Why do people get bunions?

People get bunions partly because they had the wrong parents and partly becasue they wear the wrong shoes.

The causes of bunions in the feet are generally considered to be a hereditary predisposition combined with the wearing of shoes that are too tightly fitted.

There is not a lot you can do about your parents (the inherited predisposition), but there is a lot you can do about the fitting of your shoes.
