The forefoot strap may be a problem for some ladies with moderate to severe bunions. If the strap rubs right on the bunion it can cause pain, discomfort and even possibly cause the bunion to get larger. If you suffer with bunions, try on the sandal to make sure the straps don't rub across the bunion and, if there is any discomfort, don't get them.
These Sandals are Recommended to Patients with a history of:
*Mild Bunions (perhaps - depending on the patient)
*Mild to Moderate Hammertoes
*Mild Tailor's Bunions (perhaps - depending on the patient)
*Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Pain)
*Hallux Limitus (Limited Range of Motion across the 1st toe joint)
*Mild Achilles Tendonitis
*Mild Morton's Neuroma
This Sandal is NOT Recommended for Patients with:
*Peripheral Arterial Disease (poor circulation)
*Peripheral Neuropathy (Nerve damage)
*History of Ulcers
*Moderate to Severe Bunions or Tailor's Bunions
Rating: I give this sandal an 8.5
(on a scale of zero to ten with ten being the best).
Have a wonderful weekend!
