This is a picture of an X-Ray of a foot in a high heeled shoe! Just look at the physical stress that is placed on the metatarsophalangeal joints! This also causes problems to the spine, not just the joints in the feet. It is sad to see what people do to themselves in the name of fashion. That shows how the statement “beauty is pain” is so true. Because there is no possible way to believe that heels are comfortable especially when they are over 6 inches high and pointed like a pencil, and makes whoever is walking in them look like they're about to fall on their face! They sure do look nice and “fashionable”, but not at all comfortable. This shows how most girls now a days care a lot more about their beauty than they do about their health.
