I came across a couple of interesting (i.e. disturbingly stupid) things today. One is a Gallop Poll that says, "37 percent of the women surveyed said they would continue to wear high heels, even though they did not think them comfortable." I wonder how many would say that they would continue to wear them knowing that by the age of 40 they would be crippled? The second thing was an answers.yahoo.com Q/A I stumbled upon where an apparently young woman asked whether she should listen to people who are saying high heels are bad for her and stupid. The answer voted the "Best Answer" says, "Heels look great on any woman. Like others say ignore them." Generally, I find good information at this site. Not this time.
I'm rather fond of women, and not really a foot person, but I don't find crippled feed attractive. Nor do I find bunions appealing, or women who can barely walk without pain. On top of that, despite all the hype to the contrary, I don't think high heels improve the look of legs.
The facts are:
- High heels don't make your legs look better or improve your overall appearance.
- High heels will damage your feet, legs, and spine. Most women over 40 who wore high heels most of their lives have serious problems.
If you do something continuously that you know will cause you major problems down the road, you are being stupid. Stop it!
