    Bunions

    Which brand shoes do you wear if you have bunions. Right now I wear runners. Time to buy new shoes and I'm tired of runners. Any suggestions.

    I very seldom wear shoes. I stick with Easy Spirit. They have a larger toe box and are very comfortable.

    Try Crocs. Not only are they comfy and roomy, but they are also great to wear while quilting at the frame. No knee or back problems, either. Birkenstocks work well, too.

    The podiatrist I go to believes in Crocs so much that he sells them in his office. Keens are great!

    i WORE SNEAKERS. HAD MINE REMOVED, AND WAS WALKING WITHOUT CRUTCHES THE NEXT DAY. Wasn't as bad as everyone said it would be, then again I've had over 25 surgeries, going in for the 10th spinal next week.
    get it removed, makes your life easier.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Lynnie, A friend of mine had it done. I didn't see her till 4 months later & she was still on crutches. She was telling everyone not to have it done. Saw her 2 months later and she was saying it's the best thing she had done. Of course I looked at a you tube video & that really convinced me to just wait for laser surgary. Lol.

    I have one foot that is a 'C' width and the other is an 'EE' so buying shoes was always a nightmare, until I discovered Alegrias. They are made wide and come in wonderful bright colors and interesting prints. I can finally walk with no pain! Dad always said I should throw away the shoes and wear the boxes! Lol!

    Yep, I wore Sketcher 2Go all summer. I don't want to give them up. Like walking on air.

    I love wearing SAS shoes. They are not cheap, but they are worth the price. I wore cheap shoes for years and years. My feet suffered because of the them. Now I treat myself right by wearing SAS.

    I also buy and wear SAS shoes. I have bone spurs in my heels and it was so hard to walk in anything but Nikes and various other brands, so needed something more professional in appearance and my friend turned me on to SAS. I had to get all dressed up to attend a wedding in June, bought a pair of dress shoes from SAS and was able to wear them the entire day.

    I wear Merrills. They helped solve all my foot problems. Hope you find a shoe that works for you.

    Same here! Love my Merrill jungle mocs, like having my foot encased in a cloud. For backwoods dog walking I buy Keenes.

    I had my bunions removed years ago and have had no problems until the past few years. Now I have RA and my feet have become very deformed with a prominent hammer toe and misshapen toes. I also have wide feet and need D width. New Balance shoes with mesh, not leather, tops are comfortable. I also wear gel insoles to cushion my feet.

    Yeah, I just googled Merrill's and there are 4 stores in a 10 mile radius of me. I'll be checking them out next week as I will not go to a mall on the weekend.

    Lennie, wishing you a speedy recovery from your surgery. You and your family will be in my prayers.

    Skecher Go Walks, they are extremely comfortable, I've had a failed bunion surgery and I can stand and walk in these for hours.

    What do you wear with the bunionette? This is on the outer side of foot below little toe. I have just had my for in plaster after a break and it has made the bunion and bunionette very painful and to get comfort wearing shoe 2 sizes larger than need for comfort.
