In brief: Pain
Bunions make the forefoot wider, making it difficult to find shoes that fit properly.
Eventually shoe pressure will cause bursitis (inflammation of the soft tissue) or neuritis (inflammation of the nerve) in the area, making it painful to walk. Orthotics can help slow the development of bunions, although once the foot becomes chronically painful, surgery is usually required for relief.
