I have tailors bunions which are bunions near the last toe and I wear sandals like thong shaped ones. I recently bought a pair that has like a strap going across the toes and these sandals makes my tailors bunion more noticeable. I don't know if I should return these shoes or not. Is it gross to see bunions? I want to post a pic of the sandals but I'm on my phone so I can't.

If you like them and they are comfortable, I would wear them. A nice pedicure always make you feel better about your feet and makes them look better.

I wouldn't wear it for two reasons:

- the look - it just looks deformed and painful
- can maybe cause further irritation/pain/damage depending on where it applies pressure

Just go get your foot fixed. Better sooner than later. You may be able to get away with home treatment.

I really think surgery depends on the severity. I have them on the big toe of both of my feet and they aren't terrible noticeable and my foot dr does not recommend surgery. They are also not unsightly.

OP, if they are uncomfortable, I would not wear them. If you are ok with showing your feet in their present condition, I would.

I did not see OPs foot so I cannot say they look deformed or painful. Was there a pic up that was taken down?

I am thinking of my grandma..they were painful and she avoided surgery just because "it wasn't going to kill her to have some bunions and not wear heels anymore."

No pic was up. I still wouldn't wear them even if it was slight in case it made the problem worse.. I would be wearing one of those brace things covered by a shoe. The severe ones look so painful I would never want it to get to that point if I could avoid it.

If the sandals feel great, wear them. Do paint your toe nails a neutral shade. My feet are UGLY but will wear sandals anyhow. Have had multiple surgeries due to arthritis, have suture scars all over them, and my toes are funny shaped--left foot looks completely different from the right foot. I try to find "skimmers" with closed toes for summer but have trouble finding ones that fit. The sandals I have at least fit so I'm going to wear them.

I don't think I've ever seen a bunion. What causes them?

Female hormones cause the bone to soften up,and its aggrevated by wearing tight shoes and high heels.

If they don't hurt or irritate your bunions I would keep them.

For those recommending foot surgery.....the poster did not mention her bunions being painful. Foot surgery is not something to take lightly. It is often a long recovery and comes with it's own set of issues.
