The young ladies of the month — the graduates — sport the traditional white dresses under their scholarly cap and gown. But if your eyes stray to their feet, you may gasp. These young adults of today are strutting in shoes that may end up crippling their feet.

Laura, a Bull Run Foot Clinic assistant, graduated last week. She understands the consequences of high heels, however, being fashionable was more important. Her shoes, as well as the footwear for 95% of the ladies on the stage, were terrifying. Straps, and platforms with 4 to 6 inch spikes were the style for the evening.

The Washington Post reported today that high heels can put stress on the feet, ankles, knees, and back triggering pain throughout the body.

Laura promised me that the weapons on her feet will not be a common practice — this was a special occasion. However, for the ladies that wear them daily, reconsider your footwear. Women’s foot surgeries contribute to $3.5 billion in annual spending to combat the after effects of high heels.
