Walk a Mile in Someone Else’s Heels:
What happens to your feet when you slip on your favorite high-heels?
By: Michael Shea, MD
Although I cannot comment from personal experience, high-heeled shoes have become a modern-day necessary evil. My caveman ancestors first put on rabbit-skin pelts to protect their feet from the environment. As man evolved, so did his shoes, to allow better functioning and protection, such as snowshoes and chain-mail slippers. The first high-heels can be traced to early Persian horse riders. The high-heel provided increased stability of the foot in the stirrup and prevented it from slipping forward. Functionality of shoes gave way to fashion. In the sixteenth century, royalty began wearing heels to make themselves appear taller and more prestigious. This gave way to a person of authority or wealth being known as “well heeled.” Read more here
