Best Flip Flops and Sandals for Bunions

Today we are going to review the best flip flops, sandals and slippers for people with bunions.

We don’t consider any flip-flop a treatment for bunions, but if you are going to wear flip-flops, we do have a recommendation for one that is likely to provide some relief of bunion pain.
The only way flip-flops or sandals can help with bunion pain is by decreasing pressure under the big toe joint.  To do this, the flip-flop sandal must include an arch that conforms close to the arch of the foot.  This type of sandal with an arch support built-in can transfer pressure from the big toe joint to the arch of the foot.
We have found one brand of sandals with a superior arch support that is likely to help bunion sufferers.  These are the Orthaheel Sandals.  Available as flip-flops, slides and even slippers.

We also found a great little gadget that makes wearing flip flop sandals even more comfortable.  This is the sandal gel toe spreader and it slips onto the flip-flop to separate the 1st and 2nd toes.
