    I have a mild tailor's bunion on my left foot and a worse one on my right. It's never really bothered me until now when I'm starting to run completely barefoot and not in sandals (I get pain at the metatarsal head). I'm just looking for advice in how I should go about fixing it. In the first photo you can see the difference between my feet when they're relaxed, and in the second you can see I have good abduction mobility -- my toes just won't stay there!

    Thanks in advance.

    you have great feet for barefoot with the nice gap between 1st and 2nd toe and ability to abduct 1st and adduct 5th.

    get a pair of Correct Toes as well as do some of the mobilization stretches on Dr Ray McClanahan's site. this will help alignment and correct bunion. also wear WIDE toebox shoes. adapt gradually to pure barefoot...it is different.

    all the best in the journey.
