... My Podiatrist showed me a neat trick with the bunion pad. Place the pad below the bump. This prevents pressure on the bump believe or not. I had a bunionette for twenty plus years and put a pad on it to avoid friction and pressure, little did I know I would have felt better using his method. I had a bunionette and bunion on my right foot surgically corrected. I lasted a... (4 replies)

... Yeah, thanks. I just look at everyone else's sandals and just feel envious that they hare perfect, almost-straight feet that will not call attention to anyone. My feet are are so inward (especially my left foot) that I know I cannot wear flip-flops or anything that exposes the bone a lot. I've seen sandals where the big toe is semi-covered but the rest of the toes are exposed.... (20 replies)

So know I don't... (5 replies)

My left foot hardly ever hurts at all. It was a moderate bunion, but not as bad as my right foot. My right foot hurts when I wake up in the morning and first put my tennis shoes on. Usually the first few steps hurt in the morning but after that, it limbers up or something and... (16 replies)
... I may be a little late coming to this thread, but I too have been living with moderate bunions. I am very active outdoors (think 8-hour hikes and the like every Saturday year-round), and in the past few months walking has become painful in anything but open flip-flops. Runners are ok for a while, hiking boots are torture, ski boots are painful, heels are torture, etc.
