People who have bunions often find that it is difficult to find shoes that fit properly. Bunions can develop as the result of wearing shoes that don’t fit properly, particularly high heels. High heels have a narrow toe box, which means that the toes are forced into a small area. The height of the heel then places all the pressure of the body on the front of the foot, which compounds the problem.
As a result, the toes are crushed. The shape of the foot can become distorted, and bony protrusions known as bunions can develop in the big toe. These bony protrusions can also develop on the little toe, in which case they are known as bunionettes. In some cases, bunions develop as a result of heredity, regardless of whether the person has worn ill-fitting shoes.
Once you have developed bunions, you can’t really get rid of them. Surgery is available for bunions, but even after surgery, it is possible that the bunion will return. You can cope with bunions & help reduce pain, though. A major contributing factor to relieving bunion pain is wearing the right kind of shoes. A bunion is a bony growth at the front of the foot, which essentially causes the foot to become wider in that area.
Any pressure or constriction of the foot will exacerbate the condition, so it is essential to choose comfortable shoes that are wide and deep enough to accommodate the bunion. Here’s a guide to selecting wide fitting shoes for bunions.
