We thought it would be nice to write a post about Hallux Valgus, since few people know this term and our shoes are created to ensure the comfort of those who suffer from Hallux Valgus. Keep reading to find out more! ✨

What is Hallux Valgus?

Hallux Valgus is the medical term for what is best known as bunions, a deviation of the base of the big toe outwards, in other words, a bone deformity. This can cause discomfort when wearing shoes, walking and everyday activity since friction occurs between the foot (Hallux Valgus) and the shoe at every step.

What are the causes?

This deformation can be due to several causes such as heredity, shoes with heels, shoes that are too narrow and have a pointed toe, flat feet, etc. It can even be due to other diseases like polyarthritis, poliomyelitis or other rheumatological diseases.

What are the signs and symptoms?

  • Redness and inflammation

  • Presence of horn on the side of the big toe

  • Irritation at the place of deformation

  • Pain in the big toe joint

  • Difficulty finding shoes that do not exert pressure on the feet

Luckily, Glamille shoes are here for you! One of our priorities at Glamille is, of course, to create shoes for you with incomparable comfort and that can be worn despite the presence of Hallux Valgus. Indeed, we take care to have your favorite shoes made of stretchy materials that leave sufficient space for your feet and that do not put any pressure on them.

Did you know that the creator of Glamille has been working in the field of orthopedic footwear for more than 15 years? It goes without saying that she has a great experience and that she can, thanks to it, find the best solutions to offer you stylish shoes without compromising comfort.

How can we say that our shoes are so comfortable?

Following the creation of the shoe (choice of materials, choice of colors, choice of embossed, etc.), we receive a sample of each style to approve before launching the complete production. Our designer wears each of the styles in her daily life in order to evaluate the comfort and the adjustments to be made if necessary. Glamille creations are therefore put to the test: business trips overseas, several kilometers of walking a day, long days at the office, events, evening and weekend recreation... And they pass our comfort test every time!

Want to get a pair of Glamille shoes, but are not sure what size you should choose? Don't panic! We offer a free delivery and return service, so it will be our pleasure to take back any returns and send you the right size if necessary. Your satisfaction matters a lot to us.

Je viens de découvrir votre existence. J’ai une difficulté à me chausser ayant un hallux mais pas valgus mais rigidus soit sur le dessus de l’articulation du gros orteil gauche (vs sur le côté avec valgus)
Ayant besoin d’espace sur la « hauteur » afin d’éviter une pression sur le hallux, croyez vous que vos chaussures ( ou certains modèles) pourraient me convenir?
En ce moment, le seul soulier qui convient est un espadrille de couse ( dessus en tissu flexible) et l’été des sandales type Birkenstock.
Merci de prendre un moment pour me répondre.
