The title was not meant to be a tongue-twister, by the way.
One’s addiction to heels, platforms and wedges sometimes takes its toll on your feet. Bunions, blisters and, worst, a sprained ankle might just become the worse of you. What I learned during Sinulog 2010 was that if you want to hop from one event to another, you have to protect your feet. It is highly unlikely that a woman will start turning her heels into the enemy so if you can’t beat them, wear Scholls!
This Scholl Bunion protector is my ultimate savior!
What are Bunions
Hallux valgus, or bunions, are an enlargement of the joint at the base of the big toe (called the metatarsophalangeal or MTP joint) that forms when the bone or tissue of the big toe joint moves out of place. This causes the toe to bend toward the others, causing a painful lump of bone on the foot. The process can take a very long time to develop. Bunions can be the result of an injury that causes a normal person to walk in a different way, thus leading to the formation of a bunion. Bunions also develop because of hereditary abnormal foot types that cause the person to walk in a way that forms a bunion.
Since the abnormal foot types that cause bunions can be inherited, it is likely that if parents had bunions, their children would develop them also.
How to Wear Scholl Bunion Protector
Feet should be clean and dry. Remove protector from backing paper. Place centrally over bunion, adhesive next to skin. Press protector against skin to ensure fixing.
What it does that I love so much:
Soft cushioning felt with Comfortplus™ cushioning that cushions with every step
Self-stick waterproof adhesive holds cushion in place
Won’t “catch” on hosiery
reduce friction and pressure on painful bunions and relieve pain immediately
slim and soft design of the protectors make them ideal for use in closer fitting footware
due to the hypo-allergenic adhesive, the protectors are suitable for sensitive skin.
