Do any of you have bunions? Luckily, I do not, but I have an uncle who would always talk about his bunion and I never really understood it as a child, until I got older. A bunion is an abnormal bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. Bunions can be inherited as the shape of your feet can cause them. People with flat feet or with feet shaped in a way that put a lot of pressure on the big toe joint are more likely to develop them. People who wear tight shoes or high heels are likely to develop bunions as well. Most bunions can be treated at home by wearing comfortable shoes, trying not to put pressure on your foot and applying over the counter medications for toe pain. Surgeries are also available. For those who do not need surgery, they have simple, and affordable, products you can use to help provide comfort; such as the Zentoes Single Loop Bunion Toe Separator.
What do these toe separators do? These will help to straighten them out and encourage a natural and healthy alignment. This will help to reduce the unsightly bulge from the side of your foot, and will help to prevent your small toe from angling in towards the others. The main problem with wearing toe spacers inside your shoes, socks and stockings is that the feet sweat, even in cold weather. When you have a non breathable material in contact with your toes, your toes will sweat even more. Sweaty feet mean discomfort, and that is best avoided. Athletes foot affects the smaller toes, and wearing toe spacers can increase the chances of getting this foot fungal infections, as a moist environment means perfect conditions for fungal growth. Some models are designed to help prevent fungal growth, and if you are prone to get sweaty feet, these will be the best choice.
The toe separators from Zentoes is a nice quality, well made, and comfortable to wear. While I do not have a bunion, my uncle tested one out and said he didn`t mind wearing it as it didn`t hurt his foot or toe to wear. It did take a little while to get used to, but aside from that, it was no big deal to him. I like that these are safe to wash as well. I mean if you do have sweaty feet, you certainly do not want to keep wearing the same old dirty spacer so that`s definitely a positive thing to have. Overall these are nice quality and seem to help get the job done. I think it`s safe to say we approve of these!
