If you have bunions, you know that it can be difficult to find shoes that fit comfortably. A bunion is a bony growth on the big toe, and that extra knob of bony growth can make your foot wider. As a result, off-the-shelf shoes may not be wide enough to accommodate your feet. Many people who have bunions struggle with this inability to find shoes that fit properly.
Bunions often develop because a person has been wearing ill-fitting shoes to begin with; high heels are a common culprit. Most high heels have a particularly narrow toe box, which forces the toes into an area that is too small for them. This problem is compounded by the height of the heels.
The heel pushes the pressure of the entire body onto the ball and toes of the foot. This is too much pressure for your toes to take. It deforms the shape of the foot, and causes bunions to develop. A bunion that develops on a toe other than the big toe is known as a bunionette. Some people are more prone to develop bunions due to heredity, regardless of what type of shoes they wear.
Bunions don’t go away. They can be surgically removed, but there is still the possibility that they will grow back after surgery. You can minimize the pain associated with bunions by wearing comfortable shoes. The best shoes for bunions are wide and deep enough to fit comfortably around the bunion.
