Bunions affect athletes as well as people from all walks of life. That’s why we wanted to develop a product that can help the largest number of people – no matter what activity you enjoy.
A bunion is a medical condition also known as hallux valgus. It is a hard bump that develops in the joint at the base of your big toe. It develops when the bones move out of their natural positioning, causing the nail-end of your big toe to move towards your other toes. This forces the joint at the base of your big toe to jut out and away from your foot causing your foot to become misshapen.
Bunion pain can be unbearable and can interfere with work and daily tasks. RiptGear® bunion sleeves can help relieve pain by using gentle compression against your jutting big toe joint and cushioning your bunion from your inner shoe. To further relieve bunion pain, you may need to change to wider shoes and possibly wear shoe orthotics.
Bunions are a painful condition, but they do not have to be debilitating. Bunion compression sleeves will not completely cure bunions, but they can help reduce pain.
A bunion is a deformity that develops on your foot at the base of your big toe. It causes the joints to fall out of place and your big toe starts to push towards your smaller toes. Three main factors cause bunions to develop:

Bunion corrector sleeves provide three main functions:
Bunion correctors will not permanently fix your condition, but they can help to reduce friction and pain.
If you suffer from bunion pain, you know how frustrating it can be to complete even the simplest daily tasks. At RiptGear® we designed our bunion corrector sleeves to effectively address the pain and help keep you mobile.
Most bunions do not require medical treatment and can be treated at home. However, if you experience any of the following conditions, it is best to see your doctor or podiatrist. They may even refer you to an orthopedic foot specialist if your condition is particularly bad.
Bunion Pain at Night – Many people state that their bunion pain is the most noticeable at night. Wearing toe separators, bunion sleeves, or foot splits while you sleep may help. This may also help with morning foot pain which can make getting out of bed difficult.
Bunion Pain Treatment – Treating bunion pain so that it does not interfere with day-to-day functions is a priority for most people who suffer from bunions. Fortunately, there are a few foot exercises you can do to help stave off the pain. Here are 5 exercises that can help with bunion and foot pain:
If you are an avid runner, you don’t want bunion pain to keep you home. Unfortunately, bunion pain can be a particularly painful condition for runners. Here are 5 things you can do to help control bunion pain when running:
When bunions first start to develop, you may or may not experience any symptoms. Early on, symptoms can be mild and include periodic foot pain, or slight rubbing against your shoe at the site of the bunion.
As the bunion develops, pain can progressively become more constant and you may notice that stopping and resting does not provide relief.
You may start to see calluses and blisters form due to repeated friction inside your shoe. Swelling, stiffness, and redness can also occur as the soft tissue becomes damaged. Gout can also cause similar symptoms, so checking with your doctor is always advisable.
Walking with bunions can cause severe and constant pain. The motion of walking can aggravate the joint of your big toe if it is already in an abnormal position due to your bunion.
Your big toe carries much of your weight and helps with overall balance. Bunions can interfere with this and limit your movement and mobility.
As your bunions grow, they further, negatively affect foot function. Suddenly, movements such as walking are accompanied by pain. As a reaction to the pain, you may adjust your stride or hold yourself unnaturally. Adapting your body’s natural positioning to an unnatural one will only lead to additional problems and pain in the future.
Bunions affect the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint of your big toe. This joint moves every time you step, and the repeated movement causes bunions to grow larger and become more painful as time goes by.
At RiptGear® our goal is to help you combat pain and discomfort. We take our commitment seriously and developed our bunion corrector sleeves to help as many people as possible.
Our bunion correctors have a built-in gel pad that covers and protects your bunion. We also designed them to include a toe separator that gently keeps your big toe in alignment and away from your other toes. Additionally, our bunion sleeves provide mild compression which increases blood flow. Increased blood flow is known to help decrease pain and numbness.
Where does a bunion develop on your foot?
A bunion is a localize bump that develops at the base of your toe. This bump, or enlargement, is often the result of bone misalignment and tissue inflammation. A bunion occurs at the base of your toe, in either the bone and tissue of your big toe (bunion) or small toe (bunionette).
Unfortunately, bunions are a progressive foot deformity that do not go away on their own. However, it is often possible to treat them effectively so that they don’t interfere with your usual activities. Splints, bunion sleeves, and shoe orthotics can gently push your toes back to reduce the progression, but they cannot reverse the situation. The only way to permanently correct a bunion deformity is through surgery.
The most common treatment for bunions is pain relievers, cushioning pads, shoe orthotics, toe separators, and cold compresses. Sometimes an injection of cortisone into the bunion can reduce your pain, tenderness, and swelling.
Customer feedback shows that using bunion correctors can help reduce pain and help slow the progression of bunions. However, they are a long-term, and gradual way to manage your discomfort and pain. Also, they will not fix the problem permanently. RiptGear® bunion corrector sleeves will gently push your big toe towards its proper positioning and straighten the joint. The attached toe separator will keep your toe more properly aligned which can help halt the progression of your bunion.
Along with wearing RiptGear® bunion corrector socks, you can also implement a variety of methods to help control your bunion pain:
