i've been having pain for the past few weeks in my right foot where the bunions of big toe are located. i am going to start wearing tennis shoes to work to see if this alleviates the pain. i've never had foot problems like these even wearing the same dress shoe for a few years now and it is actually one of those soft shoe type dress shoes(looks like dress shoes, but soft like tennis shoes). i also once in a while have the same problem with my left big toe too, but much less of a problem. also, i've never had foot problems when i was younger. i do kinda have flat feet. i am in my early 40s. before i decide to visit a podiatrist, do the foot/toe spacers sold at stores work? also, what about foot arches insoles? do they help in bunions or is that for only the bottom of the feet? i have a pic of my right foot. thanks.
