    Maybe it is just me, but I think those new high heeled shoes just look plain ugly and clunky!!!

    mrs. fitz, Thanks for the info. I saw that thread. I've found some New Balance shoes work for me, but they have to be a mesh top. The leather tops do not stretch enough to accomodate my hammer toe. The mesh top is great when it's warm, get a little ventilation from the mesh, but they're pretty breezy in the winter .

    Some people will always go to extremes to be "fashionable" I just shake my head and wear my Crocs. Crocs are as unfashionable as anyone can get.

    All I can say is shame on the surgeon who will cut off toes for vanity's sake. Any surgery carries a risk, and to do something like this so you can wear a pair of rediculous looking shoes, is just plain stupid. Think of the implications for the future. Bunions are a different thing and are often a necessary procedure. It is interesting that the doctor being interviewed has a display of sensible shoes behind him in his office.

    I love flip flops and birkenstocks - another fun fact of aging for me - now that I am in menopause - my feet get so hot in shoes - I can't even wear socks and tennis shoes - I have to wear something cool and comfortable - most of the time I wear slippers - when I go out - something comfortable and open so I don't sweat to death. I have given up all my "sexy" shoes a long time ago - I just can't walk in high shoes anymore.

    Did they ever happen to think that the solution to their foot problems could easily be solved by wearing "sensible" shoes, instead of instruments of torture?

    this was in the news maybe 5 years ago, some people don't use common sense. I LOVE a pointy toe pump, but wouldn't alter my feet to wear them. The woman in the video complained that it hurt, and she shouldn't be judged.... I'll bet she had 'normal feet' you know, size 7 medium width.... I have a 9 1/2 C width on the right & 10 D width on the left; I don't have problem wearing a stileto, but, not those ridiculous platform pumps.
    she swims! she runs! She Quilts!?!?
