Our Felt Bunion Shield is made of double-ply felt and is considered the "old reliable" of bunion pads. Great for patients who are not able to undergo bunion surgery.
Wear the pad directly against the skin. A small elastic band surrounding the great toe holds the pad in place. We suggest wearing hose or a sock to help keep the pad in position. Latex-free. Wash by hand with mild soapy water. Air dry. Universal right/left. 1/pkg.
Indications - The Felt Bunion Shield is used to prevent pain and shoe pressure associated with a bunion (also called hallux valgus).
Foot Care Tip! Bunion pain is caused by shoe pressure, mal-alignment of the great toe or both. The Felt Bunion Shield protects bunions from shoe pressure but does not re-align the big toe joint. Many patients who use a Felt Bunion Shield also use a Large/Firm Toe Separator to re-align the great toe. Additional products that relieve shoe pressure and align the great toe include our Bunion Spacer with Stay Put Loop and Toe Spacer Bunion guard Combo.
