Bunions appear as a misaligned enlargement of the bone on the inside of the foot at the big toe. Bunions tend to be hereditary, but can be aggravated by shoes that are too narrow in the forefoot and toe.
SHOE RECOMMENDATIONS: Obtain shoes of greater width and a wider toe box area to provide space for the bunion. Wear softer shoes to decrease irritation and avoid pointed toe shoes. If the bunion pain persists, see a podiatric surgeon who may prescribe orthoses (special shoe inserts) or recommend treatment alternatives, including surgical correction. Listed below are shoes from our stretchable shoe collection. There may be other shoes on our site that would work for your specific bunion, the following are only suggestions.
