The Best Shoes for Bunions

Foot pain can hold you back from doing the things you enjoy, and bunions can make everyday tasks feel excruciating. This common foot deformity, also called hallux valgus, features a bump of bone at a joint—most commonly where the big toe connects to your foot.

That bony bump can be painful once it reaches a certain size or position, but bunions develop slowly over time and may not hurt right away. Exercises like hiking, running, or even walking can put painful pressure on a bunion.

What causes a bunion?

The amazing KURUSOLE™ technology features a dynamic midsole that flexes with your feet and provides more cushioning and support for the arch and heel. The HEELKRADL™ cups your heel to better absorb shock and center your foot for proper heel to toe strikes.

Bunions form when pressure, often from tight shoes, pushes a joint inward. High heels or shoes with a narrow toe box are often the culprit when a bunion forms on your big toe. Arthritis and family history can also make you more susceptible to bunions.

Bunions are more common among women—especially women who wear high heels. If you continue wearing narrow or otherwise poorly-fitting shoes, the bunion will grow bigger and the pain more intense.

The pain from a bunion can hold you back and keep you from doing the things you enjoy—or even disrupt your daily routine. Fortunately, the fix for most bunions begins with conservative treatments like proper fitting footwear, and surgery is generally not necessary.

Prevention, treatment, and the right shoes

Supportive, comfortable shoes with a wide toe box can relieve the pressure on bunions and put a stop to the pain—bringing your body into the best position to heal. Wide-width shoes, or even a broad toe box in a standard width, can give your toes the break they need.

Feel the relief in every step as KURUSOLE cups and cushions your heels from impact. Unlike other heel pain products, KURUSOLE dynamically flexes with you as you move to deliver Pain Relief Beyond Relief.
