High Heels, Pumps, Sandals, Slippers Bad for Feet

I think there are plenty of articles out there that relate (especially) high heels with feet injuries and this post is no exception. There is increased risk of hind-foot pain for women that wore the heels and the pumps because these caused stress on the ball of the foot and squeeze the toes together. Over time, the wearer may have smaller calf muscles and feet that curve inward. There are cosmetic surgeries that shave down the bones of toes and Botox injections to loosen the muscles pulling on the toe!!!

There is a list of bad, moderate and good footwear:
  • Poor: high heels, pumps, sandals and slippers.
  • Average: hard- or rubber-soled shoes and work boots
  • Good: athletic and casual sneakers. Compelling reason that everyone should wear these even to work and formal functions and while we are at it, lets wear jeans and t-shirts, too! :P
Hmm... I don't suppose these and these weird heels without heels help either.
