Did you know that women are affected by foot problems four times more than men? The unsupportive shoes women tend to wear, such as high heels, could be to blame. One way to avoid foot problems caused by heels is to alternate heel heights to ensure that one muscle group isn’t being overused.*
You can still wear high heels and avoid foot problems by alternating heel heights often. Other suggestions include soft insoles to help absorb impact, only wearing heels on days with limited walking and standing, and stretching before and after wears.
