No Fun- Bunion.: Wearing pointy shoes "often" is probably the leading cause for the development of the tailor bunion in women and possibly men. Genetics and mechanics may also have a part in it, but shoes are the culprit. Changing the shoe style and fit may offer some relief, but the surgical correction is often needed. Without changing the shoe fit, even surgical correction may be disappointing over time.
