In brief: Yes
As a rule, a stiffer, thicker soled shoe with good support and lower heel, is usually the best.
Controlling abnormal foot function with help to slow the progression of the bunion deformity. Dr l.

In brief: Wide shoes
Bunions can occur for a number of reasons including genetics and shoe wear. Narrow toe shoes likely will increase the incidence of bunions.
