evil heels & numb toes


i’ve just started a new job which requires me to wear high heels. i’m completely unaccustomed to them, and my feet hurt like hell for the 7 hours a day that i have to wear them. luckily this job is only for 3 days a week. it’s been 4 days since i last wore the shoes and the toes on my right foot are still pretty numb. the numbness makes me feel like i’m constantly walking on a bumpy surface. is this going to go away at some point? can 3 days a week do major damage to my feet/back/etc? i ask because i cannot afford to quit this job. is it just a matter of getting used to the shoes?
thanks for your time.r.c.


  1. Perhaps you might try another style of high heel shoes. Easy Spirit, Hush Puppies are some brands that make sensible high heels.Yes you can aggravate your feet/back etc wearing improper shoes.
