If you love heels, it's not all bad news, and it's possible you might have a medical reason to avoid flat shoes, says podiatrist Julie Schottenstein, DPM. "For some foot conditions, like plantar fasciitis, wearing a small heel is actually helpful, and wearing very flat shoes is discouraged," she explains. "Wearing a small heel, under 2 inches, can actually encourage the arch to lift, alleviating some discomfort and helping to stretch the fascia."

Also, if you have the perfect set of heels to go with that one amazing outfit, all is not lost. As with many fun things in life, moderation is crucial. "The key to wearing heels, in general, is to do it in moderation — in both time (three hours or less) and frequency, alternating in wearing them with more supportive shoes," Dr. Schottenstein explains.
