Adidas Shoes For Bunions

Minute Read


Posted 3 weeks ago

Bunions are a common condition that can develop from poor footwear or for genetic reasons. A bunion is a bony lump that develops on the side of the big toe, and this can develop if the big toe deviates from a straight position and angles inwards. The deviation of the big toe and the bony lump on the foot can make footwear uncomfortable as the forefoot is wider, and many shoes will compress the toes further together. Finding a good pair of supportive and wide-fitting Adidas shoes can significantly improve the pain associated with bunions.

Best Adidas Shoes for Bunions

The best Adidas shoes have thick cushioning and a low heel-to-toe drop. A stiffer sole is also helpful to avoid extension of the big toe, which is the case with shoe models with carbon plates or rods. With our experience in treating and managing bunions, we recommend the best shoes for bunions are the Adidas Ultrabounce, Adidas Adizero SL and the Adidas Adizero Boston 11

Best Adidas Shoe for Mild Bunions

We recommend the Adidas Ultrabounce in a wide size for mild bunions. 

The Adidas Ultrabounce has a 9mm heel-to-toe drop and a bounce midsole making them a comfortable shoes for walking and running.

They come in a wide fit size to accommodate for a bunion, giving the forefoot space and avoiding compression of the toes.

Best Adidas Shoe for Moderate Bunions

We recommend the Adidas Adizero SL in a wide fit for moderate bunions.

The Adidas Adizero SL has a 8.5mm heel-to-toe drop with a thick, cushioned sole.

As they come in a wide fit size this ensure a roomy toe box to accommodate a wider forefoot and prevent compression of the toes and rubbing of the bunion.

Best Adidas Shoe for Severe Bunions

We recommend the Adidas Adizero Boston 11 in a wide fit for severe bunions. 

The Adidas Adizero Boston 11 has a 9mm heel-to-toe drop and a plush, cushioned sole. And with a wide fit size there is space for a severe bunion, and avoids compression the toes.

The carbon infused rods that run through the shoe make the sole stiff and prevent excessive extension through the big toe which can be painful with a severe bunion.
