They could lead to bunions or corns

(HealthDay News) -- Shoes that are too snug can cause some serious and painful problems, including bunions and corns.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says other potential problems from tight shoes include:

  • Toes that cross over from lack of room.
  • A curling hammertoe.
  • An ingrown toenail that's been pushed into the skin.
  • Blisters or sores, which can be especially dangerous among people with diabetes.
