What heels should you wear if you have bunions?

You can still wear heels if you have a bunion, but they need to be the right type.

Yes, these heels are designed to hide your bunions, while offering excellent comfort and support. They're ideal if you want a cute, stylish occasion shoe for covering your bunions.

Why do traditional high heels hurt your bunions?

Traditional high heels hurt people with bunions because of the added pressure that the shoe + the angle of the foot put on your bunion. They often have a narrow, pointed toe, which places excessive pressure on the bunion, causing irritation and inflammation.

They also place the foot in an unnatural position, aggravating existing bunion issues. The lack of cushioning also causes more pain.

How to choose the right height of heel to accommodate your bunion pain

We appreciate that you may not want to wear high heels if you suffer from bunions. 

For example, if you are looking for occasion shoes for a wedding, it may be best to stick to a lower heel. 

This is because you will likely wear your heels for prolonged periods, and there will always be a degree of natural foot fatigue. 

Our range of dress shoes includes lower heels, such as the Ava style, to accommodate such events. You may also wish to try the ‘9-to-5’ weight-shifting insoles, as an additional comfort feature.
