Bunions appear as a misaligned enlargement of the bone on the inside of the foot at the big toe. Bunions may be hereditary, or they may be caused by ill-fitting shoes. Bunion pain tends to be more common in women than in men because many women's shoe fashions are overly constrictive in the toe area. Dr. Hurless recommends the bunion shoes and bunion care products available on the following pages because they are affordable, popular with his patients, and provide first-line therapy for bunion pain.
