Fashion News: The Brits Aren't So Keen Over Stilettos At Work

Women who work for the airlines, in city banks, and as retail associates in the U.K. are often pressured by sexist dress codes that force them to wear high heels, according to a recent study that the Daily Mail reported on. The union chiefs who issued the study also said that the sky-high heels cause long-term foot and back problems, so women should stick to sensible heels— ones  lower than 1.5 inches.

 

Sexist, you think? Back problems, really? Where have those guys been for the last 50 years?

 

Most of us are wearing those shoes because we want to. We know the risks and are willing to endure a little extra pain to look good— as long we’re not causing long term damage to our bodies. So do follow the old codgers’ advice and don’t wear your 5 inch Manolos every day. Save them for special occasions.

 

And to fight the normal aches from the more sensible low or mid-heels (or for those poor women still forced to wear skyscrapers at work) we have a few solutions:

 

We’ve already told you about Airplus Ball-of-Foot cushions ($5) and Heel liners ($5). They're the amazing gel cushions that literally make you feel like you are walking on air.

And at the end of the day, pamper your feet with Peppermint Foot Therapy by Upper Canadaanother SheFind’s favorite. The relaxing Salt Soak soothes and the scrub gently exfoliates, making your feet look and feel better.
