Ever wondered why your friend can run for miles in sky high stilettos and you, well, just can’t? Podiatrist Margaret Dabbs tells us it's all in the science and learning how to respond to our feet. "Your foot’s arch moulds itself to whatever shape you put it in, so if you live in Converse, then you’ll have flatter feet than someone who has built up their arch support by wearing heels more often. Likewise, someone who wears heels every day may struggle to wear flats again, because the instep is now so high and the Achilles tendon has shortened."
 
Margaret Dabbs
 
"Wide feet need room. You’ll put pressure on the bunion joint and crush your toes if you squeeze feet into a style that’s too narrow at the front. Pain can come from the cut of the shoe as much as from the heel itself," says Dabbs.
