high heels. However, wearing a high heel puts your foot in an awkward position and can lead to foot pain and other problems. If you don’t want to give up your high heels, there are some things you can do to minimize the pain and health risks to your feet.
According to a recent survey, nearly three-quarters of all women wear high heels. Of those women, 77 percent wear high heels on special occasions, 50 percent wear them to parties or out to dinner, 33 percent wear them dancing, and 31 percent wear them to work. The number of women who wear high heels daily declined from 1986 (60 percent) to 1996 (50 percent) to 2003 (39 percent). Younger women are more likely to wear high heels daily—49 percent of women aged 18 to 24, 42 percent of women aged 25 to 49, and 34 percent of women aged 50 and over wear heels every day.
Another recent industry study showed similar results, with 72 percent of women wearing high heels and 39 percent wearing them daily. Of women wearing high heels, 59 percent reported toe pain and 54 percent reported pain in the ball of the foot.
