Bunions are the bony bumps that occur on the inside of feet at the big toe’s joint and they can be very painful. They are usually the result of the type of shoes you wear and continuing to wear these shoes can lead to the bony bumps becoming more painful and growing bigger. When you have bunions, the shoes for bunions that you choose are essential and need to be comfortable and stretchy.
The bump is formed when the bones within the joint of the big toe are not aligned. This can result from pointed or narrow shoes that cause the toes to squeeze together. Bunions can stiffen the big toe and place pressure on the rest of the toes, making it difficult to walk properly. The pressure can eventually cause the rest of the toes on the same foot to bend.
A bulging bunion and altered shape of feet can lead to shoes becoming much more uncomfortable. Narrow or tight shoes are particularly painful as they put pressure on the bunion. Comfortable shoes for wide feet bunions are beneficial towards providing the additional room you need. Low heeled bunion wide shoes are preferable with sufficient space for the toes to fit comfortably. You may need to go up a bigger size to ensure the best fit.
The best shoes for bunions ideally have an additional depth that creates more space that can accommodate any corns or calluses that may be present at the bottom of the feet. Extra space is also convenient for inserts to support your foot. Custom-made shoes can be considered for severely deformed feet.
You can buy good shoes for bunions at a specialist shoe store. These shoes are designed to be soft and wide enough for feet with a bunion. The main features to look for in the best shoes for bunions include function. While you may still want to dazzle everyone with a fashionable pair, finding the right shoe is crucial easing for this condition.
The shoe should be wide enough at the front to fit all your toes comfortably along with the presence of soft soles that cushion every step. Buy shoes for wide feet bunions that are made of stretch materials like canvas.
Adjustable shoes for bunions that have straps or laces are great choices because you can loosen them as per the changes in the size of the bunion or your feet as time goes on. Avoid any shoe that is tight, narrow or pointed. It is also advisable to stay avoid heels that exceed 2 inches.
After obtaining the right bunion wide shoes, adding some accessories can help to boost your comfort. Options for accessories include pads that work by preventing the bunion from friction inside the shoe. Orthotics are inserts that help to improve the comfort of the foot and ease the pressure on it.
Arch support can correct the problem of an unstable arch and flat feet. Loose and thin socks are great for easing pressure on the bunion. Buying comfortable shoes is necessary for preventing the bunion from becoming bigger and developing other complications.
Bunions Size Guide
How to find your size
Stand on a level floor with your heel up against the wall or straight edge.
Place a ruler or measuring tape on the floor under your foot or alongside it, with your heel at 0cm.
Measure the length of your foot from your heel to the end of your longest toe (yes, even if it's your second toe).
Measure both feet and go with the length of your longest foot if they are different. If you are in between sizes, we recommend going for the larger size.
Check out the size charts below to find your size. All sizes listed are either in US or EU, depending on the brand.
Which width do I need?
Most Birkenstock styles are available in 'regular' or 'narrow' width.
Narrow width is suitable for narrow to slender feet.
Regular width is suitable for normal to wide feet.
If you already own a pair of Birkenstocks or are trying them on in store - check out the little foot symbol on the footbed. If the foot is coloured in, it's a narrow (N). If it's just an outline of a foot, it's a regular (R).
