FINDING 'KILLER SHOES'

ACCORDING TO DOCTOR SAYLEE TULPULE WHO IS A PODIATRIST IN WASHINGTON, D.C., YOU CAN EXPERIENCE UNSTABLE GAIT, JOINT PAIN, BUNIONS, HAMMERTOES, CORNS, ANKLE SPRAINS, INGROWN TOENAILS AND EVEN TUMORS OF THE NERVE TISSUE.  OFTEN WOMEN CHOOSE SHOES THAT LOOK GOOD OVER WHAT FEELS GOOD OR ARE GOOD FOR YOU.  THIS PROBLEM IS THEN EXACERBATED BY PURCHASING HEELS THAT ARE MORE THAN 2 INCHES HIGH OR ARE TOO SMALL OR NARROW THROUGH THE TOE BOX, WHICH LEADS TO COMPRESSION OF THE FOREFOOT AND OF ALL OF PAINFUL INJURIES ALREADY MENTIONED.

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING PODIATRISTS, CHIROPODISTS AND FOOT DOCTORS AGREE THAT FOR THE MOST STABILITY, WOMEN SHOULD LOOK FOR A PUMP OR DRESS SHOE WITH A WIDE TOE BOX, PREFERABLY ROUND, AND A 1 OR 1  1/2 KITTEN OR PLATFORM HEEL.  IF YOU OPT FOR FLATS, MAKE SURE THE SHOE HAS ROOM TO PUT YOUR ORTHOTICS IN AND SOME CUSHION.  THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG SHOE AS LONG AS THEY FIT PROPERLY, HAVE A WIDE TOE BOX AND A SMALL HEEL.  YOU'LL SURELY BE ABLE TO FIND" KILLER SHOES" THAT FIT YOUR PERSONALITY AND STYLE----AND WON'T RUIN YOUR FEET!
