    When I don't dance, I try not to wear as much 'heels', mostly flat or flip flop with nice cushion.
    And if you're serious about dance, then dancer feet is almost a by-product that comes with it naturally, all we can do is to try our best to take good care of them, then the rest of it 'que sera sera' lol

    I felt bad for your foot, I hope you can find a solution to make it look better.

    if women didn't wear heels while dancing....would they have ugly feet? bunions are caused mostly from high heels right?

    partly.. it's also the "pointy" shape of the toe box that forces the big toe inwards

    And some genetics.

    my father has a bunion. he's never worn high heels in his life.
    alas, I'm pretty sure it's genetic. :(

    This. My mother has been allergic to high heels as long as I can remember, but her bunion has still gotten more pronounced. I hope that, God willing, I dodged that part of the gene pool.

    The shape of our feet is hereditary.
    Wearing ill fitting shoes that create bunions with certain foot shapes (wide or even "normal" in the forefoot) is not hereditary.
    I understand, though, that there are exceptions.
