The Killer Price Of Heels

It’s no mystery that we women sometimes choose what’s fashionable over what’s comfortable. Most women have had her moment of weakness in the shoe department. While walking through the mall, you’ll inevitably spot a pair of sexy high heels that you just know will look fabulous. Within moments of trying them on, it becomes clear that by the end of a long night, your feet will pay a painful price if you wear them.  A lot of ladies see the cuts and bumps, but what’s the real long-term damage? A true fashionista will swear by her heels, and, likely, will never give them up for good—but, with today’s heels higher than ever, we may want to take a moment to look down and see what our pretty pumps are really doing to our feet.

According to the American Osteopathic Organization, one in ten women wear high heels three days a week and one-third have actually fallen because of them (Yikes!) If you’re someone who wears heels often, the forced bend of your toes in an unnatural position leads anywhere from ingrown toenails to something more severe, like irreversible damage to the tendons in your legs. That cute pair of heels that make your legs look miles long, can cause a ‘pump bump.’ This is the knot you will end up seeing on the back of your heel, caused by the strap of your shoe. The pressure your feet will experience just from wearing 3-inch heels, increases to as much as 76 percent. The amount of pressure is what causes the swelling and plethora of blisters. In addition to hurting your feet, you may end up experiencing pain in your calves, knees and even your back.

I know this is scary info, ladies. There is, however, you can wear your heels without sacrificing your feet. Wear your heels in moderation. Even if you’re the biggest heel aficionado in the world who would never dream of wearing another type of shoe, give your poor feet a break and replace your go to sky high pumps with a chunkier heel. The thicker your heel, the more stable you’ll be, thus, eliminating more stress. Try not to wear heels if you know you’ll be on your feet for a long time. Keep an extra pair of cute, but comfortable, shoes on you or in your car when you go out. You should purchase shoe inserts as well. There are shoe inserts crafted specifically for high heels. Making these little tweaks to your wardrobe will help out not only your feet, but also your whole body. So, get out there and work your best pair of heels tonight and then tomorrow, give your feet a well-deserved break.

  • Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.
    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

  • A court has ruled that the building is illegal, and the €57 million ($64 million) Chateau Diter will now have to be knocked down.

  • Together with the whole thing which appears to be building within this specific subject material, a significant percentage of perspectives happen to be quite radical. Having said that, I appologize, but I do not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it stimulating none the less. It looks to us that your comments are actually not completely validated and in simple fact you are generally your self not even completely convinced of your argument. In any case I did appreciate examining it.

  • A lot of the things you assert happens to be supprisingly legitimate and that makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. Your article truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific issue goes. Nevertheless there is actually just one factor I am not necessarily too comfortable with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the core idea of the point, let me observe what all the rest of the readers have to point out.Well done.
