What can I do to improve/get rid of the tailor's bunions on my feet? What could I have done to have gotten them? (But I do wear pointy shoes often)
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. ...Read more
Stay at home Mom, socks only most time. Can it cause bunions on side of foot? What can I do to correct other than shoes w/ support?
Barefoot and bunions:
Going without shoes does not cause bunions. If you have a biomechanics imbalance in your feet which will pre-dispose you to bunion formation, it doesn't matter if you wear shoes or not. The only way to slow the progress of a bunion forming is to wear a proper functional orthosis in the shoes.
