Kanye West's ill-fitting sandals attracted ire on social media, prompting him to defend his decision as wearing the shoes "the Japanese way". Podiatrist, and ambassador for the Australian Podiatry Association, Charlotte Bodell, says – "Japanese way" or not – it is not a good idea to get around in shoes that don't fit you. She describes West's overhanging sandals as simply "not good for the foot".

"If you're walking around and your heel is overhanging, even only for an hour or two, you're going to bruise the fat pad." Bodell says the part of the foot West's shoes leave unsupported is where a bone called the calcaneal tuberosity grows. When a person puts consistent stress on this area, it is possible for calcium deposits, known as a calcaneal spur, to form.
