    Wearing high heels on a regular basis can cause leg muscle damage and change the way a woman walks even after taking the shoes off, findings suggest. In a study published in The Journal of Applied Physiology, researchers of the Griffith University compared walking and gaiting behavior of “habitual high heel wearers” and those who rarely wore heels.

    Heel lovers used to wear 2 inch (about 5 centimeter) heels for at least 40 hours a week for a minimum of two years while the others wore heels less than 10 hours per week. Findings showed that habitual high heel wearers had a neuromechanically adapted style of walking including shorter and more forceful strides. They also kept their feet almost constantly in a flexed, toes-pointed position which along with the shortened stride caused their calf muscles to shorten.

    The changes put heel users at a significant risk of damaging muscle strains and caused slides on more comfortable shoes like sneakers or flip-flops. “This represents a potential injury risk, and may partly explain the fact that high-heeled shoes are often associated with discomfort and muscle fatigue,” said lead author Neil Cronin who also warned that the changes and their related damages increase as heel wearers age.

    Researchers recommended women to take a break from their high heels and wear them only “once or twice a week”. High heel wearers should also apply particular care when exercising and putting strain onto their feet tendons that are not often fully flexed in order to prevent strains.

    How true!
    Kuna kipindi nikivaa flat shoes naumia tendon, fero, kiuno etc. and sometimes napoteza balance, as if nitaanguka kwa nyuma... nikikimbia with running shoes pia sometimes natumia only the front part of my feet.
    well, it is a difficult choice, i love my high heels. lol

    Mimi ni mtu wa flat halafu shotii kwa urefu. Yani kila wiki nitavaa raba, sandals na high heels kutokana na ratiba zangu. Napenda kubalance halafu ukizingatia nina miguu mizuri sitaki kuwa na vitogimbi.
