Women, Put Your Best Foot Forward
Women's feet are not just a smaller version of men's
feet—they're uniquely designed and, therefore, need different
support. The American Orthopedic Food and Ankle
Society (AOFAS) found that 80 percent of women have
foot problems, and not all of those are baby boomers.
Yes, I know why woman wear heels, after all, I'm 5'4"
and always wanted to be at least 5'7". We feel more feminine,
slimmer and better-dressed when we wear high
heels. That said, the amount of woman over 55 that are
suffering with symptoms that often can be directly related
to the type of heel on their shoes is astounding. Researchers
know most women's foot problems are due to their
footwear; these problems are not found in men!
