Walk this way — very carefully

Posted on: October 22, 2012

Heels and hemlines are high this Homecoming Dance Season for Seniors.  My daughter, who is 5 foot 9 inches towered to 6 foot when she walked out the door in her shoes.  I cringed when she paraded around in the mini-mini dress, but hey, all the girls were wearing them.  But the shoes — how do they walk in those gigantic heels?  Very carefully.

The American Podiatric Medical Association reports that if you must wear heels choose a chunky heel with no more than two inches for better support to avoid pain or injury.  Apparently, none of these young ladies followed that advice. California Podiatric Medical Association notes that women have four times more foot problems than men.  High heels are the main culprit.

Only one smart young man — surrounded in a line up of amazons — wore comfy shoes.  I guess he will dance the night away in his casual, flat, laced shoes.

Are you a victim of foot fashion?

Impressing! I can’t even imagine dancing in shoes like that?!
With that said, you already understand that I’ve never been good with heels.. I had a period in my late teens/early 20’s when I REALLY wished I was a high heel kind of girl. But no, it never happened and I am actually happy it didn’t – I LOVE my flats and sandals (and running shoes, of course!) and I think my feet love me for them too :)

Your feet are definitely thanking you!

I’m only 20 and just can’t put up with high heels, as a slightly clumsy person with a bad back and hip, they can send me flying. It’s flats all the way for me!

I always have a back up pair of flats in my car or purse.The heels never stay on for the entire event!
