Best Shoes For Bunions


Is your biggest concern figuring out a way to be in style for work without the bunion pain? 

You get home from work or a night out, you take off your favorite pair of heels and instantly get a moment of relief after taking them off. While your heels may not have necessarily caused your bunion, they are most definitely not doing your feet any favors. Bunions can create a problem for anyone wearing heels as they tend to create a wider width, cause an increase in width at the front of the foot. It’s really important to find a shoe that fits correctly as ill-fitting shoes can just create more issues if you already have a bunion or they can even cause a bunion to form. It’s really important to find a shoe that fits correctly. Ill-fitting shoes can create discomfort that can cause a bunion to form or aggravate an already existing bunion deformity.

In most cases it’s really hard to fix a bunion but if you do have bunion issues, find the proper shoe size for your feet [Once a bunion develops, the goal is to find shoes that give the most comfort and don’t aggravate or make it worse.]. Unfortunately the only real way to fix a bunion is surgery.  Stretching and splinting of the big toe joint and an adequate arch support, helps alleviate bunion pain.   If surgery is not an option for you, our biggest piece of advice is that if you do have a bunion, wear wider shoes- you will save feet in the end.
