Additionally, it's also best to avoid pointed shoes. As much as possible, "the front of the shoe should be high enough not to squash the toes," according to the Medical News Today. Look for "shoes that are wide at the toes allow them to spread out. "This reduces pressure on the front half of the foot, which can help prevent pain and bunions."
