Bunion Fit Technology
Recommended for: last dedicated to women with the Allux Valgus
From the beginning Asolo’s philosophy has been to develop innovative and technologically advanced footwear with great looks. Asolo pays particular attention to the natural flex of the foot while also making sure that performance and comfort of its footwear is maximized.
For this reason, the Asolo collection has been developed using 16 different lasts, each one with specific anatomical features sculpted to match defined user criteria and fit characteristics. The last are broadly defined by men’s, women’s and child’s fit, but also include regular, wide and bunion fit option in key styles.
Following our fit philosophy, Asolo engineered and developed a completely dedicated woman last with a particular focus on allux valgus. The word bunion comes from the Latin "bunio," meaning enlargement, and the medical term for the condition is "hallux valgus." About 10-25% of people have bunions, which can make your feet so sore that you can barely walk.
Bunions can lead to difficulties finding properly fitting footwear and may force a person to buy a larger size shoe to accommodate the width of the bunion. If the bunion deformity becomes severe enough, the foot can hurt in different places even without the constriction of shoes. It is then considered as being a mechanical function problem of the forefoot.
