High Heels or Low Heels

Between the high heels that sublime legs and flat heels that are ultra comfortable, difficult to make a choice …

High Heels or Low Heels

And if we alternated?

Regularly high heel heeled seems the best option to avoid collateral damage on the feet and back.

Flat heels, high heels: universal shoe does not exist

Ask a podiatrist or specialist back the shoes he advises every day and he will tell you that there is no universal answer to this question.

And because the morphology of everyone involved in the equation.

Result: a high heel felt quite comfortable by Mrs A may well be painful for Mrs. B.

However, some “mechanical” rules are common to all.

High heels disrupt body balance

In each of our positions, our body seeks balance.

When we wear high heels, this balance is more difficult to find.Indeed, once perched on high heels:

  • The body weight supported by the forefoot is more important .
    Which may induce pain at the base of the toes , but also deformations at the toes, as hallux valgus.
  • The center of gravity rises a few centimeters .
    Result: ankles are more prone to muscle fatigue and increases the risk of sprains.
  • The Achilles heel is hardly applied.
    Also, if wearing high heels daily, can shorten the tendon.
    Which will make the return to painful heels dishes .
  • The knees are constantly bending .
    In response to this flexion, the pelvis tends to tilt forward and lower back can become painful.
    Especially in women already bent naturally.

Stiletto heels and platform soles, same fight?

More comfortable than heels, the retro stilettos offer better contact surface .

They are therefore less harmful to the balance when walking. In contrast, all other consequences outlined above are still valid!

And flat shoes?

The shoes plates are those that most respect the natural shape of the foot and body posture. They are therefore better tolerated .

However, the very flat soles (such as ballet) also act on our musculature: they increase the voltage of the posterior muscles of the leg. A tension that, like the high heels, can also be accompanied by some discomfort.

High heels, low heels: pleasant change

In the end, the heel that experts recommend for everyday use is neither too flat or too high: 3 to about 4 centimeters.

If you like other forms of shoes, stilettos or ultra-flat pumps, it is not prohibited of course.

But alternate regularly, so that your feet and your back can recover between two occasions.
