If you’re at a loss searching for the best shoes for bunions, you’ve come to the right place. Heels, though cute, often aren’t the most comfortable footwear for most people, and for anyone with bunions, they add an extra challenge. 

And it’s not just heels, plenty of “normal” shoes can be difficult for those with bunions. Wearing shoes that are even the slightest bit too tight or made from stiff material is enough to cause toetal agony. 

Bunions are caused by a variety of factors; genetics, inflammatory joint diseases, foot injuries, or even arthritis. According to Harvard Medical School, bunions are formed when the big toe pushes against your other toes, causing the base of the big toe to angle out of the foot. This can develop when feet are repeatedly squeezed into narrow, pointed-toe shoes. As a result, wearing shoes that irritate bunions won’t just make them hurt more, but they can also cause other foot problems like blisters. Ouch.  

Luckily, you’re not relegated to specialty shoes only if you’re a bunion sufferer, there are heaps of everyday sneakers and nifty tools that can accommodate bunions – the trick is knowing what to look for.

Arch Support

Oftentimes, people with bunions have flat feet and an unstable arch. Your foot’s arches support your body weight while you’re standing and play a massive role in helping you walk or run. However, not all arches are created equal!  Your arch is individual to you, when you’re born your arch develops during childhood and continues to morph through adolescence. 

Having a flat arch makes your foot roll excessively when you walk and can cause foot pain as well as muscle stress and joint problems
