Our expert says:
Thank you for your question, to wear completely flat shoes is not ideal. One should always wear a shoe with a rubber sole, that takes on the shape of your feet and that have a strap around your heel that will allow your foot and the shoe to function as a unit. Incorrect shoewear is the biggest cause of foot problems. If there is no improvement in your discomfort I would suggest that you go and see a podiatrist. For treatment of your bunion I would recommend that you see a podiatrist for a biomechanical examination to determine the cause of the bunion and then advise accordingly.
