Stop the Presses: Victoria Beckham is Quitting High Heels!

Victoria Beckham's new style MO gets the podiatrist stamp of approvalYou guys, I’ve got BIG news! Remember when Victoria Beckham posted a picture of herself wearing high heels on a treadmill? I think you could hear the collective shudder of podiatrists around the globe as that little share went viral…

Turns out, the queen of the stiletto, Posh Spice herself, has had a change of heart when it comes to those toe-destroying little torture devices! In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Beckham admitted: “I just can’t do heels any more. At least not when I’m working.”

If you don’t believe her, check this out: Beckham walked the runway in sneakers after presenting her latest collection at New York fashion week! It seems that the pain, foot damage and instability associated with wearing high heels will, over time, catch up with even the most die-hard heel addict.

My advice to you? Don’t wait as long as Victoria to figure out how awful wearing high heels really is. The more years you spend rocking your stilettos, the more damage you’ll do to your feet: you’ll give bunions more time to develop, you’ll put strain on your Achilles tendon, you’ll make your toes curl up in a completely unnatural way—heck, you’ll probably get a sprained ankle or two trying to stay upright in those things!

So, do everyone a favor and learn from others’ mistakes! Wear supportive footwear whenever possible: you’ve got the official “Posh” stamp of approval now!
