Boot Your Bunion Pain This Shopping Season

You’ve made your list and checked it twice. Now it’s time to head out to River Park Mall or Fountains on the Lake to find those last minute gifts. Do you dread putting on your trendy (and pricey!) fashion boots, because you know that an aching big toe is inevitable? If your footwear is causing your bunion to act up, maybe it’s time to add new shoes to your holiday shopping list.


While poorly-fitting shoes may not have caused your bunion, they certainly don’t help. The more time your toes are crammed into shoes that are too tight or push your toes toward the front, the more pronounced your bunion can become. The first bunion treatment Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee recommend is to wear shoes that leave wiggle room for your toes and low heels. This is especially important if you are going to be walking around or standing in line for a long time as you shop.

Other possible solutions include stretching your shoes or using moleskin pads to cushion the bunion. Using a bunion pad or custom orthotic inside your shoe may help relieve pressure on your big toe. If you still end up hobbling into the house with pain, here are some things you can do to find relief: put your feet up and rest them, wrap ice in a thin towel and apply to the bunion, and try gently massaging the area to loosen the muscles and reduce tension. We can also recommend the best type of pain reliever for your situation.

Foot & Ankle Associates specializes in bunion treatment. Give yourself the gift of healthy feet. Give us a call at 888-784-5335, or request an appointment online at our locations in Sugar Land, Missouri City, or Houston. Let us help you enjoy your holidays without pain!
