The problem is, the prettier the shoe, the more painful they appear to be which essentially means the worse they are for your feet!

The numbers have been slowly rising so that 6 out of 10 arthritis sufferers have arthritis in their feet, with the majority of these sufferers being women. But it's not just the heels that are causing us problems. Ill fitting trainers that are not suitable for the sport being played are also to blame.
So what do we do? Well podiatrists recommend round toed shoes with shock absorbent soles and a 1 inch heel, and if you are going to play sport, make sure you are wearing the right footwear!

My interpretation? Everything in moderation, so there's no need to chuck out the pretty shoes just yet!
