Women risk feet in name of fashion

7th September 2009

A poll of 2,000 women by the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists has shown that 37% would wear badly fitting shoes if they thought they looked good.

Eight in ten women said they had issues with their feet such as ingrowing toenails. Lorraine Jones, from the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists, said: "Many of us find it hard to resist a bargain and the latest fashion must-have, but it's important to remember that by buying ill-fitting shoes, you're not only going to end up in discomfort, but you are also putting your health at risk."
