8 Things You Should Know Before Choosing Shoes for Bunions  

In the United States 36 percent of those older than 65 and 23 percent of people aged 18 to 65 have suffer from Bunions

The early stages of bunions can be treated with proper footwear and toe separators.   

Bunions are far more common in women than in men     

Probably because they have weaker connective tissue on their feet and tend to wear tight high heels.   

Studies show that 30% of women and 13% of men will suffer from bunions in their lifetime.     

Think about proper shoe sizing     

Measure your foot properly before choosing one.
