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)

How do you get rid of overlapping toe nails? I think it came from playing basketball in tight shoes
When i wear running sneakers or high vamped shoes my feet fall asleep. My shoes are not too tight but my entire foot falls asleep. What causes this.
Squeezing Sneakers: When the entire foot falls asleep this typically is a result of lack of blood flow which in turn starves the nerves and tissues of much needed nutrients and oxygen.
