Rachel McAdams said: "You know, like high heels are not -, you know the older you get the harder it is to wear them". I loved my high heels, I could walk endlessly, even speed walk in my heels. They were just an extension of my foot. But, one day, I started to experience the most excruciating foot pain. I couldn't walk it off, I couldn't wear heels of any size, even barefoot was painful. I finally had to resort to seeing the podiatrist. And insult to injury, I was told I would have to retire my heels. I was crushed. My body was betraying me, life would never be the same. Slowly I am adapting to life without high heels, but I still feel heel envy. Enjoy them as long as you can....have you had to give up something because you realized it was causing you pain?
