Bunions and 8-10 hour shifts don’t mix well. A few suggested shoes for bunions can be found below.
1. Shoes for Crews – non slip and usually do the trick. Ideal for the hospitality industry because of their non-slip characteristic but also offer steel toe, casual shoes, dress shoes, and wide widths. Men, they haven’t forgotten about you either – check out the site for quite a variety of styles.
2. Merrel – can’t go wrong here. Offers lots of casual options including slip ons.
3. Keens – another popular fit among the service and hospital staff, also great options for grocery and industrial workers.
4. Crocs – comfortable but we would challenge their durability, the material tends to wear down.
5. The Walking Company has many designs that are sensitive to bunion prone feet, including Mephisto, Dansko, Ecco, Ahnu, and others.
6. MBT has a wider toe box that gives those painful nubs some extra space.
7. For those who want to go with the leader in orthopedic footwear, you can always default to Aetrex, “the healthiest shoes you’ll ever wear”. They have patented performance insoles for comfort and shock absorption. They use iStep, foot scanning technology to help consumers identify their arch type, shoe size, and pressure points so that they fit you with the ideal footwear. They even have athletic shoes and are expanding their styles to look less clinical.
What can we say….if it works, wear it. Life is miserable if you aren’t able to find a solid pair of shoes for bunions.
