Bunions, also referred to as hallux valgus, are a deformity of the big toe. A bunion is the condition that the big toe is angled excessively towards the second toe and a bony lump appears on the side of the big toe. As the condition gets worse, the big toe rubs on the second toe, or pushes it up out of place. So, it presses on the shoe. In addition, because the big toe does not effectively work with a bunion, the other smaller toes have to take more burden of the body weight as you move, which leads to discomfort or pain. Your foot width may become so wider without being aware of it that it is difficult to find properly fitted shoes. So, appropriate care will be necessary before it is too late.
Selecting the best bunion correctors for your needs depends upon the activity and your objective, but there are other factors to consider such as:
Thickness. You’ll want to make sure the bunion sleeve has a thick, quality protective layer to ensure that it protects against friction and scraping.
Show Fit. Also consider the bulkiness and how well the corrector will fit in your favorite shoes.
Severity of Misalignment. In some cases, your bunions might also involve very mis-aligned toes. Some models of bunion pads and sleeves use toe separators or bunion splints to help realign your toes. Think about whether this is a feature you’ll need or not.
Activity. Keep in mind the types of activity you’ll be engaging in. Outdoor adventurers who hike and do a lot of walking may need a more comprehensive, full-foot bunion corrector, rather than just pads.
