Celebrity Feet: Part 3

Celebrity: Elle MacPherson. Spring/Summer Shoe Style: High heels, stilettos, wedge heel.
Negative Impact on Your Foot: 
  • Due to heel height, ball of foot absorbs the full amount of pressure on the feet.
  • The heel height can also cause feet to wobble, which may lead to ankle sprains. 
  • Use a padded insert to alleviate pressure on the ball of the foot.
  • Always shop for high heels in the afternoon because feet tend to swell during the day, and buying shoes when feet are at their largest ensures a more comfortable fit.
  • Also try slightly lower heels to reduce pressure.
Celebrity: Kate Hudson. Spring/Summer Shoe Style: Platform sandal/shoe.
Negative Impact on Your Foot:
  • Ankle sprains.
  • Knee, hip, and lower back pain.
  • Platform sandals tend to be unsteady, causing instability and problems with balance.
  • Excessive height can also cause an ankle to rollover and possibly make a person fall. 
  • Lack of shock absorption affects other parts of the body by causing pain in the knees, hip, and lower back. 
  • Wear low platforms with secure straps.
  • Avoid uneven terrain.
Celebrity: Debra Messing. Spring/Summer Shoe Style: Strappy sandals, gladiator sandals, ankle straps.
Negative Impact on Your Foot:
  • Irritation along straps due to pressure and can also cause blisters.
  • Straps can choke circulation.
  • Ankle sprains.
  • Abrasion from straps irritates foot while walking and that friction causes blisters. 
  • If the straps are too tight, circulation to the foot diminishes. 
  • Sandal design puts excessive pressure on front of foot and gives a false sense of stability, which can cause ankle sprains.
  • Wear a wide, low heel with a stable sole, like a kitten heel, which allows for wider support and offers greater balance.
