I cannot find a pair of shoes that do not hurt. I have a bunion on my right toe and need an artificial toe joint to boot. The little toe on that foot has also been broken. No matter what shoes I buy, after 20 minutes, my toes cramp up and I am unable to walk. The only way I can walk amazingly is then to tuck my toes as far under as they will go and walk on the nubs. Any ideas of shoes?


  • You need to see an OS.That is just not good.I've had 7 foot surgeries and yours doesn't sound good...not to me.
  • I have bunions on both feet, and found a pair of New Balance shoes that work well for me; they're probably discontinued now, so I'll soon be in the market for another pair.

    I don't know if you're a man or a woman, Chris, so if you're a woman, you might consider checking out men's shoes?? I tried on a couple of pair of men's Merrell shoes and found they were wider at the front of the foot. Good luck...those bunions are miserable!

  • I bought a pair of laceless wide sketchers slip ons and they feel light and a small heel and keep you off your toes. I also agree with a foot Dr consultation. Good luck. Charry

  • I also have bunions. I wear men's new balance tennis shoes, thay have a BIG toe box. They give my toes some wiggle room.
  • I love Brooks GTS running shoes. You can get them in different widths and they are extremely comfortable. They are a little wider then the normal shoe. I usually buy my shoes from Holabirdsports.com
