Are Barefoot Shoes Good For Bunions?

News / March 21, 2022

If you have ever had a bunion, you know how painful it can be. A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the outside of the big toe that can be caused by the shape of your foot or by the way you walk. The big toe gets pulled towards the smaller toes causing the joint to stick out. This can result in chronic pain that may require surgery.

Although often genetic, there are things you can do to try to prevent bunions from forming. There are exercises and stretches you can do, such as toe curls or spreading your toes. If you stand for long periods of time at work, try to rest your feet as much as possible on your time off. Maintaining a healthy weight will reduce the amount of pressure on the feet and the big toes.

The most important factor in preventing bunions is to wear the proper footwear. High heels, pointy-toes and tight shoes can all contribute to bunion development. Leguano Barefoot Shoes have several characteristics that may be effective in preventing bunions as well as alleviating the pressure on an existing bunion.

  1. Wide Toe Box

Traditional shoes can be narrow and tight-fitting which is not only uncomfortable but can lead to deformities. Leguano Barefoot Shoes are shaped like our feet. They have a nice wide toe box that allows the toes to splay out naturally and not be overcrowded. These shoes are unbelievably comfortable!

  1. Elastic Upper

The woven upper fabric stretches to fit the foot perfectly. Feet are not constricted and maintain their natural shape. If you have an existing bunion, the soft fabric will not rub or cause friction.

  1. Zero Drop Sole

The zero-drop sole keeps the toes and heel at the same level to the ground. This puts the body in a natural alignment and can lead to better posture and less strain on joints including the toes. Traditional shoes with any type of heel will cause the body to lean forward and put unwanted pressure on the toes.

  1. Padded Tongue

Some styles of Leguano Barefoot Shoes have a soft padded tongue that further reduces the pressure on a painful bunion.

Don’t worry! With Leguano Barefoot Shoes, you don’t have to compromise on fashion to have comfort. They come in many fashionable styles and colours to match any wardrobe. Get some bunion relief in these superior handmade shoes!
