18 Nov

High heels and their effect on women’s feet, legs and toes are often highly debated when it comes to the topic of women’s fashion. If you are a woman, it is likely you have found yourself in a situation where a brand new pair of killer heels left a bigger mark than just a great fashion statement.

This position may cause strain on knees, hips and the lower back.
