Many dancers who have worked on pointe know just how painful and frustrating bunions can be. Luckily, Allegro recently got in two new Bunheads bunion products that can help to reduce the pain. A few days ago I tried on both the Bunion Button and the Bunion Guard and was quite happy with how they felt.
The Bunion Button is a self-adhesive oval covered in a stretchy fabric, which can be placed directly over the bunion to help prevent friction between the bunion and the shoe. Although it is stretchy, it does seem to run large. I’d recommend trying it on as you are getting fit for shoes in case the shoe needs to be slightly wider to make space for the Button.
I’m particularly excited about the Bunion Guard. For dancers who are already wearing multiple bunion products and feel that there is simply too much material inside their shoe, the Bunion Guard combines Bunion Busters and toe spacers all into one. You just slip the Bunion Guard around your big toe, and the spacer aligns your toe and reduces joint pressure while the rest of the guard protects the bunion itself from friction. I was surprised to find that it did not feel overly bulky, and was hardly noticeable when up on pointe.
Girls who have been struggling to find the right way to deal with bunions should definitely check out both of these new products!
