i have already heard about the collagen in the foot for more padding, but never had i imagined that women were shortening their toes for shoes. it's almost as if they forget that the risks most definitely involve the loss of the use of their feet. ppl forget how important their body is when they want something that bad. that's horrible and i feel bad for those whose surgery didn't turn out correctly. i am still having a hard time grasping these things. haven't they every heard of the gel sole inserts or the padding used for slingback and open toe stilettos? either way, it seems as if there was not enough research done and it's all just really sad.

Wouldnt wearing stillettos after foot surgery cause severe pain or even more damaging effects. I know that I have nearly cried after wearing a pair of Louboutins to a concert. Imagining that with the added pains of surgery could drive me to a life of flip flops. Dior flip flops of course.
