Hazardous heels

-

Re: These is red shoes (never mind sensible shoes), April 14 You have done a grave disservice to women by printing this article by Sabrina Maddeaux. Stiletto shoes are dangerous and harmful. Besides affecting a woman’s gait, balance and posture, they cause serious foot, hamstring, knee, back, neck and shoulder problems.

Osteopathi­c specialist­s could also tell you of the blisters and bleeding feet they encounter in women who wear stiletto heels.

There is no reason shoemakers cannot make comfortabl­e, low-heeled shoes that are stylish and affordable. ($800 and up? Yikes!) Marian Gibbs, North Vancouver
