Which shoes should you wear to help with bunions?

ANSWER

If your bunion doesn’t hurt all the time and you catch it early, you may just need to change to well-made shoes that fit you right. In some cases, an orthotic specialist can prescribe shoes with specially designed insoles and uppers that take the pressure off affected joints and help the foot regain its proper shape.
