Best Shoes for Bunions


There are many reasons why choosing the right footwear is important. The shoes you wear don’t simply contribute to your style; they can also affect your overall comfort, health, and appearance. One of the most common foot problems is bunions. You’re probably familiar with bunions and the telltale discomfort they can cause: Stiffness in the big toe and excess pressure to the other toes. If you consistently wear shoes that are too tight, you can both develop bunions and worsen existing ones. Eventually, this can make something as simple as walking more challenging.

Choosing the right footwear is even more important. The best shoes for bunions can both prevent new ones from forming and treat any existing discomfort. The wrong footwear, meanwhile, can irritate your bunions and exacerbate the pain.

Just knowing you need to wear the right shoes doesn’t mean you actually know what to look for in bunion booties or sandals. Luckily here at Taos, we offer a wide variety of options, from comfortable leather boots to sandals that hide bunions. Our styles help you avoid discomfort while staying as fashionable as ever.

What Determines the Best Shoes for Bunions?

Your main goal when choosing a bunion boot or other type of footwear for bunions is to select an option that has extra space around the toes. In general, the heel should also be relatively low most of the time.

It’s worth noting that you may want to discuss this topic further with a podiatrist. If you have bunions, you should be coordinating with one anyway, ensuring you’re getting all necessary treatment. They can also examine your bunions and help you better understand what qualities to look for in footwear.

All that said, while your comfort and health are your top priority, you also have to remember that fashionable shoes and bunions should be practical. You’ll want a versatile pair that’s both stylish and easy to wear so you never have to decide between painful feet and looking great. Again, not to worry! Taos makes finding the best shoes for bunions easy.
