Bunions often cause the big toe to bend towards the other toes. Causing a deformity or breakdown of the joint connecting the big toe to the foot. Therefore, changing the shape of the big toe, the biomechanics of your foot and throwing your alignment out of whack. Bunions are definitely not a fun fashion statement and often quite painful.
