    What are bunions?
    It is bump that forms on the side of the big toe, usually caused by tight, narrow shoes, such as high heels.

    Hmmm..
    I am very curious to know if it is common in the fashion industry to see people with bunions, especially fashion models who wear high heels for a career? It seems like it's not a common subject.. but it seems like it should be since it would probably affect a lot of people that frequent the Fashion Spot forum. I know there are many shoe lovers on this forum haha :lol:!


    Please!
    Tell me if you have bunions or know anyone with bunions. :yuk:

    I found that I have a bunion on my right toe and I am very curious to see how people deal with it on an everyday basis! I am scared that because of developing bunions I have to resort to ugly, comfortable shoes when I would like to continue wearing fashionable shoes.




    Paris Hilton, Oprah, Victoria Beckham have bunions

    There is plastic surgery for bunions.

    What Causes a Bunion?
    Bunions are most often caused by an inherited faulty mechanical structure of the foot. It is not the bunion itself that is inherited, but certain foot types that make a person prone to developing a bunion. footphysicians.com

    Hopefully I don't have bunions, I think they are weird looking and I personally hate to see them in models or celebrities disgusting !!!

    They're probably caused by ill fitting shoes, especially high heels where the toes are jammed together.
    I wear heels every so often, but I make sure not to wear them for too long during the day because it really can cause foot problems in the future.
    I think the best way to avoid bunions is by wearing shoes that FIT. Don't be ashamed of having big feet, having to resort to smaller shoe sizes. I have slightly big feet, and proud of it! :p Point is, you want your foot to be comfortable especially in shoes you wear many hours of the say, yet still remain fashionable.
    I personally like wedges and espadrilles for a casual day out, they don't strain the foot and usually there's enough room for the toes. So importantly, fit then fashion. :flower:
    I have no bunions (thankfully) so I don't really know how to help on how to treat them. But I think there are medicated band-aids out there to put on bunions?
