Using revolutionary 3D scanning technology, researchers at North London’s Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital have created an image of a contorted, misshapen female foot in a high-heeled shoe. For the first time ever, the animation, which was compiled from hundreds of 2D scans of patients’ feet, allows doctors to see the effects of wearing high heels “in real time,” providing irrefutable evidence of the long-term damage caused by wearing such shoes.

It's obvious heels are bad for your feet long term. I wear heels often, always at work, uni, or going out for dinner or something, but usually wear comfy shoes aside from that. My mom was one of those women who ALWAYS wore heels and her feet are in really bad shape now.

In Moscow I saw a lot of older women with their back curved weirdly. I always wondered whether that had to do with excessive heel wearing, but I doubt that back in the commie days that happened much....

I can't understand why women feel the need to put on high heels with such absurdly high heels that you just feel pity and pain at the same time by looking at them. Kinda sad...

Yeah, men always say this kind of thing. And then who do they go out with?

Because men (or women attracted to women) have this instinct of automatically turning their heads towards the click click click of heels. There's few moments more disappointing than looking towards said sound, and finding the woman in question has those ugly kitten heels or worse, one of those flats that emulate the sound of heels but of course aren't heels.

This is only acceptable if you're old or dealing with kids. Otherwise, at least in my opinion, either wear tall heels or no heels at all; there's lot of gorgeous flat shoes if you don't like heels. This middle ground thing isn't flattering.

Actually high heels are not necessarily painful. I wear usually 10-12 cm heels, on a daily basis, because I am tiny (nice word for short 1.55) and I have shoes that I can wear for even 8-10 hours at work or when going out without any problem.

But one has to be careful how she chooses them. I would never wear uncomfortable shoes.

I'm 182 cm but I love heels, so I still wear them. I wish I could find shorter heels but...all these shorter women want to be much taller so it's either add another 10 cm or go without, typically. I alternate between all or nothing.

I just had to double check to make sure I did the proper conversion to cm. How tall are you? Or, how vertically challenged are you? lol

The curved back, or Widow's Hump, is the result of osteoporosis of the vertebrae. As the ventral portion of the vertebrae collapses from lack of m**** the forward curve develops.
