Bunions, the Quick Tips

Those bulging bunions may be persistently painful or just in angry angles making it impossible to find comfortable cute shoes. The professionals tend to agree that there is not a definitive reason that these bunions form, but rather just a series of potential risks.  These risks includes an inherited foot malformation, high-heels, ill-fitting shoes, and arthritis, but there is hope to ease or avoid worsening with these compiled 4 quick tips:

  1. Know your healthy or normal weight and maintain it.
  2. Wear shoes that allow that toes to rest comfortably with optimal space, don’t crowd the toes together. ( Put the High-heels down and stop pretending those beautiful feet are an 8 when they’re actually a 9)
  3. See your doctor to get a recommendation to a Podiatrist (There are a lot of mechanics, but they’re not all great mechanics)
  4. Use inserts to adjust how the foot is sitting in the shoe, allow the pressure to spread evenly across the foot instead of on the big toe (try an over the counter insert if desired).

Other methods varied and would be best discuss with a health professional, but the first step in the right direction is to be wearing the correct shoes and stay healthy!

Shop Shoes for Feets for a wide range of fits and styles that will keep your feet comfortable but in style!
