Bunions | Hallux Valgus
These factors may increase your risk of developing bunions:
- High heels. Wearing high heels forces your toes into the front of your shoes, often crowding your toes.
- Ill-fitting shoes. People who wear shoes that are too tight, too narrow or too pointed are also more susceptible.
- Arthritis. Arthritis may increase your risk through pain that changes the way you walk.
- Genetics & Heredity. A family history of bunions may mean you have inherited a tendency to develop bunions, possibly as a result of minor defects in the structure of the foot.
