So what makes heels so unhealthy? The answer is a no-brainer for Dr. Hartley Miltchin: “Humans were meant to walk flat on their two feet. Anything that changes this dynamic can create chaos, due to an instability in foot function and misalignment of the structures above. When we walk flat, 50 per cent of our body weight rests on our heel and the other 50 per cent rests on the ball of the foot.”
