Bunions are a deviation of the big toe from a straight position, across the foot and sometimes it will cross the next toes. The big toe becomes less effective in terms of the biomechanics of the foot and the knuckle of the big toe will widen and this can make it difficult to find shoes that fit comfortably. Getting well-fitting shoes can make a big difference to your comfort levels with bunions.

Best Brooks Shoes for Bunions

The best Brooks shoe for bunions will have very good cushioning, a wide toe box and a low drop from heel-to-toe. This reduces impact through the foot, prevents the widened foot from rubbing against the shoe and keeps the pressure off the front of the foot. In our experience, we recommend the best Brooks for bunions are the Brooks Dyad 11, Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22 and the Brooks Glycerin 20.

Best Brooks Shoe for Mild Bunions

We recommend the Brooks Dyad 11 as the best shoe for mild bunions.

This is a neutral shoe with a low heel-to-toe drop and a wide-toe box. The Brooks Dyad 11 is available in medium, wide and extra wide fit.

The sole is well cushioned for comfort with every stride.

Best Brooks Shoe for Moderate Bunions

We recommend the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22 as the best shoe for moderate bunions. 

They are a well cushioned shoe with support for over pronation.

As they come in a range of widths you will find a size that fits providing you plenty of space in the toe box.

Best Brooks Shoe for Severe Bunions

We recommend the Brooks Glycerin 20 as the best shoe for severe bunions.

This is a plushly cushioned shoe with good width in the toe box and a low heel-to-toe drop of 10mm.

They are designed to help roll the foot through from heel to toe.

They are available in medium and wide fit. And also available as Glycerin GTS 20 for those needing more arch support or for those who overpronate.
