

Sorry about that. I know you can’t ever unsee those toes.
