High Heels: Upward Trend Alarms Docs

This is for the ladies in the house. If you are thinking about wearing the 8″ heel next summer, maybe you will think twice about them.

Take care of those feet.


As Seen On Amazon: Visco-Gel Toe Spacers

Da price: $3.95 and yeah, they are squishy lol

Man, I can’t get enough of these toe spacers can I? Unlike the other spacer posted here on Sneakers and Shoes, I actually use this one (not saying that there is anything wrong with the other one lol). It has helped my foot a great deal considering that my big toe is basically trying to leave me foot, stage left.

Anyway, I think guys and gals both wear sneakers or shoes that may not fit too well (I think ladies do it more than guys but guys ignore their feet more than ladies so it still stands that both need to take care of their feet), so here on this blog i will try to shed some light on foot care as much as possible.

Amazon has these, but I think you can find this in your neighborhood Rite-Aid or Duane Reade (why pay for shipping lol). If you know you just aint gonna go around the corner and down the block to your store to get them, you can order them at Amazon for 3.95… yes, 3 dollars and 95 cents.


Darn Those Sneakers Messin’ Up My Toes!!!

As seen from Luxist.com and originally found at YogaPro.com

OK, let me be the first to admit that I have problems with my toes. They come in just like in the picture. For whatever reason, I just didn’t do anything about it, until I took a job that I had to be on my feet all day.

Now I am paying attention.

Here is a quote from Luxist.com about the seriousness of this issue:

We at Luxist love Manolo and Jimmy and Stuart — their shoes are to die for. And sometimes the pain from a beauty like this makes toes feel like dying too. Here’s a solution: YogaToes. Basically YogaToes promises to give toes and feet a good stretch after they’ve been squashed in shoes all day and at the same time prevent icky and unattractive toe and bunion problems, something that’s important at this time of year if feet are to be sandal-ready!

Luxist seems to focus on the ladies… but guys, lets face it, we need them too. Having your toes point to your pinky toe is a problem. I am wondering if I can run on these feet of mine. I guess I will find out in a few weeks when I start running.

Anyway, I am sure there are plenty of people (male and female) who will need this. I think I may get it once I confirm that it will actually be good for my feet.
