Do shoes cause bunions?
Always wanted to know?
No, shoes do not cause bunions. What they do cause is secondary problems like corns, callus etc.
It is an old story about shoes and bunions, but a study carried out many years ago found that nomadic tribes in Africa who did not wear any shoes at any point in their lives were still getting bunions.
