Killer High Heels

Why do you think high heels are labeled as "killer"? Probably some would associate it with killer looks. Something positive. However, it's a misconception.

High heels do have an ill effect on people, most especially women. Yes, it adds some height and makes a girl feel and look different with the way she walks but it is something that comes with a price.

I'm sharing what I've learned from my curious reading about this topic not because I don't see that much need of wearing high heels but just so women who are not aware will have an understanding as well as facts. Many could be underestimating the damages caused by high heels aside from surely getting sore feet.

High-heeled footwear

Pumps
Stilettos
Wedges


Negative Effects to Health
- Foot and tendon problems
- Knee and back problems
- Nerve problems
- Calluses and heel pain
- Swelling of the joint at the base of the big toe
- Ingrown toe nails, etc.


Don't be discouraged, here are some tips you can follow if you can't help wearing stilettos and the like:
  • Wear high heels for a limited time.
  • Alternately use high and low-heeled footwear.
  • Massage or soak your feet in a lukewarm water when you get home from work, party and any other activity which made you wear those uncomfortable foot wear. Not only will it ease the pain but your feet need some pampering too.
Remember: Feet are not made for heels.
