Tailor’s Bunion
Also known as a bunionette, is the minor dislocation of the 5th toe off the 5th metatarsal, exposing the end of the 5th metatarsal.

Cause
Use of inappropriately sized footwear, or footwear with narrow toe boxes, pushing the 5th toe out of natural alignment.

Signs and Symptoms
Common signs and symptoms associated with a tailor’s bunion include:

  • Local Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Tailor’s bunion-related symptoms can be exacerbated by the use of footwear with a narrow toe box.

Recovery
Most Tailor’s Bunions can be treated conservatively by restoring proper alignment of the 5th toe. Strategies include:

  • Avoidance of footwear that squeezes or pinches your forefoot.
  • Use of footwear that is widest at the ends of the toes, flat and flexible.
  • Correct Toes to help place the fifth toe in a proper alignment with the fifth metatarsal. With regular use in anatomically shaped footwear, Correct Toes can reduce Tailor’s Bunion Formation.
