Those high heels that we love so much….

In fashion, opinion on January 4, 2011 at 8:03 pm

Ladies, there is never such a thing as having to many shoes.  And for some reason, we are absolutely in love with high heels. It seems that the higher they are the better.  But when it comes to discomfort, we really need to pay attention.   Dr. Oz  examines and provides advice for the shoes we love. 

 ” Alternate your heel height. High heels place 26% more pressure on your knees and up to 76% more pressure on the balls of your feet. Wearing them everyday can stiffen the Achilles tendons and permanently damage the muscles in your legs and joints in your feet. By alternating heels with various heights, you can lessen those effects.”

For all it’s worth even though we love heels, take heed to those aches and pains.  As the old adage says: take care of your feet and they will take care of you.
