Women have about four times as many foot problems as men. Lifelong patterns of wearing high heels or other fashionable but restrictive shoes are often the culprit. Find out more here.

Tips for Women

  • Pantyhose or stockings should be correct size and preferably free of seams.
  • Do not wear heeled shoes that exceed two inches for extended periods of time (or you may experience foot problems such as metatarsalgia, a chronic pain in the ball of the foot).
  • Try fashionable “walking pumps,” with athletic-shoe construction, wider toe room and reinforced heels.
