The medical name for a bunion is Hallux Valgus, it is a deformity of the joint at the base of the big toe. The big toe often points towards the other toes causing the attached metatarsal bone to stick out. Causes of this condition can be ill-fitting narrow shoes or those with pointed toes.
Sufferers of this condition would benefit from footwear with soft, stretch leathers and fabrics. The brand Fidelio is specifically designed to accommodate bunions.
