Romance with shoe
For many centuries, a long love story has developed between women and shoes.
The relationship of most women with shoes is the plot for a great novel. For many centuries, a long love story has developed between women and shoes. Even the story of passion, as some psychologists and sexologists believe.
But these feelings can cause a woman to suffer seriously if, like the Anderson mermaid, she will feel pain as she walks with her beautiful legs in elegant shoes, as if she has to walk on sharp blades.
Fashionable shoes are often selected without taking into account the peculiarities of the structure of the foot, the state of the vessels of the legs, etc. But even the wondrous beauty of the shoes, if they are incorrectly selected, immediately reveal the torment of their mistress - with a clumsy, hard gait.
GOING LIFE EASY Our women can bravely run in high heels in the morning - whether they take the child to kindergarten, whether they are standing in a crowded subway car, or they do a marathon for shopping.
The danger of varicose veins, fatigue and a feeling of heaviness in the legs, headaches - what is the meaning of all these “nonsense” when we see the real miracle of shoe art in the window? problems with the legs due to improperly selected shoes. We forget that it is our shoes that should be adjusted to the shape of the legs, and not vice versa. In addition, not only the feet suffer from improperly selected shoes - high heels increase the load on the knees and spine, back and neck pains appear.
It turns out that our legs will inevitably avenge our love for hairpins, and when you literally fall from your feet by evening, you are no longer happy. No matter how much time you devote to your appearance, but if your legs hurt, you won’t be able to look and feel good.
HEELS AND EVERYTHING RELATED TO THEM There are three types of heels in height. Low is considered a heel up to 4 centimeters high, medium - from 4 to 6 cm. And high heel - from 6 cm and above. Pay attention to the thickness of the sole under the toe: if its thickness is 2-3 cm, then the actual height of the heel is considered exactly the same centimeter less.
Why are heels dangerous? With a heel height of only 2-3 cm, the load on the fingers and forefoot increases by 20% compared with the norm. When the heel reaches 6-7 cm, the load doubles. It is not surprising that a long stay in high heel shoes entails many unpleasant consequences, such as, for example ...
• Corns, which are formed on the front of the foot due to the large load on it and impaired blood circulation. As a result, the skin of the feet thickens, coarsens.
• Toe deformity. Those who constantly wear narrow high-heeled shoes are given a change in the shape of their fingers: due to constant squeezing, their fingers become flatter, their pads become wider.
• The appearance of "bumps" on the heel can cause high-heeled shoes with stiff heels.
Conclusions: shoes should not be too tight, squeeze fingers. Narrow shoes interfere with normal blood circulation, which increases the risk of varicose veins, and constant friction leads to corns. The socks of the shoes should be wide enough so that the fingers can move freely.
Choose your own heel: put on your shoes and try to rise on your toes so that the heels are torn off from the floor by at least 2 cm. If you find it difficult to do this, then such a heel is too high for you.
