Wearing heels regularly can affect your leg muscles over time, says podiatrist Dr. Bobby Pourziaee, a Los Angeles-based foot and ankle surgeon and the founder of the Spa on Rodeo. When you’re walking on tiptoes, your calf muscles are shortened—“and they can stay that way if heels are the only shoes you wear,” he explains. But that doesn’t mean you need to toss your peep toes. Try to alternate between heels and supportive flats, says Dr. Pourziaee. “When the foot is in a non-heel shoe, it’s allowed to stretch and recover.”

Another simple way to stem the damage: Add these three easy exercises to your regular workout routine. They're designed to target muscles in the calves and feet and around the ankles that can help protect against pain. 1) Seated calf stretch with resistance band, 2) Standing calf raises, 3) Towel scrunches.
