Podiatrist, Dr. Emily Splichal states, "consumers often look to celebrities for style inspiration, but sky-high stilettos and shoes lacking the proper arch support can cause foot pain and increase the risk of plantar fasciitis and stress fractures. Women have four times as many foot problems as men, and high heels and incorrect shoe sizes are largely to blame. In order to keep feet healthy year-round, consumers should buy shoes that fit their needs, and add orthotics to get the proper arch support, whether they're looking for pumps, boots, or casual loafers."
