High Heels

As you know, your heel part withstands your body weight, but if you wear high heels your weight is partially transferred from heel to toe and ball-of-the foot. This further produces excess stress on your bones, muscles and tendon thus affecting your walking posture. This slowly gives rise to Achilles tendonitis, bunions, fallen arches etc. High heels also directs the centre heap of your body frontward and your vertebrae to bend backwards to compensate. This thus leaves you with back pains all day long.

Though increased heel height is insecure to foot health, the fame of these shoes never goes down. Wearing them not only gives a pretty look to your feet but also gains you a seductive appearance. There are certain things to follow to enjoy wearing this footwear. Those are listed below as follows;

  • Don't wear this footwear often. Wear them on some special occasions where you spend less time standing on your feet wearing high heels.
  • It is wise to prefer 4 cm heel height for casual wear and 5 cm for occasional wear to ensure full comfort.
  • Prefer high heel sandals with straps on the instep that prevent sliding of your feet forward thus reducing the stress on your toes.
  • Never walk long distances in this footwear as they may leave your feet with blisters and foot pains.

Low Heels
