Don't you just love summer wear? Especially the sandals! I'm giddy about painted toes and the endless variety of strapping seasonal footwear. I just can't wear them all. Lord knows I've tried. Ok, so how many times have you seen women walking across a busy street, tip-toeing in pain to beat the light and get to the other side? Without admitting pain, stiletto heel wearers maintain posture and composure at all costs. I know their feet are killing them and they know their feet are killing them. Let's get real for a moment.
So, what's the real damage to feet if you constantly wear 4-6 inch heels, all day, everyday?
Medical experts say that drinking in stilettos can cause the most foot damage. Where coordination and balance are impaired after chugging down a few cocktails, lots of twisted ankles and fractures have been reported at major hospitals. The stunning stilettos contribute to knee and back pain as well. After all, you're cramming those little puppies into a narrow space. With cramped toes, how can you hold your balance? Huh??? Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, and it's twice as common in women. Experts also say that the use of heels is a likely reason.
I say just point your toes in your flats and call it a day. I deeply admire those that can stand tall and look sexy in those high heels. But, I think I'd rather have pretty toes than men whistling at me. (Well, not really).
