Wear the right shoes daily
Wearing the right kind of shoes every day can relieve pressure and bunion pain. “Shoes should have a wide, flexible sole to support the foot and enough room in the toe box—the part surrounding the front of the foot—to accommodate the bunion,” according to Harvard Health Publications.
Make sure your shoes fit properly
When getting fitted for new shoes, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends getting shoes fitted at the end of the day, when your feet are the largest. They also suggest that you stand during the fitting process and check that there is adequate space (3/8″ to 1/2″) for your longest toe at the end of the shoe.
