Asics Shoes for Bunions

Minute Read


Posted 3 months ago

Bunions, also known as Hallux Valgus, cause the big toe to deviate from the normal straight position and point inwards, sometimes crossing over the adjacent toes. This causes the knuckle of the big toe to protrude. Finding shoes that fit without compressing or rubbing can be awkward, causing pain. Wide-fitting Asics shoes with good cushioning can make a big difference to comfort and make walking and running much more enjoyable.

Best Asics Shoes for Bunions

The best Asics for bunions will have a wide-fitting toe box, good cushioning underfoot and a low heel-to-toe drop to keep pressure off the forefoot. In our experience, we recommend the Asics GT-2000 11, EVORIDE SPEED and GEL-NIMBUS 25 for bunion pain relief. Each shoe comes in a normal and wide fit, and the GT-2000 11 and GEL-NIMBUS 25 are also available in an extra wide. So you can find the right, comfortable fit for your feet. 

Best Asics for Mild Bunions

We recommend the Asics GT-2000 11 as the best shoe for mild bunions. 

The Asics GT-2000 11 is a stability shoe with good cushioning and a relatively low heel-to-toe drop of 8mm. This keeps weight off the front of the foot and supports the arch, preventing overpronation.

Best Asics for Moderate Bunions

We recommend the Asics EVORIDE SPEED as the best shoe for moderate bunions. 

The Asics EVORIDE SPEED is a more cushioned shoe with a lower heel-to-toe drop of only 5mm.

It also has a rocker shape to the sole to facilitate  a smooth roll through each stride, and taking pressure off the big toe.

Best Asics for Severe Bunions

We recommend the Asics GEL-NIMBUS 25 as the best shoes for severe bunions.

The Asics GEL-NIMBUS 25 is an extra cushioned shoe for maximum comfort. It has a low 8mm drop from heel-to-toe to keep pressure off the forefoot.

The rocker-shaped sole keeps a smooth roll through each stride.
