What is the best shoe to wear when I have a bunion?

Shoe choice for bunionsWear a shoe that does not rub on the bunion. This usually requires a style that is a little larger and wider in the front. Shoes with seams on the inside of the big toe area are not a good choice, either, because they will rub and usually cause the bunion to hurt. It is possible that a softer shoe, one that gives a little at the sides, will be easier to wear than a stiff, leather shoe.

Sometimes it is difficult to find shoes that do not cause pain, but padding a bunion only makes it worse. Without treatment, however, the problem will only increase until intervention by a podiatrist is necessary. If the pain is more than you want to put up with, call Podiatry Associates, P.C. in Castle Pines, Cherry Creek in Denver, and Parker, CO today at 303-805-5156 and find relief!
