Backless shoes may be in style, but their risks aren’t worth the fashion statement. Because backless shoes don’t offer stabilized support, your toes may try to compensate by clenching and grabbing on tight to keep them on. Curling your toes in this manner can lead to hammertoes. And, because backless shoes tap against your heels with every step you take, they can cause broken skin and calluses too.*
Backless shoes can cause hammertoes, calluses, and even ankle sprains. Avoid these risks by wearing supportive shoes that cushion your feet and protect your heels.
