Bunions are caused by the deviation of the big toe inwards and the deviation of the knuckle of the big toe outwards. There is a genetic element to who gets bunions, but poor, tight-fitting footwear can contribute to the development of this change in foot shape. As the forefoot widens, you can experience rubbing and compression against the inside of shoes, and as the arch flattens, you may experience pain under your foot. Finding the right fitting, supportive and well-cushioned footwear can make a big difference to your levels of comfort and can support the efficient biomechanics of your foot through each stride.

The best Skechers shoes for bunions will have a spacious toe box to prevent pinching the toes together and rubbing the side of the big toe.
