foot pain when hiking

I’m taking my new hiking boots to be “stretched”. Which of these foot problems is motivating my radical action (which might shorten the life of my expensive footwear)?

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoe
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Plantar Fasciitis (can lead to heel spur)
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Hallux Limitus
  • Nail Fungus
  • Answer? ….

    Bunions. Mine are not genetic, rather built up after injuries.

    Bunion pain is my biggest problem as a hiker. Any advice for me? (Leave a comment below.)

    1. You have made a great point in having comfortable and supportive foot wear for hiking. Foot pain when hiking can be from spinal nerve root irritation especially in your case where you have a bunion and likely that you will favor this foot. It is important that your hiking is not over burdened with carrying too much baggage around. Hope that you have a safe hiking.
