If you are a stiletto heel addict and have a vast collection of high heels, a new British study may make you think twice about wearing them.
The high-tech scanner obtains hundreds of 2D images of a woman's foot while she wears heels, and the images combine to create a 3D image in under a minute.
Researchers say this breakthrough technology is the first time the effect of shoes on feet can be seen in real time.
Specialists could see that the shoe forced the foot into an unnatural position, which could lead to pain and long-term damage.
As a result of the study, orthopaedic specialists advise wearing heels "in moderation." Sarah Jessica-Parker has taken this advice to heart.
According to CTV News, Parker describes the damage already done to her feet as a result of wearing high heels.
"I went to a foot doctor and he said, 'Your foot does things it shouldn't be able to do. That bone there ... You've created that bone. It doesn't belong there,' stated Parker as she described the “cheap” shoes she wore to portray her working mother character in 2011 movie 'I Don't Know How She Does It'.
