Fashion-conscious American women are getting their pinky toes lopped off so they can fit into expensive high heels. “Why don’t we call it what it is: mutilation for fashion,” said podiatrist Dr. Michael Byrnes. “Thank God it’s not being done in Illinois. We have very responsible podiatrists in Illinois. I won’t do it, and no podiatrist I know would allow it. This started as an East Coast thing, then it became a West Coast thing, but not here. Not in Chicago.”

He explained that sometimes the pinky toe is cut down. And other times the bones in the longest toes are removed, “although if you remove too much, and try to put a sock on, your toe could fold over and you wouldn’t know it. “Some people need such surgery, to repair structural damage, to relieve pain,” he said. “But we don’t do it for fashion to fit into fashion shoes.” Yet aren’t Chicago women as stylish as the flyover people from New York and LA.? “Sure, they’re fashionable,” said Byrnes. “They’re just not crazy.
