      Bunion Splint

    Bunion Booties are much more comfortable than rigid splints.. I tried the Bunion Aid and I could never say my toes could move freely, it was the most constricted and painful device I’ve tried for bunions. I couldn’t wear it with shoes or to bed without flinging it across the room in the middle of the night. I much prefer Bunion Booties and yoga to help with bunions. I’ve also noticed that if I avoid white foods that cause inflammation, I’m much more comfortable. Epsom salt is one I always forget about, but is a great suggestion also

      Toe Separator, Bunion pad/bootie

    I am only 21 and am mortified by the bunions on both of my feet. I am embarrassed to wear sandals in the summer. When I was 17 I went to camp and heard all the girls laughing hysterically and it turned out that they could see my feet from under the shower curtain in the community bathroom. It was the most horrible experience of my life. I have tried everything the night time bunion guard, the toe separators, everything and nothing has worked. It's gotten to the point where I don't even buy expensive shoes anymore because after I wear them for a month or two and they are permanently stretched out on the sides in the shape of my bunions.

      Orthotics, Bunion Splint

    Six months ago I booked a trip to Europe at my husband's prompting. As the trip grew closer, I was scrambling to find shoes and then later insoles that would help with all the walking I knew I was going to be doing. I tried Dr. Scholl's insoles, a silicone protector that I bought at Bed, Bath and Beyond and a brace that you wear at night. Nothing helped. I just happened to be searching on Amazon for anything else that might help when I came upon the Dr. JK product. I got them about 8 days before my trip. http://www.amazon.com/Comprehensive-Protector-Corrector-Separators-Straightener/dp/B011VNFF4A/

    There are 5 different types/sets of bunion protectors included in the kit and I experimented with them, wearing them to work and walking my dog. They are made of a very soft material with no rough edges and are very soft on the feet. The one I found that seemed to align my big toe the way I think it should be and also protected the bunion from rubbing against my shoe, was the one they recommend for hiking. At first I just used it on my right foot, the one with the bunion but because this particular type wraps around all 5 toes, top and bottom of foot, my left foot kind of felt like the odd man out. So I decided to try it also on the foot without the bunion to see if it would make my feet feel the same in both shoes. It did and so I wore them this way when I went to Europe.

      Stretching, Bunion pad/bootie

    I definitely notice an improvement in my feet strength when I do yoga....it's so great for my feet muscles. I also wear Bunion Bootie when I'm not in yoga and I feel it also helps to gently work the muscles controlling the big toe. Now when I don't wear the Bunion Bootie I can very easily keep my big toe in a straighter position. It's tragic how much less attention feet get than the rest of the body. Massage and diet are also a essential element to reducing inflammation and swelling.

      Supportive Shoes, Bunion pad/bootie

    I've tried many things out there but I have actually had alot of luck with Asics shoes (1 size bigger than I normally wear) and the Bunion Bootie https://www.BunionBootie.com . Buy one size smaller than the website suggests. It's not elastic so the fit is paramount to having a good experience with the product. They also just released one for the big and little toe if you have a bunionette...I think it's called BunionetteBootie. You'll have to google it. I've been a loyal Bunion Bootie customer for almost a year and a half now and love them. But every foot is different

      Supportive Shoes, Toe Separator, Bunion pad/bootie

    The shoes you wear when not running are extremely important too. If you keep cramming your feet into narrow shoes the bunions will only progress. Ditch the high heels and all those other cute shoes if you want to have a chance at feeling better. Sometimes if they are not that bad changing shoes, wearing toes spacers and using a met pad can make a dramatic difference.

    I love my asics and my bunion booties! They help keep my toe in place (size down for a snug fit) and prevent my shoes from rubbing and hurting.

      Bunion pad/bootie, Bunion socks

    I have been dealing with bunions my whole life but the non stop blister pain is changing my gait. I have tried all socks, shoes, pads, Vaseline, etc. I'm at the point that I want to cut a whole in my hokas! Any other suggestions? Is there any localized numbing agents? Or injections? Not for the joint but for the pressure on side of the foot? I'm guessing probably not but have to ask!

    I wear a Bunion Bootie soft splint and so far it's brought me back from the edge of considering surgery...hopefully it stays that way!

    Have you tried Bunion Booties? Most of the women in my family wear them and love them. You order them to fit your foot (tip: most of us size down) and can wear them 24/7. They are so comfortable we prefer wearing them to not wearing them. A few ladies in my family have had surgery and had such terrible experiences the rest of us will do anything to avoid surgery. Recently my aunt stumbled upon Bunion Booties and we are all wearing them now and loving it!

    My mother swears by Bunion Booties. She's a nurse and on her feet for at least 12 hour shifts at a time. She used to come home and put her feet up and pop an anti inflammatory right away. Now, since wearing the Bunion Bootie 24/7 her big toe feels straighter and bunion appears to have shrunk in size. I think mostly this could be attributed to a less aggravated bunion but none the less, she's loving the Bunion Bootie!
