Does running cause bunions? The short answer—no. People without bunions will not suddenly develop them when they start a training program. “It’s not that running causes bunions. If you have bunions to begin with, running can perpetuate that deformity,” says Richard T. Braver DPM, a sports podiatrist located in Fair Lawn, Riverdale, and Englewood, NJ.

Addressing the fit of a shoe is often the first conservative approach for runners. Dr. Braver suggests creating a small opening on the side of their running shoe where the bunion protrudes. Put the shoe on, feel the area where the bone is most prominent, mark it with a pen, and then cut a small "X" in the center. This allows the big toe to have more room to move while running.
