High Heels 101

by FootSourceMD

Lately there have been several articles preaching the dangers of women’s high heels.

As we all know, this is not new news. Below you will find an advertisement from a newspaper published in 1917 warning women of high heel dangers.
According to the ad, high heel footwear “buckles up the toes, producing painful corns.” Today we know that this isn’t the only foot condition high heels may cause. Further, the advertisement instructs women not to remove the corns by “cutting them out” for this could lead to infection and “an awful death from lockjaw.”

High heels have been responsible for foot conditions such as bunions, hammertoes, corns and calluses. Foot and ankle physicians recommend that women wear dress shoes with heels that are 2 inches or less, have ample arch support and a roomy toe box.
