Having bunions isn’t too much fun. Not only do they make your feet stiff and are sometimes painful, they make finding appropriate-fitting shoes much more difficult. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy comfortable and stylish shoes when you’ve got bunions.
Forbes Footwear is Sydney’s specialist retailer of shoes for bunions and other foot problems. We guarantee that you’ll find a shoe that accommodates for your bunions and alleviates the pressure with our range of excellent quality wide-set shoes.
Let’s take a look at finding the right shoes for bunions at Forbes Footwear:
What are bunions?
A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of the big toe, most often caused by tight-fitting shoes, arthritis and foot stress. Bunions can cause bone deformities, pain and stiffness.
How to treat bunions
The best way to treat bunions is simply by changing your shoes to a less tight, wider pair of shoes. This allows for your feet to spread out, giving your toes plenty of room. Pain medication and, in extreme cases, surgery are also options.
Shoes for bunions
Research is showing us that footwear has a huge impact on bunions. 35% of bunions are caused by inappropriate footwear, which is why it’s a condition mainly affecting women (due to the tight-fitting shoes typically worn by women, like high heels and other shoes with a narrow point).
It’s no secret that having bunions makes it more difficult to find correct-fitting shoes. However, Forbes Footwear stocks a wide range of shoes for bunions which are quality-made, stylish and super comfortable.
