I know many have written about the perils of heels etc, but what am I going to share is based on a friend’s experience.
Through out my few years of working life, I had only worn heels daily (almost) for the first two jobs.
As I moved into my 3rd job, I started to carry a notebook on daily basis, and it was also when I couldn’t stand the long walk with notebook in heels anymore. I wasn’t good with walking in heels anyway.

Such beautiful heels.
As I have moved into a new department, I am now more exposed to mankind (or rather, people who really bother to dress up to work) , and there are a couple of ladies who are always in beautiful high-heels.
You know, it’s like a pressure to see beautiful heels standing next to you, and when I look like crap in flats, and short of course. As tempted as I was, I just couldn’t bring myself to wear high heels after learning my friend’s story:
Here is how it goes:
My friend, has always been a fan of heels for a good several years. Eventually, she started to suffer backaches, and more problems followed.
And one of the significant changes was the shape of toes as pictured.
Totally adapted to the shape of the heels.
This is not the worst.
Soon, she experienced excruciating back ache and had no choice but to consult the chinese physician/chiropractor. To her dismay, a fraction of her spine has misaligned, and gradually pressured her pelvic bone. And as a result, her uterus was also affected due to the pressure at pelvic bone.
It’s quite a serious problem (at least it seems like one to me).
There’s no immediate resolution for her and she had to ditch high heels for good, and also go on and off treatment.
So, do you wear heels on daily basis? Or have ditched the heels for good? Please share us your experience 😉
