Brooks Shoes for Bunions
Read More >
Bunions are extremely common and can develop gradually over time. A bunion is a deviation of the big toe inwards, causing the knuckle at the base of the toe to protrude outwards. This can cause your toes to be squashed in shoes and can cause tight shoes to compress or rub against the bunion itself. This can often be the greatest source of pain, and finding the right footwear that fits well and reduces pain considerably.

The best New Balance shoes for bunions will have options of width sizes to choose from to ensure a spacious toe box, they will have thick and plush cushioning, and for some people, it will be helpful to have some medial arch support. With our experience, we recommend the best shoes for bunions are the New Balance X860 v13, New Balance Fresh Foam X Vongo v5 and the New Balance Fresh Foam X More v4.
We recommend the New Balance X860 v13 for mild bunions.
They have a wide-fitting toe box, giving ample space for a bunion without squashing the other toes.
The New Balance X860 v13 has a lightweight, foam sole with cushioning that protects the forefoot by reducing impact. They also have arch support with a medial posting which reduces and controls any excess pronation that can contribute to or worsen a bunion.Buy Men's Buy Women's
