It’s a question many women wonder but few wish to ask – just how damaging are your high heels? Well the results are in and it’s not pretty. So if you have more heels than Carrie Bradshaw and just can’t bare to pair your skinny jeans with *glup* FLATS then you should probably turn away now. Ignorance is bliss in this case.
The American Podiatric Medical Association say that high heels are the most common cause of foot ache amongst women. Even worse, they reckon that prolonged high heel wearing could affect the muscles and tendons in you foot and calf, putting you in danger of ankle injury and back pain. So all that work you’ve done on improving your posture in pilates class is undone on Saturday nights.
However there is a shining light at the end of this very squat tunnel. A lower, chunky heel will reduce risk of injury and improve ankle stability. So fashion is actually helping you out this season with its chunky heel trend.
But even with all this very convincing scientific research who is going to say no to a pair of Louboutins? I always had an inexplicable mistrust of people who like feet anyway.
