PODIATRIST, MIKE O'NEILL STATES, "THEY'RE SEEN AS A SENSIBLE YET STYLISH ALTERNATIVE TO KILLER HEELS.  BUT EXPERTS HAVE WARNED THAT BALLET PUMPS CAN LEAD TO A HOST OF HEALTH PROBLEMS, FROM CALLUSES AND CORNS TO COLLAPSED ARCHES.  THIS TREND HAS LEAD TO THE TREND FOR BALLET PUMPS TO CAUSE A RISE IN TOENAILS.  BALLET PUMPS PUT A LOT OF PRESSURE ON A TOENAIL, AND THE PRESSURE MEANS THAT THE NAIL BENDS AND BECOMES INGROWN. THERE'S BEEN A BIG RISE IN THAT IN THE LAST 5 YEARS.  LEFT UNTREATED, AN INGROWN TOENAIL CAN LEAD TO INFECTION OF THE BONE AND, IN A WORST CASE SCENARIO, A PERSON MAY HAVE TO HAVE THEIR TOE AMPUTATED."
