In Medieval Asia, there was a “cute” tradition of wrapping girls’ feet in tight bandages to stop the growth of their feet. This lead to thousands of different injuries and health issues. Do you think that anything has changed since then? Employers often require women to spend at least 5 days a week wearing shoes that deform their feet. Yes, we are talking about high-heeled shoes. But the good thing is that today, women are pretty much ready to give up on wearing high heels and go to the office or to a social event wearing sneakers.
