Rockport® Sandals for Bunions

It may be hard to find the perfect sandal when you have bunions, as they may stick out, or the sandal straps may be uncomfortable against your bunions.

So, we have chosen a few sandal models from Rockport that will give you a more flattering and accommodating fit for your bunions, with good comfort and support features such as their truTech technology and EVA cushioning systems to reduce the impact on painful bunions.

Treating Bunions

Bunions can be painful and quite unsightly, and they may be aggravated by shoes that pressure them or by medical conditions such as Arthritis.

Bunions can cause other issues such as corns and calluses on the smaller toes that your big toe is pressing against.

Staying clear of narrow-fitting shoes and sandals when you have bunions and high heels is vital, as they will further aggravate the Bunion.

You can use soft orthotic pads for pressure relief inside shoes and sandals, and choose shoes and sandals with a wider, more accommodating fit.

Prescription or over-the-counter medication may help with pain relief.

Though, ultimately if bunions become very severe, surgery may be needed.
