theyre too high

im reading this book about midwives in england in the 1950s
interesting novel but with a lot of history embedded in the story line

in one chapter one of the characters a midwife goes out with
a group of her friends to party
shes working and training with a chapter of nuns that train

(these things look like the rear end of a wasp dont they
that what it feels like if a women steps on your foot )

so she dresses up and wears these high heels with those long heels
she talks about cramming her toes down in the toe part
suffering all night
the worse was walking on the cobblestone sidewalks and streets
of london as they did the 1950 version of clubing
a night of misery she had
with her feet akilling her

she told the story of a well known female model at the time
that actually had some of her toes amputated so she could
fit into these high heels and walk down the runways with them
sees a little extreme to me

im sorry this can not i repeat can not be good for your
just looking i see potential for
ingrown toenails
bunions i mean bad bunions
long term problems with plantar fasciitis
if youve not had that one then youre lucky
i suffered withit with for years
and no
i didnt wear high heels
achilles tendonitis another curse that can rank up there
with plantar fasciitis
stress fractures just look at the picture and you can see
where that would occur
nerve damage
mortons neuroma that occurs in the nerve bundle at the
point of maximum pressure
the treatment is steroid shots surgery pad in shoes or
just dont wear those dang high heels

these high heels have made a lot of podiatrist wealthy

none of these things are good
they all are painful
the treatments are long term some are painful some have
significant side effects like the steroids and the nsaids to
take for the inflammation

i know when you research the history of high heels that
the only person that could have designed these things
is a man
no woman would ever think this up and inflict pain and
discomfort on so many women

the solution and best treatment for all these ailments
is to wear shoes that are more down to the earth
maybe the cave women did it the best
going barefoot and wearing sandals

if men had to wear these things they wouldnt be available

its time these shoes are brought back down to earth shoe levels
