ABOUT

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

With more than 75% of bunion sufferers embarrassed by their feet*, National Bunion Day (NBD) has been established by innovative footwear company Sole Bliss to remove the stigma surrounding bunions and to raise awareness of the problem. Offering practical advice and information for living comfortably with the condition, the next National Bunion Day is on Thursday 23 April 2020.

A panel of foot and shoe experts are here to provide information about caring for your bunions – whatever their size or severity. (Click here to read more)
