Bunions or Hallux Valgus

Bunions, also known as hallux valgus (HV), is a common foot disorder. It is the bony enlargement that develops along the inner side of your foot. Shapecrunch makes Slippers for Bunions with Toe-Separator that provides Bunion Pain relief, aligns the toe, and prevents Bunion effect on other fingers. 

Bunions and Hallux Valgus

What are the causes of
Bunions or Hallux Valgus  ?

Bunions can form because of many different reasons. It is usually caused by an inward displacement of the big toe due to wearing tight shoes or high heels for too long. It occurs when the big toe angles toward the second toes. It is most common in women.

Bunions or Hallux Valgus is usually associated with overuse, ill-fitting shoes and trauma. It can be hereditary too. HV is very common, especially as you get older. The incidence of bunions at all ages is about 10% in women and 3% in men. It is more common in women who wear heels, men with flatfoot, and overweight men.

Additionally, in the elderly, a longer first metatarsal correlates with a more severe HV. Children who wear inadequately long footwear are more likely to suffer from HV. Among inheritable factors that may be associated with bunions or HV are hypermobility, metatarsal formula, and arch height.

A bunion is the prominence of the inner portion of the joint of the big toe because of poor foot mechanics. Bunions are usually caused by existing foot deformity - Flat Foot or Overpronation.

Heel Pain

I am a sport person and highly require my foot and legs fitness. Due to vigorous exercise I was suffering from heel pain since more than 6 months. Doctors advised me to use orthotic insoles. Got the information about Shapecrunch through the Internet and contacted in the given number. The phone call was responded by jatin who seemed to be a knowledgeable and cooperating guy. My brother who was visiting me from USA also had similar problem and was prescribed for same. We both ordered total 4 pairs of insoles and got them made in just 3-4 days. We both are using them since then and now are in great relief. Happy with the service and the product. The staff is very cooperating, they even showed up the process of making these. Product are also very good, useful and value for money. Highly recommend it.

Plantar Fasciitis

I had developed plantar fasciitis in June 2019 & had undergone physiotherapy, exercised for over two months with little improvement. Then I discovered Shapecrunch who recommended customised insoles after examination of my feet & underlying problem. I have flat feet. With regular use, my pain has almost vanished. I ordered a second pair recently which was delivered promptly.
What is needed is summerwear, i.e.sandals, chappals for wearing at home. I was surprised to receive a call today for this only which I look forward to.
Thank you, Shapecrunch; keep it up.


Plantar Fasciitis

I was suffering from acute Planter Fascitis (heel pain) and with 2-3 days of wearing these insoles the pain has vanished! This is an awesome product and I use it everyday for 8-10 hours.

Strongly recommend Shape crunch insoles to anyone with foot issues.
