I feel your pain. I have a bunion on my left foot, and have been told that I need surgery, but that's my last resort.
I have a pair of Nike trail running shoes that I have worn out because they are so great. They don't make them anymore, so I too am in the market for a bunion-friendly shoe.
Thanks for the post!

I, too have bunions, worse on my left, and they are heriditary. We must be sisters!! LOL. Anyway, I got fitted at a running store into some Brooks that are wonderful. Plus I just recently bought some Nike Air Pegasus that I have to say I am blown away by. Normally Nike isn't a real wide shoe, but these don't hurt my bunions at all.

Ticker is set to my first weight loss goal.

I agree with Lybbe...I have, too, have bunions (worse on the left) and tried Brooks (after being fitted for them at a specialty running store and they DID NOT work for me. I currently wear Asics which seem to being doing well. Mine aren't bad enough for surgery, but for me, after my sister had surgery on hers 4 years ago, she has been in chronic pain ever since and finds it hard to walk much less run.

HAPPY RUNNING!
Nancy

You need to go to a running store and get your feet properly fitted. They'll know what's best for your foot.

Anyone out there suffer from those wonderful bunions?!? I'm curious about the best shoes for those of us with bunions. I have them on both feet. Hereditary! However, my left foot bunion is much larger than the other due to an injury.

I've read good things about the Brooks Adrenaline shoe. Also, what about padding around the bunion? I really need to see a podiatrist to prevent future enlargement of the bunions. I'm just not ready for surgery. I know I need it but at least want to try to get established running and loose some weight first.
