Bunions continue to be a subject that no one likes to talk about - in fact, many people don't know exactly what a bunion is!
Approximately 45 million people suffer from bunions in the USA, so it's time to discuss and embrace our feet to help remove stigma of the condition.

It occurs when the long foot bone (first metatarsal) moves outwards, resulting in the big toe moving towards the second toe.

"High heels don't cause bunions. Sole Bliss contains patent-pending 'Juanet' technology, which includes the 'Bunion Bed.' This is a carefully positioned stretch panel inside the shoes that moulds around the bunion relieving the pressure and supporting bunions."
Both men and women can suffer from bunions but given that women's shoes often require the foot to contort into an unnatural position, it is no wonder bunions are uncommon in men. With Sole Bliss' collection it is easy to find elegant and stylish range of bunion friendly women's shoes that will not put your feet in unnatural positions.

However, this does not guarantee your bunion will not return. Surgery may not be suited to everyone but there are ways to alleviate discomfort in the short-term with fashionable shoes for bunions.
