Aches and pains are just another depressing sign that your body is eventually going to break down. But if you could change the way you live now to spare yourself a few of those aching bones later, would you? Even if it meant toning down your scandalous footwear?
A study done by the National Institutes of Health revealed that chronic foot pain is exacerbated by shoes that don’t fit right, or that stress a particular part of your foot (four-inch heels, anyone?). Podiatrists suggest ditching wild shoes in favor of more sensible options. But guess what? Comfortable shoes are generally not cute.
You can buy inserts and orthotics to help with foot pain, but those can be expensive. Would you be willing to wear only sensible shoes for the rest of your life to keep foot problems at bay?
