Foot deformities in women are associated with wearing high-heeled shoes
from Medical Science Monitor
The aim of this study was to assess the association between foot deformities and type of shoe regularly worn at work. Researchers studied 150 employed women ages 30-40 years and divided them into three groups according to type of footwear worn: women in Group I wore flat-soled shoes, women in Group II wore mid-heeled shoes (heels 4.0±0.5 cm), and women in Group III wore high-heeled shoes (heels 10.0±0.5 cm). They used the CQ-ST podoscope for measurements.
