Footloose and fancy free? Not so much. Kim Kardashian's swollen feet strained against her perspex stilettos yesterday in Beverly HillsReality television star Kim Kardashian and movie star Julianne Moore like to flaunt out extravagant dresses but also the most fashionable and expensive shoes. However, many celebrities like the Kardashians and Moore don’t know how improper footwear can be seriously damaging their feet.

Kardashian was seen wearing a pair of stilettos, revealing the 32-year-olds swollen ankles. Moore attended the Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony as she walked down the red carpet with tight fitting heels revealing her poking pinky toes on the corners of her feet. Celebrities and the general public don’t seem to mind leaving their heels, to opt for more comfortable appropriate footwear.

It is important that the right shoes are worn for protection and guard against pain and discomfort. A podiatrist like Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care can make recommendations on how to care and find shoes that fit you, as well as help you with any foot pain you might have experienced from wearing ill-fitting footwear.

Proper Foot Care Leads to Better Health

Long periods of standing often times lead to pain and discomfort around the feet. Every day the body undergoes a series of stresses, especially during work. To minimize these stresses on your feet, better shoe choices and proper posture will significantly help.

Better Choices

A Negative Heel

· This is where the heel is slightly lower than the ball of the foot.

Going Barefoot

· Having your feet crammed into shoes for long periods of time increases pressure. Giving your feet some exposure to air and walking barefoot helps tremendously.

Exercise Your Feet

· A foot workout helps correct movements and stimulates the blood flow and muscles of the feet.

Foot Care

Spending a majority of the time on your feet will most likely trigger pain; even more so if you suffer from poor circulation.  Proper footwear and appropriate stretching will alleviate pain and prevent further issues. When your feet hurt, it is best to take care of them right away.
