Why are women more likely to develop bunion symptoms than men?

 

A:

Women are more likely to develop bunion symptoms than men mostly because of the footwear many women choose to wear. Women tend to wear narrow shoes that crowd the toes and put a lot of pressure on the feet, like high heels. This is not to say that the shoes alone cause the bunions to develop. There are usually underlying causes, such as an inherited foot shape. The types of shoes a person chooses to wear can make the problem worse, though, and can cause a bunion to progress faster, leading to the development of bunion symptoms.
