What Are Good Shoes for Women with Bunions?

The need for bunion surgery in Sugar Land often results from wearing shoes that distort the natural shape of the feet. Women in particular are at risk for bunion formation.

This video explains how footwear can impact foot health. Many women wear high heels, but this type of shoe can create unnatural pressure on interior side of each foot. As a result, the large toe bends inward toward the rest of the toes, which forces the bones at the base of the toe to protrude. A foot and ankle specialist may caution women who wear high heels to try other forms of footwear that allow the feet to move as they normally would. Shoes with a wide toe box can provide sufficient space and support, which can help in averting bunion surgery.
