Men's Shoes for Bunions
Feel that familiar ache at the end of day? We’re right there with you. Bunion pain isn’t for the faint-hearted—it can stifle workouts, make your workday feel (even) longer, and make the simplest errands a chore.
With the right footwear, there is hope! Typical shoes feature too-narrow toe boxes that squeeze the big-toe joint, worsening bunions over time.
Yet KURU offers some of the best men’s walking shoes for bunions on the market. Our bunion-friendly footwear features roomy toe boxes, flexible uppers, and three-part technology for ultimate support and comfort.
Features and Benefits of Men's Shoes for Bunions
The best men’s shoes for bunions take a wider metatarsal into account.
When looking for bunion shoes for men, be sure the shoes check these three boxes: a wide toe box, flexible upper, and plenty of arch support and cushion.
Wide toe boxes allow your toes and metatarsals to lay completely flat and spread out as they were meant to. This encourages natural alignment and can help not only relieve bunion pain in the short term, but help keep inflammation at bay in the long term.
Flexible uppers allow the shoe to bend with you and mold to your feet, so your bunion isn’t being squeezed from every side.
Finally, plenty of arch support and cushion ensures that your joints are supported from the ground up, helping to ease painful bunion symptoms.

Understanding “FIT” notes:
ALL KURU shoes are sold in US sizing. IF the “FIT” note says “1/2 size small”, you should purchase a 1/2 size larger than your normal size (e.g if wear an 8, purchase an 8.5). If the note says “1/2 size big," then purchase a 1/2 size smaller than your normal size.
Common Causes of Bunions in Men
Bunions in men are often caused by ill-fitting footwear—squeezing your foot into too-tight shoes for too long.
That said, bunions also have a hereditary component, so having family members with bunions can increase your chances for developing them, too.
Effective Ways To Reduce and Treat Bunions
One of the best ways to help treat bunion pain and reduce symptoms is to wear supportive footwear with plenty of space in the toe box.
A rule of thumb should be, if they hurt, they aren’t for you! Be sure to wear new shoes around the house for a bit before committing to ensure you have a proper fit.
Other ways to treat bunions include wearing alignment tools at rest and performing foot and bunion exercises to help keep your condition from worsening.
