Is it okay for me to wear pointe shoes if you have a bunion?

Is it okay for me to wear pointe shoes if you have a bunion?

Not really: I advise my patients never to force a foot to accommodate a shoe. While bunions generally aren't caused by shoes, a tight-toed shoe will certainly exert pressure on the great toe in the direction of deformity.
