They say fashion is pain - but wearing high heels regularly can actually have serious impacts on your health. From lower back pains and bunions to restricting blood circulation, these are just some of the problems walking in stilettos for hours every day can cause. Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Sydney podiatrist Nicole Reillyrevealed how you can wear heels comfortably without hurting your feet.
"We always recommend sticking to the 80/20 rule, where 80 per cent of the time you wear sensible shoes, and keep your highest heels for limited activities," she said. "It really depends on the activity level. If you're working around the desk a lot, stick to lower heels or wear thicker wedges - they're more beneficial than stilettos."
