What to look for

We at Begg Shoes are proud stockists of many brands who design bunion friendly shoes and sandals. Look out for soft uppers preferable in natural materials such as leathers and suedes. Try to avoid having too much detail over the bunion area, as this could cause friction.

Soft leathers and suedes are ideal materials for bunions as they will gently stretch to form a comfortable fit unique to each foot. We also have specialist shoe making tools in our stores which will gently stretch certain areas of a shoe, and we are often asked by our customers to lightly stretch their shoes around the bunion area.

Wide fit sandals are also ideal as these will give more width across the toe box. With that in mind, it would be worth noting that pointed toe boxes will feel more narrow so these are best avoided where possible.
