It’s winter and that means women everywhere will be pulling their favorite pair of boots out of the closet. While flat heeled boots are fine, those with high heels may leave you doing some acrobatics. Slips and falls from high-heeled boots account for dozens of injuries each year, turning the fashionable footwear into unflattering casts and crutches, according to the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.
 
Dr. Kevin Walker
 
 
“The foot is most stable when the ankle is closest to the shin,” said Dr. Kevin Walker, a podiatrist at Ogden Clinic. “With that said, women’s high heels present an interesting dilemma for the function of the foot. The higher the heel, the more unstable the foot and ankle.”  Walker said high heels during the holidays might make you feel like a million bucks, but the pain and unstable walking can have some pretty negative consequences, including foot, ankle, and back pain.
