Depends: There are a number of causes for bone spurs to develop on the outside of the foot. Among the two most common causes for spurs to occur are either along an arthritic joint or as a result if chronic pressure/irritation. A bunion être deformity is among the most common causes and the forefoot is widened in that area causing chronic irritation and spurring when rubbing against a shoe. Get checked.
