It’s time to learn to love your feet!
Around 14 MILLION people in the UK alone suffer from bunions (hallux valgus)
This includes 10 MILLION women – 38% of women over 30

Offering practical advice and information for living comfortably with the condition, the next National Bunion Day is on Thursday 23 April 2020*.
