A bunion is either inherited or forms due to too much pressure being placed on the big toe joint. This is usually a result of wearing shoes that are too narrow and constricting or ones that offer no support when the foot rolls inwards and places increased pressure on the bone.

Features of shoes to help BUNIONS

Orthotic insole

To avoid the deformity from progressing an orthotic insole to support the arch and align the foot is key. The insole keeps the foot in place and prevents it from tilting inwards so no additional pressure is placed on the bone.

Stretch upper

Bunions come in all shapes and sizes therefore to accommodate all, an upper made with stretch fabric is ideal as it will conform to the exact shape of the bunion and foot. This means the bunion is not squeezed into a constricting shoe, which naturally eliminates pain in the area.

Soft, padded interior

A bunion can be painful and sensitive. Keeping it protected at all times is key to preventing further inflammation and exacerbation. Comfortable shoes for bunions are lined with soft, foam padded linings that are gentle against the skin and shield it from injury. Seam free interiors are even better as they ensure not even a tiny thread will irritate it.

Toe box

The wider the forefoot area, the more room there is for the bunion. Shoes with a wide, tall and round shaped toe box are best shoes for bunions as they create a pressure free and relaxed fit.

Wide widths

If you have a bunion, chances are you won’t be able to fit into a medium or “standard” width shoe. Brands such as Orthofeet offer bunion shoes in wide, extra wide and extra extra wide widths to accommodate any foot shape.

Non-binding upper

Shoes constructed with a non-binding upper design and no overlays across the bunion area eliminate pressure on bunions.
