Head Over Heels.. Literally

I recently came across an article that reported "more than 3 million British women have received medical attention or been rushed to hospital because of their shoes."

1/10 of females have twisted their ankle or tore a tendon while wearing heels.

1/3 have fallen flat on their face as a result of their heels with many damaging their teeth and breaking their wrists.

6/10 say they will continue to wear these killer heels in the name of fashion.



My first reaction to this article was that it had to be an exaggerated survey. Then I began thinking of the amount of times I have fallen or twisted my ankle when I was wearing heels. Normally, I would just blame my extreme clumsiness and incredible lack of balance but now I have killer heels to blame for my embarrassing public spills.


These models know exactly what I'm talking about...
 
 
 
Look, even people who walk for a profession fall in heels sometimes. No need to feel ashamed about an occasional cement dive. 
KEEP ON TREKKING ON!
