Victoria Beckham Will No Longer Be Wearing Heels Again.
In 2011 the fashion designer was ordered by doctors to stay away from her sky high stilettos due to a slipped disc in her back during her pregnancy with daughter Harper Seven. And even though the doctor’s orders were to take effect right away, Mrs. Beckham was still seen wearing heels despite the severity of her back problems. Five years later she explains she can no longer wear heels.
But, did Victoria Beckham Really Ditch the Heels for Good?
The former Spice Girl hasn’t hung up the heels altogether. She has been seen wearing heels to red carpet events. In fact, she reports heels are still a part of her wardrobe, yet simply not like before. Lately, she’s been photographed in flats and sneakers and reports say she seems to be liking it.
Lady Beckham, 42, stands at 5’4 inches, weighs 108 lbs, wears size 7 shoes, and suffers from the painful foot deformity of bunions. It had been reported she would have an operation in 2009, but it never happened. To date we have yet to get confirmation on this surgery. An insider believes she hasn’t made time for it due to her heavy work agenda.
Mrs. Beckham’s High Heel Foot Health
It is not clear if Victoria’s bunion problems were caused from wearing heels or if it’s a genetic deformity. What is clear is that her back problems are due to a slipped disk and not from wearing high heels. Daily Mail mentioned her back pain worsens when wearing high heels.
When is it Okay to Say Enough is Enough with High Heels?
My answer to the question above is, “ANYTIME.” It’s okay to say goodbye to heels whenever they become a health issue or simply whenever they are no longer comfortable to wear. Your body has a good way of telling you it is uncomfortable with aches and pains, inflammation, redness, bruising, weakness… And when these become more and more apparent, it could be a sign that you should attempt wearing low kitten heels or no heels at all.
Flatsies on the Go!
As ladies, we should have flatsies” everywhere we go, because you don’t know when your feet will give up on you. And yes no matter how comfortable the heels are. Because wearing high heels is a super terrestrial accomplishment (your body in heels walks against its anatomical position), whether you opt to wear those heels plushed with comfort or not, at some point your body will give up on them. For this reason, always have with you some cute, dazzling flatsies in your car and bag. You will thank yourself for preparing in advance, and your feet will be happy.
