Foot Health

A medical alert tonight on the hazards of wearing high heel shoes.

It's summer time and it's fun to throw on a pair of colorful stilettos or platform sandals.

But listen up ladies, fashion and function don't always fit. Doctors say heels can lead to a whole lot of problems like corns, calluses, bunions, hammertoes, stress fractures, even nerve damage.

So experts are giving us some advice on how to look great while being safe. When shopping make sure to try on both shoes, shop in the evening when feet are larger because of swelling, and wear lower shoes as a rule and make higher heels the exception.
