A bunion (Hallux Valgus) is the condition that the big toe is angled excessively towards the second toe and a bony lump appears on the side of the big toe. Eventually, the area gets inflamed, and the entire joint becomes still and painful. As the condition gets worse, the big toe rubs on the second toe, or pushes it up out of place, thus the toes are deformed (hammer toe) and calluses are formed.
Helps with sprain stabilisation, foot pain (metatarsalgia) and heel pain.
Designed by Podiatrist Emmanouil Arvanitakis. The pack contains one left and one right foot sock.
Wash at 30°. We recommend replacement after 6 months.
