The A bunion or hallux valgus is a bony deformity of the joint at the base of the big toe and our Socks Bunion Corrector comes in very handy in this condition.
The main sign of a bunion is the big toe pointing towards the other toes on the same foot, which may force the foot bone attached to it (the first metatarsal) to stick outwards.
Other symptoms may include:
a swollen, bony bump on the outside edge of your foot
a pain and swelling over your big toe joint that’s made worse by pressure from wearing shoes
hard, callused and red skin caused by your big toe and second toe overlapping
sore skin over the top of the bunion
changes to the shape of your foot, making it difficult to find shoes that fit
If bunion is left untreated, the symptoms can get worse sometimes so it’s best to see a GP. They’ll ask you about your symptoms and examine your foot. In some cases, anX-ray may be recommended to assess the severity of your bunion.
Anyone can develop a bunion, but they’re more common in women than men. This may be because of the style of footwear that women wear.
What causes bunions?
The exact cause of bunions is unknown, but they tend to run in families. It can be worse when you wear badly fitting shoes.
It’s also thought that bunions are more likely to occur in people with unusually flexible joints, which is why bunions sometimes occur in children.
I should have purchased these years ago. These little gems are a great starter to toe spacers and can be worn through the night. I wear a size 7 to 7.5 shoe and they fit well. My right large toe occasionally needs a little more cushion/space, so I shift over the next toe loop for added support (I'm not concerned if my pinky toe isn't spaced). For the price, they are easy and comfortable. They've also eliminated most of my pain.
They seem like they're too small, but I think that's perfect. I do believe they're helping my bunions and hammertoes but I don't know how long it will take if it's even working and isn't just in my head. Preventing or delaying surgery with these socks does seem like a worthwhile thing to try.
