Bunions | Hallux Valgus

Prevention

To help prevent bunions, wear comfortable shoes that fit well:

  • Be sure your shoes don't cramp or irritate your toes.
  • Choose shoes with a wide toe box — there should be space between the tip of your longest toe and the end of the shoe.
  • Your shoes should conform to the shape of your feet without causing undue pressure.
