A scientific look at the dangers of high heels
from The New York Times Well Blog
How shoes affect human gait is a controversial topic these days. The popularity of barefoot running, for instance, has grown in large part because of the belief, still unproven, that wearing modern, well-cushioned running shoes decreases foot strength and proprioception, the sense of how the body is positioned in space, and contributes to running-related injuries. Whether high heels might likewise affect the wearer's biomechanics and injury risk has received scant scientific attention, however, even though millions of women wear heels almost every day.
