This just in: high heels not comfortable

    I know there are some footwear aficionados on this board, so I had to post this lovely graphic. I'm not sure exactly why this is telling high heels wearers, except for a technical breakdown of their discomfort. Also, that you could get a ogre-ish bony growth near your big toe. Enjoy!

    Everyone needs to have feet like that.

    The growth in the bone does happen. Most women who wear heels have that enlarged bone, but unless the heels are not broken in, it is not noticed. If I wear a new pair of shoes, that's the first place that gets agitated.

    Two things I have done regularly--maybe 4-5 times a week--for a very very long time: running, and wearing very high heels.

    Without hesitation, 99% of any physical pain or suffering I have ever experienced has been the result of running, not high heels.

    Wearing high heels well is an art form...some people can hit a fastball, some can draw portraits, some can wear heels.

    It didn't show the key effects on the body heels have: They make your calves and ass look fantastic.

    In that spirit, the Babe Ruth of the high heel:

    Interestingly, although I used to occasionally wear heels, it was my podiatrist who recommended that I not only wear heels, but that I wear high ones, and wear them as much as possible. I have very severe plantar fasciitis. High heels are the only kind of shoes that don't hurt my feet. Seriously. I don't have any weird growths or bunions. And yes, it is possible to find comfortable super high heels.

    1. I'm tall enough that I don't need the extra height. (I've been forbidden to wear them by my SIL-to-be in my brother's upcoming wedding, which I am a bridesmaid.)

    2. I've worn them once since blowing my ankle out 20 years ago. Just once.

    3. More power to the rest of my female SportsJournalists.commers, but I will never, ever willingly wear heels as long as I live. For me, heels are a whole new definition of pain.

    There's a "NSFW in the SportsJournalists.com of the 50s" joke in here somewhere.

    Yes! I can walk 70 blocks in heels, no problem....but in flats, my feet will stay sore for days.

    As for what heels do for your body: They push your ass up, your hips forward, lengthen your legs, make you put your shoulders back, and force you to walk very deliberately.

    Of course, if your body won't cooperate with the physics of heels, you end up looking like a hermit crab. Worth mentioning.
