    I ordered a pair of these after seeing the review here and sadly I didn’t like them. Maybe the wide width is better. They did fit my heels, which almost never happens, but it was actually digging into the back of my heels. And they still pinched my bunion…the search continues!

      Oh shoot. Thanks for the feedback, though. I wish I could try every shoe, so often rely on multiple reviews. I’m sorry they didn’t work for you.

    The Gessica was too tight on my bunion, too. For a ballet flat, the only shoe I’ve found that’s bunion-friendly and stylish is Sizzle, from Trotters

    I live in mainland Europe and it s-u-c-k-s for bunion shoes. I usually search the internet high and low for anything that could comfort my feet and does not look like “babushka” shoe. Bunions are in the family for me and we all have the same problem. I also have wide feet! Feels like living nightmare.
    Many of the suggestions dont ship to Europe/want a crazy amount for shipping.
    I dont like to buy shoes online, but what can I do?
    In my search I have saw some new brands – one is in the UK this website I have not seen them mentioned here on this blog. Anyone tried them before? They seem to have good reviews, but I dont want to get my hopes up…
