Ladies we all love a good high heel, and if you’re anything like myself the higher the heel the better. Of all the shoes I have in my closet, about 95% of them are high heels, that says a lot about my obsession. But have you ever stopped to think that wearing sky high stilettos can have a negative effect on your body?
Last week Sarah Jessica Parker revealed that she’s giving up on wearing high heels. The actress who made Manolo Blahnik a household name with her role as Carrie on “Sex and the City,” is giving up on high heels. I couldn’t believe that the woman who is probably responsible for many women’s obsession with high heels, is throwing in the towel! How can this be?
Well Sarah says she got a negative report from her foot doctor, whom recommended she stop wearing the shoes that helped make her character famous.
“For ten or so more years, I literally ran in heels. I worked 18-hour days and never took them off. I wore beautiful shoes, some better made than others, and never complained,” says Sarah.
She added “I went to a foot doctor and he said ‘your foot does things it shouldn’t be able to do. That bone there, you’ve created that bone. It doesn’t belong there.”
I’ve always known that heels had some negative effects on your posture, and the bones in your feet, but I never guessed it could get to the point where you may eventually have to stop wearing them! Ouch! Would you give up your heels for your health?
