A recently conducted survey by the APMA showed that in spite of their extensive shoe collections, only two percent of women say they wear high heels every day, and just five percent say they wear high heels five days per week. Almost half say they wear heels rarely or never (46 percent)—which may give them a leg-up when it comes to preventing permanent damage to their feet.

"With high heels, moderation is key. It's best not to wear them every day," said Matthew G. Garoufalis, DPM, past president of APMA. "Daily heel-wearing can cause the Achilles tendon, to shrink. This increases your risk of an injury while doing activities in flat shoes, including exercise." Heel wearers should avoid heels higher than two inches," said Dr. Garoufalis. "Wearing heels three inches or higher shifts body weight forward, and puts great pressure on the ball of the foot and the toes."
