Clarks Emslie Monet Bootie
It can be difficult to find a cute boot that doesn’t make your bunions scream. When you’re shopping, try to look for a shoe that has increased room in the toe box, says Pidich. (There’s a reason why those pointy-toed flats always pinch your feet.)
These cute booties have a rounded toe, and they come in wide widths, which should appease even the crankiest bunions. Plus, the low block heel and sturdy rubber outsole also add to the stability by keeping your feet firmly planted on the ground. And the decorative button-and-loop accents give them a little pop.

“Stretch and form” type of shoes are great for people with bunions. “This type of shoe is made out of a cloth or very soft leather and forms to your foot, which usually eliminates any roughness or tightness on the toe box,” Pidich says. These ones from Skechers (yes, really!) feature a memory foam insole for maximum comfort and stretchy knit fabric that won’t rub your bunions the wrong way.
