Foot fashion and foot health

Everyone knows skirts go well with stilettos, but did you know hammertoes, calluses and bunions are frequent companions as well?

Wearing uncomfortable shoes can have serious consequences and may even require surgical treatment; however, anyone who believes “beauty knows no pain” should at least try to prevent potential injuries. Always have a second pair of comfortable shoes around, in case you are confronted with a cobble stone street or are doing daily chores. Consider reducing the heel height to one or two inches and ask your sales associate for chunky and kitten heels.

Fashion lovers should regularly visit a podiatrist to screen for insidious foot and ankle deformities. Check out remedies for pain, such as toe spacers and bunion pads. Don’t let style destroy the natural beauty of your feet. And don’t forget: you won’t need heels at the next pool party anyway.
