National Bunion Day with Dr Zoe Williams

National Bunion Day with Dr Zoe Williams

TV's Dr Zoe Williams joins forces with Sole Bliss to celebrate National Bunion Day

Sole Bliss is delighted to sponsor National Bunion Day, which takes place on Thursday 24th September. 

The aim of National Bunion Day is to promote better foot health, remove the stigma of bunions, and encourage women to love their feet and their bodies. National Bunion Day also aims to provide practical advice for bunion sufferers.

This year, Sole Bliss has teamed up with TV’s Dr Zoe Williams to celebrate National Bunion Day. Dr Zoe is the resident doctor on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ and is one of the millions of women in the UK who suffers with bunions.

Sole Bliss asked Dr Zoe a few questions about bunions, foot health and, of course, shoes! Here’s what she had to say:

“Along with millions of other women I have bunions.

Many people don't really understand what bunions are or how they got them. For most of us it's actually an inherited tendency and it's certainly something that runs in my family. So genetics are usually the main cause, though poorly-fitting footwear can exacerbate the problem.

There's no denying that having bunions can be inconvenient, especially when it comes to finding shoes that fit well and are comfortable, but there shouldn’t be any shame or stigma and discussing bunions should not be taboo.

Rather than shame, we should be focussing on solutions, just like Sole Bliss, who provide super comfy footwear for people like me who have bunions.

We should celebrate our bodies for how wonderful they are and what they can do, bunions and all."

Hence why I am adding my voice and supporting National Bunion Day to squash the stigma."

Dr Zoe has been rocking our comfortable shoes for bunions for a little while now! Her most recent shoes from Sole Bliss are the Hero Trainers, in White Leather and Navy Leather. These fashionable trainers for bunion sufferers have been flying off the shelves in recent weeks. And with good reason! Every trainer features Sole Bliss’ award-winning Comfort Technology, which includes the ingenious Bunion Bed stretch panel, an anatomically contoured footbed, and a deep and wide toe-box.

Handmade in Italy, they also boast an on-trend chunky white sole, a stylish zip for easy entry and metallic laces and accents, making them the most fashionable trainer for bunion sufferers too!
