Bunions can run in the family. They may be just one of many problems caused by weak or poor foot structure. Sometimes, they develop with arthritis. If one of your legs is longer than the other, you may develop a bunion on the big toe of the longer one.
Women are more likely to get them than men. That’s because wearing tight shoes — and especially high heels — pushes the foot bones into an unnatural shape over time.
