Wearing high heels may be fashionable and make you feel taller, confident and sexier. It’s the gold standard in women’s footwear for everything from the board room to the red carpet.
High-heeled shoes can cause a plethora of foot problems while impairing stability and increasing the risk of injury. Leg, back, and foot pain are among some of the more common complaints. Long-term use can even cause structural changes in the foot itself, leading to bunions, hammertoe, and other conditions that may require surgical correction.
And Japanese women are tired of having to wear uncomfortable high heels to work. More than 19,000 people have signed an online petition to ban employers from requiring women to wear high heels in the workplace.
