How long does it take to fix a tailor’s bunion with Correct Toes, on average?

Hi, Jimmy,

Thank you for your comment. Everyone’s feet are different, and depending on the severity of the bunion, as well as other factors (like how much time you spend in conventional footwear), the timetable for rehabilitation can vary.

We can’t give a definitive timetable, but we would recommend wearing foot-healthy footwear ( in combination with Correct Toes if you’re hoping to see progress as quickly as possible. Correct Toes toe spacers are an excellent corrective tool on their own, but they have the greatest corrective effect when they are worn inside appropriately wide toe box footwear during weight-bearing activities (e.g., standing, walking, running, etc.).

I hope this info helps! If you have any further questions about the footwear we offer, or if you have additional questions about tailor’s bunions, please do let us know!

Kind regards,
Andrew Potter
