A new study has found #HighHeels may cause permanent injury, with most women suffering pain in just over an hour of wearing them. Ill-fitted #Shoes can cause long-term damage including arthritis, stress fractures, and trapped nerves, which may even require surgery. Researchers at The #College of #Podiatry, #UK, found that half of #Women have suffered foot problems after wearing uncomfortable shoes, but 43 percent will suffer in the name of #Fashion. One third of women also admitted that they had worn heels they knew did not fit, simply because they “looked nice” and could not find a pair in their size.
As many as 28 percent women said they have resorted to dancing bare foot in a nightclub or bar when they could not put up with the pain any longer. One third have been forced to remove their shoes and #Walk home barefoot
The study of 2,000 #British adults also found that only 12 per cent of #Men have put up with stylish but uncomfortable shoes.
This could explain why women are likely to have more issues with their feet, and are twice as likely to suffer from corns, cracked heels and bunions. 90 per cent of women have experienced problems and 20 per cent admitted they are “embarrassed” by their #Feet while 12 per cent are so ashamed they cover them constantly. As many as 19 per cent of women have refused to seek #Help despite these problems, because they believed their foot complaint was unimportant.
