Uncomfortable | Stilettos
When your heel is higher than a Colorado resident, undue strain can cause hairline fractures and inflamed nerves. Two-inch-plus shoes also shift the body forward, slowing your stroll. To alter your alignment, pop in padded inserts (Dr. Scholl’s Ball of Foot Gel cushions, $6, target.com).
