We touched base with podiatrist Miguel Cunha, DPM, founder of Gotham Footcare in NYC, to fill us in on the popular shoes that could be killing your feet. The offender? Sorry, but it’s Western boots. “The problem is the narrow toe box,” Dr. Cunha says. “This is not the natural shape of the foot so the big toe is going to exacerbate a bunion, causing hammertoes and irritate neuromas.” These can become long-term issues that could ultimately make wearing any of your favorite booties or heels feel cumbersome, he tells us.

But don’t totally freak out if you’re feeling the cowboy boot trend. “If you must purchase a Western shoe, search for one with a square or wider toe box,” he explains. This way, you can achieve that of-the-moment look without sacrificing comfort.
