A bunion is a result of a change of position of the big toe joint where it begins to deviate away from the midline and towards the 2nd to 5th toes. Bunions can be genetic or they can slowly develop over time due to a number of factors such as a fracture of the big toe, weakening of the muscles of the foot and injury to the ankle. As the big toe joint progressively changes position it can become painful, rubbing off the side of your shoes and causing a breakdown of the skin around the toe. Bunion Pads provide cushioning to the joint of the big toe for extra comfort and pain relief.

Best Bunion Pads

Dr. Scholl’s Bunion Cushion Pads

We recommend Dr. Scholls Bunion Pads due to their thin cushioning that is flexible, and water and sweat-resistant.

The flexibility is helpful as the skin creases as your toe moves, ensuring the pad does not come loose while the gel cushion doesn’t break down.

Feet can get hot and sweaty in the summer, so once the skin is clean and dry on application, these bunion pads will stay stuck all day.

PediDoc™ Bunion Corrector with Bunion Pad

We recommend the PediDoc Bunion corrector with a bunion pad due to their non-slip material, toe corrector and bunion pad gel cushioning.

The non-slip material means the correction stays in place regardless of your activity, while the toe corrector helps reduce pain.

The bunion pad is a gel cushion to reduce friction and provide extra comfort to your bunion.
