I have found your article interesting but contradictory to my experience. I have bunions. Walking in flat flexible shoes results in foot pain in the big toe joint. As the ball of the foot under the big toe flattens, the toe rolls sideways, and then flexes uncomfortably as I continue through the step resulting in sharp pains in the joint. I am pain free with stiffer shoes that have high arch supports. I’d love to hear of a cure or remedy to my foot problem other than special shoes if you know any. Thanks for your time.

Greetings, Doug,

Thank you for your message. And thank you for sharing a bit about your own foot health considerations. In our experience, we’ve found that the products and info we offer on our site are helpful for most people, most of the time. Of course, everyone is unique in terms of their foot health history and needs, and we’re not able to offer you any additional thoughts or advice without the benefit of a full health history interview and physical examination. Our general thought, though, is that if you’ve found an approach that’s working for you, it’s probably best to stick with it.

Kind regards,
Marty Hughes, DC

I have bunions and need wide toe box shoes. I have had no trouble finding casual shoes that are appropriate, but I need a dress shoe because I am dressed up a lot and walk a lot. I don’t see anything like that on your website and haven’t been able to find anything in the stores. Any ideas?
