what some people go through

hi,
i was doing some research on heelpain, fat pads, etc..and google came up with some AMAZING info. seems the newest rage in hollywood is to get collagen injections JUST so you can wear spike heels. also one site reported how women are actually having TOE amputations to be able to fit into those narrow pointy toed shoes. i couldn't believe it. what strange things come along...and all most of us want to do is WALK without pain.
geeshhh...

Linda:
Most podiatrists don't approve of 'cosmetic' foot surgery. There was a time back in the '50s when the very pointy toes were in and there were requests to remove the 5th (little) toe. Luckily, I am in the Seattle area where people tend to be into comfort more than style.
