3D Scanner Reveals High Heels Will Permanently Mutilate Your Feet
Shopping In High Heels May Stop You From Splurging: Study
What it reveals is sort of terrifying.Consultant orthopedic surgeon Andy Goldberg explains: When youre in heels your entire body weight is going through the two tiny little bones going under the big toe, which canclearly lead to problems. The scan also shows that wearing heels causes the toes to curl over, which doesnt cause problems short term, but after years of wearing heels could lead to fixed clawing and intense pain. Goldberg concludes, For many years our feet have had to fit into someone elses ideas of our shoes, rather than making shoes to fit our feet, and that paradigm really has to change. Further study results showed 57% of the hospitals female patients had admitted to experiencing severe foot pain as a result of regularly wearing uncomfortable shoes. 86% admitted that they found difficulty in finding shoes that could comfortably fit their feet. Hopefully we dont count as heavy users, but this is almost making us look upon the impending peacocking fest known as New York Fashion Week with the same fear Will Smiths family looked upon the star formerly known as Hannah Montana. <br>Source: http://www.styleite.com/media/study-reveals-damaging-effects-of-high-heels/

There is an established link between high heels and foot pain, but for the first time we are able to see the effect of such shoes on feet in real time. In moderation high heels are fine; its when worn day in day out that problems could develop. In the video, the woman whose foot has been scanned in a high heeled shoe had come in complaining of a painful bunion. The scan was able to reveal exactly what position the woman puts her foot in while wearing her shoes of choice. It reveals that she has been putting most of her weight on two pea-sized bones beneath her big toe, known as the sesamoids, and that while in the shoe, her other toes are being forced into claw-like positions. <br>Source: http://www.wetpaint.com/moms/articles/2013-08-29-whats-happening-foot-high-heels
