Can wearing a lose dress shoe cause ankle pain? I buy my dress shoes to fit my right foot which has a bunion, so the left shoe is a little lose.

In brief: Yes

Since this would affect your gate and stability of your joints.
In addition, the rubbing from a loose shoe may cause skin irritation as well. Perhaps you need to talk to a shoe repair shop to find out if they can stretch out a proper size shoe for the right foot to accommodate the bunion.
