On a visit to a podiatrist she told me that I had the beginnings of a bunion on one foot. The word was familiar but I hadn't any idea what it actually is. Now I have, I realise that it could affect my ability to keep my ancient frame moving. I need to replace my running shoes, which are well-worn, with ones that leave plenty of room for the toes and which are properly adapted to my gait (very different from the ones I was sold a few weeks ago and have never used). There appear to be actions I can take which will retard the full development of the bent toe, as well. My question is: has anyone on the forum had to deal with this and how has it gone?
