Posts for tag: deep toe box

ShoesGrab your best picnic blanket and pack up the lawn chairs. Hits from the 1950s to the 1980s will be filling downtown Pleasanton as the group Magic Moments makes it way to perform at this week’s Concert in the Park on Friday, August 22 from 7 to 8:30 PM at Lions Wayside Park. Don’t forget to wear your best shoes for bunions, either, because your toes are sure to be tapping!

All that standing in line for autographs is sure to put pressure on your foot deformity. Make sure you have a wide and deep toe box that won’t rub on that bump on the side of your foot. The shoes should also be cushioned to absorb shock and prevent pressure from concentrating in that area of your foot. A pair of custom orthotics from Foot Doctor of the East Bay could help relieve pressure on the joint and correct any imbalance.

Avoid shoes that are too small for you. A shoe that doesn’t fit will only make your problem worse. Heels higher than two inches and pointy shoes should be left in the closet for this type of event. If you’re hesitant about purchasing a new pair of shoes, we can help. We’d be happy to provide you with a list of shoe stores that modify the shoes you already have to accommodate your condition.

For further protection, there are patches you can place over the bunion to prevent calluses and corns. Bunion pads will provide some extra cushion for your toe joint. Now that’s something that will make you put your hands—or feet—together!

With the right shoes for bunions, you’ll have no problems when you just have to get out of your seat and dance! Foot Doctor of the East Bay can be reached in San Leandro at (510) 483-3390, Los Gatos at (408) 356-6767, and Pleasanton at (925) 425-9684 to help you with bunion treatment and prevention.
