In brief: Many options.

Some conservative management options include the use of bunion toe spacers, bunion shields, and orthoces.
Make sure that your shoes are wide enough for your foot type.

In brief: Foot inserts

Adding a otc arch support can sometimes relieve the pain of a bunion rubbing against a shoe.
Also a silicone gel bunion pad may be effective. The best non -surgical way to possibly reduce bunion pain in a shoe is a properly made functional foot orthotic device.

In brief: Why not try

A wider shoe in the forefoot region? Or surgical correction? Do you really want to bother putting all those pads and cushions in the shoes all the time?
