It is NOT all about the shoes! Don't mislead people. Bunions can also be caused from arthritis, birth defects, neuromuscular disorders, or trauma (that is how I got mine). I had a bunion and a hammertoe on my left foot that I had surgery on back in the 90's. I do not regret it. It is pain free. I injured my right foot in May which caused a bunion and 4 hammertoes on my right foot. I will be having surgery this winter. Everyone should decide for themselves if they should have surgery. Only have it as a last resort.
