Have you ever stopped from hiking because your toes felt pinched, abraded, compressed? Did some blisters make your hiking experience miserable and you couldn’t hike for days after that? It’s common for people with wide feet to encounter these kinds of problems.
There’s a solution for this, no worries. You need to find boots that are sufficiently wide in the toe box so that your feet have enough room in the front.
I have put together a list of boots fit for those with bunions. I know of some from experience, and others are specialized. And here’s a boot stretcher that works very well, for those of you who own boots that they don’t want to part with:
Another great and economic product for all of you hikers out there struggling with bunions is Columbia Women’s Newton Ridge Plus-Wide Hiking Boot.
Made from leather, with a rubber sole, this boot is specifically built wide, so that toes won’t get stranded and suffer when hiking.
Waterproof and breathable at the same time, it’s a sure thing that no drop of water or sweat will increase the chances of bunions, since no moisture will wet your feet.
The nylon stability shank and the Omni-grip non-marking rubber outsole will help you when your trails get rocky and difficult. Therefore, no sore toes, no bunions in the end.
Priced under $100, these boots will save not only your feet from bunions, but also your pocket.
