Nike Shoes for Bunions

Minute Read


Posted 2 weeks ago


by James McCormack

A bunion is the deviation of the big toe, resulting in a bony prominence on the inside of the mid-foot. This can be painful, particularly if shoes are tight and pinch the toes together or rub on the bunion. Finding well-fitting Nike shoes for bunions that have enough space to accommodate the bunion can significantly reduce the pain and discomfort in your big toe joint.

Best Nike Shoes for Bunions

The best Nike shoes for bunions will have a wide toe box, good cushioning along the sole and a low heel-to-toe drop. Based on our extensive experience treating bunions, we recommend the Nike React Infinity 3 for mild bunions and the Nike Structure 24 for moderate to severe bunions.  

Best Nike Shoe for Mild Bunions

We recommend the Nike React Infinity 3 as the best shoe for mild bunions. 

The Nike React Infinity 3 is a well cushioned neutral shoe with a 8mm heel-to-toe drop. This keeps pressure of the forefoot and absorbs the impact of each stride.

In the wide fit size the shoe offers a spacious toe box to allow for the greater forefoot width of a bunion.

Best Nike Shoe for Moderate to Severe Bunions

We recommend the Nike Structure 24 as the best shoe for moderate bunions. 

The Nike Structure 24 is a supportive shoe for those who over pronate. Bunions change how the foot works and often with moderate or severe bunions the foot will over pronate.

The shoe offers a spacious toe box in the wide fit size. It has good cushioning under foot and a low 8mm heel-to-toe drop, keeping pressure off the forefoot.
