What Shoe Features Are Best for Men with Bunions?
A good men’s shoe for bunions will feature stretch or flex material at the location of the bunion, a wide toe box, adjustable depth, and insoles with great arch support.
Shoes that are specifically designed for men’s bunions can provide relief by reducing pressure on the affected areas of the foot and offer support to prevent exacerbating the condition. Here are some features to look for when selecting men’s shoes for bunions:
- Wide toe box: A wide toe box can provide extra room for the toes, which can help reduce pressure on bunions. Men’s shoe widths range from Narrow (B), Medium (D), Wide, (E or 2E), X-Wide(3E or 4E), XX-Wide (5E or 6E), 10E, and 14E. Depending on the severity of the bunion, a wider width shoe can accommodate the bunion and prevent rubbing.
- Soft, stretch upper material: Soft, flexible uppers, especially at the bunion area, can help prevent rubbing and irritation. Materials such as a stretch knit mesh or Lycra® are soft and stretchable to allow for some give where the bunion protrudes at the foot. The stretch material and wider width shoe can help provide relief from bunions.
- Arch support: Good arch support can help anatomically position your feet so that weight is distributed evenly across the foot - putting less pressure on the big toe joint. Men with flat feet are more likely to develop bunions, so a shoe with exceptional arch support is necessary to slow the progression of the bunion development. If custom orthotics are needed, a shoe with a removable footbed to accommodate the prescribed orthotics is best.
- Adjustable Depth: A shoe with multiple layers of inserts allows you to adjust the depth of the shoe for more interior volume. Look for a double depth shoe that has 2 or more layers of removable inserts to add more space inside the shoe and accommodate bunions.
- Cushioned insole: A cushioned insole that has padding at the ball of your foot (metatarsal pads) can provide extra shock absorption to reduce discomfort associated with bunions as you move.
