Women's Shoes and Foot Pain

Doctors say high-heel shoes can hurt the backs of your feet, especially as you get older.

Researchers looked at 33-hundred foot exams of men and women.

64 percent of the women who reported pain in their Achilles tendons, heels or
Ankles regularly wore high heels, pumps or sandals at some time in their lives.

The study found no link between foot pain and the type of shoes men wore.

Shoes such as high heels and sandals provide poor support and don't protect
Feet from the "shock" of hitting the pavement.

Researchers say athletic shoes or sneakers soften the shock and are best for any feet.

Podiatric specialists say women should save the high heels for special occasions, or keep them in a bag on their way to work.
