Warmer Weather = Higher Heeled Shoes

With warmer weather approaching, us women are starting to put our winter boots away and take out our sexy high heeled shoes. High heeled shoes can create a sexier, more flattering figure by tilting the hips, accentuating the bust-line and making the legs look longer. However, high heels can cause a great deal of discomfort: High heels can cause calf pain, heel pain, Bunions, corns, calluses, Ankle Sprain, neuromas, Hammertoes, pump bumps and pain to the ball of foot (Metatarsalgia (foot pain in ball).

 

How do I encourage women to wear more sensible shoes? It's almost impossible. I do tell my well-heeled patients to limit their time spent in heels-never all day, just for a few hours. I also instruct them to buy shoes at the end of the day that fit comfortably across the widest part of the foot and wear gel or silicone insoles for a comfortable cushioning effect as well.
