I am an active 50-year-old woman who enjoys walking and visiting museums and parks in New York City. Although I had a bunion removed it came back. Is there any particular type of footwear that would prevent the formation of bunions?
Manhattan patients with bunions are always hoping to get back on their feet fast after bunion surgery. In some cases, Manhattan patients will choose bunion surgeries that don’t address their specific foot problem, allowing them to recover rapidly. However, months or years later they will find the bunion comes back. It is important to choose the best bunion surgery specifically for your foot to limit the chance of recurrence. As for bunion prevention footwear, I often tell my Manhattan patients to limit their time in high heel or pointy toe shoes.
