Also called bunion, hallux valgus is a deviation of the big toe towards the outside. This frequent deformity causes pain when walking and requires special footwear. This is why Podexpert has selected a range of hallux valgus orthopedic sandals for you. Thanks to our expert brands of comfortable footwear (Neut, Podowell and Podartis), you can rediscover the pleasure of walking. Discover our hallux valgus sandals and enjoy your summer in complete serenity.
A summer shoe par excellence, the sandal is a light and airy model thanks to its many openings. Open or closed at the back, its maintenance is ensured by several wide straps on the instep.
Our models offer a positioning of the straps and a manufacturing process designed to limit the friction of your bunion against the shoe's walls. While a standard model generates painful pressure on the hallux valgus, our products guarantee you unequalled walking comfort.
Our range of hallux valgus sandals offers men and women models, from size 35 to 46. In leather or synthetic textile, in black or in color, our models will fit your style. For your outings in the city or in nature, forget sneakers and other closed shoes: our hallux valgus sandals will be your best allies for the summer.
To ensure the comfort of your feet in case of hallux valgus, a sandal must have several characteristics: flexibility of materials, sufficient width in the forefoot, optimal support and padded inner lining. The insole should also be removable so that it can be replaced with your custom orthotics if necessary.
A hallux valgus sandal offers a flexible part at the level of the big toe deformation. This allows the shoe to conform to the shape of the hallux valgus without compressing it. In addition, hallux valgus sandals are made of soft materials, usually leather or synthetic textiles. These stretchy models conform to the shape of your feet and allow you to walk for a long time without pain.
To avoid compressing your hallux valgus, the width of your comfort sandals must be adapted to your morphology. For this reason, our models are available in several widths (from H to M). This way, your foot has all the space it needs to spread out without causing pain to your hallux valgus. Also, make sure to choose a product with a large volume at the front of the foot and avoid wearing pointed toes.
To protect your hallux valgus, the comfort sandals offer a padded inner lining with no protruding seams. While a standard shoe tends to cause painful rubbing against its wall, our hallux sandals act as a protective cocoon for your aching feet. For added comfort, the breathable lining ensures that perspiration is wicked away, essential in hot weather.
The insoles and outsoles of a good, comfortable sandal provide optimal cushioning to absorb shock. The cushioning and breathable insole is removable. This allows you to easily replace them with your own orthotics, without losing volume inside the shoe.
In case of hallux valgus, a good support is essential to avoid rubbing the foot against the shoe. Our models have several wide straps equipped with Velcro to allow you to adjust the tightening.
